Make Your Lakeshore Your Own Paradise
From sunny days in the water to late-night stories by the fire, when it comes to summer living, there’s nothing quite like doing it lakeside. But it isn’t only the lake that makes those summer cabins special. Your shoreline can be a majestic all by itself. We’ve put together a couple of our favorite landscaping ideas to help you transform your space from summer getaway to lakeshore paradise.
Create a Green Look
Are you a plant lover? Well-designed softscapes complete with flowers, shrubs and decorative edging can elevate your cabin from a vacation home to a true lakeside getaway. Adding on a natural planting buffer can help modify your shoreline to create a lush, magical environment. And this green look will also protect your shoreline from erosion.
Natural Stone is In
One of the biggest trends in landscaping? Natural stone. You leverage decorative rocks and natural-looking hardscapes as part of your outdoor living space. Even better, with rip rap—or “rock armor,” you can extend the beauty of this design element all the way to the shoreline. This also helps repair erosion and prevent future damage to your property.
How Can I Transform My Inaccessible Shoreline?
Having a beach-side home away from home is a dream come true for many homeowners. But once you’ve bought the property and are ready to bring your vision to life, it can be challenging to fine tune your new space if the shoreline itself isn’t accessible from the road.
