Transforming Your Home and Lifestyle With Collaborative Landscape Design in St. Louis Park, MN

Creative Solutions and Sustainable Practices from a Local, Family-Owned Company

Every inspiring landscape starts as a flicker of an idea in someone's head—much like what you might have in yours. That gorgeous, personalized patio was once just a few vague thoughts about a more functional space, something with a dining area, perhaps, or an elegant garden with stone pathways. Fortunately, those ideas were brought in front of a landscape designer, who turned them into the plan that guided their creation. 

Bring your outdoor dreams to life in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. At 3 Bears Landscaping, we specialize in a collaborative design approach, where you're able to share ideas and feedback as we play with colors, textures, and the placement of your favorite outdoor features. It's meant to ensure you get the outdoor space you need and want, one that merges with your existing architecture, suits your interests and lifestyle, and matches your budget. 

We can take your project from start to finish with design, installation, and maintenance. This is our home, too, so we're deeply invested in creating long-lasting landscapes using sustainable techniques and equipment to ensure we're all enjoying this land for years to come. Our work is backed by years of local experience and Papa's Guarantee, our promise that you'll love your landscaping, or we'll make it right. Whether you're dreaming of improved landscape lighting to enhance safety and aesthetics, fresh plantings and raised garden beds, or a complete transformation that basically turns your St. Louis Park outdoor space into another living room or kitchen, contact us today to get started.

  • Let’s Talk

    Fill out the form here on the website! It only takes a couple of minutes. You'll receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your phone call at a time that works for you. This is a 15-minute conversation to discuss your vision for your landscaping, and it's an opportunity for us both to decide if we're the right fit for your project.

  • Landscape Vision Consultation

    Within 48 hours of your introductory call, we'll reach out to schedule your full consultation. Maintenance plans are customizable according to your property and your needs, and we can often come to an agreement before the call is over. For installation projects, we'll discuss your preferences and budget and set up a time for an in-person consultation ($60).

  • Design Phase

    After the consultation, you'll complete a Customer Questionnaire to give us even more guidance and insight into planning your project. The design fee is $895 (minus your consultation fee), plus $500 if you'd like a 3-D design. You'll be able to review your design presentation on Zoom, and our fee includes two revisions, so you can further customize it to your preferences. Together, we'll decide on materials and set up your installation in phases, if required. From there, we'll prepare an estimate.

  • Sign the Agreement

    When you love your design, you'll sign the work agreement and pay 50 percent of the project cost upfront. For installations we'll prepare your materials and crew, and we can usually start work within eight to twelve weeks. For maintenance service, we’ll get you right on the schedule.

  • We'll Go to Work

    Your dedicated manager will be with you from start to finish. Reach out to him any time you have questions or concerns.

  • Take Your Final Walkthrough

    We want you to be thrilled with your landscaping, which is why we offer a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. If something's wrong, we'll make it right. If you're not happy, we'll make it right. The remaining 50 percent of the project cost is due upon completion.

  • Keeping Your Landscape Happy

    So you can enjoy your landscaping for years, we'll teach you how to take care of it. You can do this yourself, or we're happy to discuss our maintenance plans with you and set up a schedule that keeps your yard looking its best. We’ll continue to check-in with you to make sure your landscape is always looking its best.
