Landscape with pool

Bringing the landscape up to modern standards.

The existing landscape for this custom-built home was outdated, including poor, incongruent materials, which made the home look tired.

The homeowners approached Prairie Blue to bring the landscape up to par with and complement the home in a way that reclaimed under-utilized space and maximized views of the lake and dune landscape.

A second home away from it all.

Today, the homeowners can look forward to weekend getaways or longer vacations with family away from busy city life. 

The landscape is care-free, requiring minimal maintenance to always look it’s best — the children now have plenty of space to play outdoors.

Key Design Features

Designing with the best of the beach in mind.

Contemporary beach vibe.

This contemporary beach retreat includes a new pool, pool deck, custom fencing and gardens.

Materials for a modern look.

A driftwood-gray wood and wire fence maximizes views of Lake Michigan.

Neat & low-maintenance.

Artificial turf was used throughout the backyard to create clean, low-maintenance spaces for the client’s young children.

Since 2014, we have used Prairie Blue for design, installation, and landscape maintenance on two separate properties. Through all the projects, we have always been impressed and pleased.
