The existing slope of this lakefront property in Chisago City, Minnesota was overgrown and difficult to manage. The homeowner wanted to revamp their sloped backyard into a more usable space to enjoy their lakefront property. To achieve this, sections of the existing stone retaining wall were removed to create a grass walking path that switchbacks down the slope. This change allowed the homeowner to easily maintain each landscaped level, as well as bring larger items to and from the boat. Portions of the retaining wall needed to be rebuilt to match the new slope, and the shoreline was rebuilt with boulders to prevent further erosion. Each planting bed was then cleaned up to define the multiple tiers of the lakefront property.
