The Lindberg family of Canyon, Minnesota hired Mike Saline of Saline Landscape and Design to undertake a complex, multiple-month landscaping project meant to improve the appearance and privacy of their new home. Saline’s project, which draws from Australian and French designs, makes extensive use of gabion walls — basically, metal baskets filled with rocks — and also incorporates benches and a fire ring. Drainage is also a major landscaping issue, especially in the Duluth area. If you regularly see standing water or soft areas, this may be a sign it’s time to do some planting and sodding and make some use of sloping and dry tile to improve drainage.
- The people that are savvy with their landscaping can have such an efficient home.
- There are a lot of people who struggle with drainage issues on their own properties.
- Some individuals are not aware of the costs that come with inputting a drainage issue.
