Content Craftsmen client, Mom’s Design Build, once again won a national Contractor of the Year (CotY) Award from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry. The 2019 honor was in the Residential Landscape/Outdoor Living under $60,000 category. It featured a Wayzata project by Senior Designer Heather Sweeney. She accepted the award Friday evening at the Association’s annual Evening of Excellence event in San Diego, California.
This home actually is a main house and carriage house that were joined along the bend of a road near the Wayzata Yacht Club. The owners needed a landscape that would shield them from headlights, reclaim part of the front yard for themselves, and bring clarity to the main entrance. Creating the charming country landscape the owners desired required removing an ailing stand of cedars and planting a garden in the now sunny front yard. Features include a classic arbor and gates, clay paver and bluestone paths, and an abundance of easy care flowers and shrubs. The owner says it is her peaceful, tranquil place.
