The possibilities of any landscape design are truly endless. Between making choices on all the color varieties of shrubs, trees, mulch, rock and different paver and block type - it is a massive undertaking. Our designers can help you craft the best landscape for your property and ensure each and every shrub is placed in ideal locations based on the plant's individual needs such as soil condition and sunlight.
There is nothing quite like watching the sunset after a day on the water around a fire. What better way to enjoy the warm summer nights than on a custom paver patio with a fire pit for all to gather around? Or if you desire a more functional paver structure such as a walkway, stair-set, or a driveway - we do those too!

Retaining, Freestanding, and Privacy Walls
Retaining walls are a great way to add aesthetically pleasing visual interest in your property. Retaining walls, both boulder or concrete block, are multi-functional! Utilizing a retaining wall to hold back that steep slope, allow for space to be created for a future patio or at a minimum, reduce erosion risk.
Custom Block Stairwells
If walking down to the lake is a challenge, a set of stairs will curb that challenge and make trips to and from the lakeshore much easier!
Mulch is one of the most beneficial additions to your landscape - with wide varieties of color to choose from allow your shrubs and trees "pop out", reducing your water bill by retaining moisture in the soil for your shrubs and flowers, plus acting as a natural weed barrier.
Our mulch application guidelines: we highly recommend at least 3-4" to allow new plantings to retain adequate moisture. If you are just refreshing your landscape, then a topdressing depth of 1"-2" is optimal. Contact us today to see the mulch type and color varieties we have to offer!
The best option for those who want a more maintenance free and one-and-done landscaping approach. When properly installed, decorative rock with underlayment will stop weeds in their tracks and provide an amazing looking landscape. Black Rock Landscaping offers rock in a variety of colors and styles such as Buff Limestone, River Rock and much more.
Plants - Trees, Shrubs, Perennials and Annual Flowers
Make your landscaping in Crosslake stand out from the neighbors. Our expert team is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to the proper placement and planting location of tree and shrub varieties and their specific requirements such as sun exposure and soil conditions.
Landscape Bed Edging
A degree of separation is always necessary to keep your bulk material (rock or mulch) in the landscape bed/garden and the turf where it belongs. We offer several types of edging - boulder, concrete bullet, plastic and more.
Do you have water running towards your home when the snow melts or during heavy rains? If so - you may need to have the slope and grade corrected with black dirt and grading. We also offer lawn renovation and establish new lawns with sod for residential and commercial properties.
We also offer other cost-effective options for lawn establishment - such as traditional grass seed and ultra efficient hydroseeding. Contact us today for more information.
Is there anything better than spending the day lakeside on a sand beach or patio built near the lake to enjoy the warm summer days and nights? With our lakefront landscaping services - that dream becomes reality.
