Client Need

Pond reconstruction, extensive berm screening and complete site landscape development.

Inspiration

A large residential site that needed professional design to pull all of the landscape elements and needs of the client together.

Favorite Element

Multi-purpose elevated pond peninsula that serves as a focal point, jump-off platform and a three hole putting green.

Biggest Challenge

Dewatering a pond with shallow ground water, which had an inflow of more than 700 gallons per minute, making pond excavation and shaping difficult.

Proudest Accomplishment

Continuing to move forward with additional phases of the project and having great germination of 10-15 acres of grass seed.

Tough Moment

Unexpected ground water affecting the allee of maple trees along both sides of the entry drive.

Fond Memory

Very pleased client, a beautiful project.

Gather Round the Grill
This Menomonee Falls family requested an outdoor grill, but little did they know that it would become the heart of the home.
