Before & After

Custom design takes center stage in Lakeland, MN


Here is one example of how Ground Breakers can help you turn a lifeless place on your property into one you can enjoy.

Ground Breakers took on a project last summer for a family who wanted to transform a manmade pond with overgrown shrubs into something new. The home in Lakeland, Minn. had an existing deck near the backyard project site. Their goal was to build a new hardscape into this existing structure.

Once our Ground Breakers staff assessed the family’s needs, it was determined that a patio with a sitting wall would be built next to the deck. The family requested the patio and sitting wall be constructed using materials with a natural stone look.

After looking at many different paver and block options, the Ground Breakers crew found the best materials for the job. Natural-looking pavers were used on the floor of the patio, and the block used for the sitting wall replicated natural stone. Plantings with mulch were installed to clean up the space surrounding the patio

The customer was ecstatic once the patio was constructed exactly to their needs. Now this family has a deck and patio to enjoy, rather than the dead space they were previously avoiding.

This one of many examples where the Ground Breakers crew designed and installed a landscaping project to meet a customer’s needs. If you have an idea in mind for your home, contact our Ground Breakers representatives today to get started on your next project.
