Dream Yards: Lakefront Living Ideas
Join us as we explore a Trussville, AL backyard that takes full advantage of its stunning shoreline to maximize lakefront living? And, that’ll ultimately help inspire your very own lakeside landscape ideas? In this Dream Yards episode, join veteran landscape designer and Dream Yards host Jane Waldrop for a behind-the-scenes look at the one-of-a-kind waterfront abode Rod McSweeney and his wife call home.
About the Lakefront Lot
The McSweeneys were immediately drawn to their neighborhood because of a unique lakeside point lot that was available. The property afforded them many lakefront living ideas and opportunities. In particular, the limestone seam running down the left side of the property’s backyard lent itself to some excellent natural landscaping options.
Everything “pointed” to water.
Above all else, the McSweeneys’ love of water—and activities in and around it—form the foundation of their backyard oasis. As avid water skiers and fishermen—not to mention owners of a water-loving dog—Rod and his wife love the peace and seclusion their lakeside yard provides.
Jane wraps up her visit with Rod by discussing the role his landscape maintenance partner—Quality Creative Landscaping—and Exmark products have played in making the McSweeneys’ dream yard a reality.
Now that you’ve had a taste, what will your dream yard look like?
