Lake Waconia, Minnesota
Clean, simple and angular. The plantings and landscape play off the architecture of this minimalist home, also designed by Studio Hittle. Trees are spaced evenly in straight rows and 90-degree corners. Native grasses are bunched in rectangular plots. Walkways are placed on a grid that echoes the architecture.
A single 150-year-old oak anchors the lakeside yard. An adjacent deck sits in its shadow with long, lazy views out over the lake. This is an easy, open landscape with no maintenance, no frills—just what the homeowners ordered.
