Client Need

To be the most attractive higher education campus in SE Wisconsin.

Inspiration

Lake Michigan views and the stunning park-like grounds.

Favorite Element

The flower bed by the lake (boat bed) pulls all the flower colors in shades of blue to mimic Lake Michigan’s colors.

Biggest Challenge

Getting the project completed prior to graduation in early May when cold temperatures always exist along the lake.

Proudest Accomplishment

Winning a WLCA Silver Award against great competition.

Tough Moment

Lake Michigan can blow cold winds across the property, causing multiple flower failures in spring plantings.

Fond Memory

Having many people stop me when doing site inspections to say the flowers are amazing.

Life by the Lake
With a panoramic view of Lake Michigan as a backdrop these owners love spending time in their yard; however, their existing stone patio didn’t meet their family’s needs or match their peaceful lake vision.
