Tier One Landscape had a great time during our appearances on Home & Garden Television’s (HGTV) Landscaper’s Challenge and Landscape Smart.

The design featured a southern-inspired backyard haven with a magnificent deck, outdoor kitchen, and lush new landscape featuring boulder walls and naturalistic plantings. In Landscape Smart episode LDS-1071, Tier One Landscape increased the client’s habitable space by building a luxurious backyard room, complete with bluestone patio, trellis, arbors, new trees and plantings. We were also recently featured on the new Twin Cities Live program, airing on our local ABC affiliate, KSTP.
