Lake Side Retreat

Project Overview

Plan: Create an inviting front entrance and space where family and friends can gather.

Challenge: This project was located 3 hours north of Edmonton on a remote lake. The team needed to plan every detail prior to starting the project to ensure materials and tools would all be available as required.

Result: We engaged our landscape designer with the ideas of the client and developed a plan checked off all the boxes on the clients wish list. Large armour stone boulders were trucked in from Ontario to stabilize the steep hill beside the driveway. A large paving stone patio and walkway was installed which included a massive outdoor fire pit. Low voltage landscape lights were incorporated to show off the landscaping and help guests navigate and elevation changes. The project was budgeted for 4 weeks and our crew delivered.
