Creating a Custom Lakefront Paradise

Many Minnesotans dream of spending warm, sunny days living the lake life at their cabin up north. When a client in Crosslake, Minnesota, wanted to convert a large property with a private bay into the perfect summertime paradise, they relied on Spear’s Landscape to bring their vision to life. A project this size offers endless possibilities. We provided a complete landscape renovation, including an inground pool and hot tub, a full kitchen with a pizza oven, and a complete shoreline restoration.


To complete this project, we:

  •  Laid paver walkways leading to the front entryway and throughout the spacious outdoor living area
  • Installed an inground pool and hot tub surrounded by lounging areas
  • Built a custom four-season porch with a grill, full bar, TV, and plenty of seating
  • Constructed a full outdoor kitchen featuring a pizza oven, grills, warming drawers and storage, high-top seating, and pergola
  •  Installed an outdoor fireplace and multiple fire pits with seating spaces
  • Incorporated a large outdoor dining table and additional seating throughout walkway and pool areas
  •  Completed a total shoreline restoration with a finished, sandy beach and boulder retaining walls
  • Built natural stone steps and walkways leading to the beach, docks, and lakeside fire pit
  • Included a separate storage shed near the docks and boat lifts
  • Incorporated custom masonry and stonework accents throughout the landscape
  • Designed and installed custom lighting and fire features for stylish accents and nighttime usability
  • Added decorative rock, mulch, plants, and edging for a beautiful, finished look

Lake homes should be a year-round home away from home as well as a summertime sanctuary. With this project on Cross Lake, our expert landscape design-build team brought the client’s dream escape from the city into reality. From lounging by the pool or at the beach on sunny summer days to enjoying nights under the stars by the fire, this breathtaking landscape can be enjoyed by all at any time of year.
