Harmonious Design

Updated Apr 22, 2013

Drawing from nature, MINT Landscaping used stones, water and plants to create a landscape that seamlessly blends into the forest. The homeowner wanted a design that tied in their existing pond and wooded lot, keeping the area natural with a relaxing feel. MINT Landscaping, from Cornelius, North Carolina, built a water feature – starting at the back patio – that trickled down to a stone patio and fire pit.

The water feature incorporates two waterfalls that flow into a stream, which winds around a stone pathway about 120 feet down the property. They also added boulders, providing a natural walkway across the water.

To complete the earthy effect, the landscapers installed a variety of green plants throughout the mulch.
