DreamScapes owner, Alex Shuda started out as a young entrepreneur at age 12, pushing wheelbarrows and driving tractors down the street to his neighbor's homes in Roseville, MN providing landscape installation & mowing services. Soon, he realized his love for creating beautiful landscapes, and seeing the joy created in his clients' eyes.

Today, DreamScapes has been creating beautiful landscapes for over 30 years and has grown into a Full-service Design and Installation company with award-winning in-house professional designers & architects, 35+ year-round experienced crew members, and cutting edge equipment and technology.  Our experience & commitment to quality enables us to give our clients a five-year warranty on hardscape construction and a one-year plant warranty.  The Best Warranty in the Business!


 At DreamScapes our mission is "Creating the Twin Cities' most beautiful landscapes". 

Our mission has inspired us to build a business around implementing the highest quality standards 

to create truly breath-taking landscapes while forming long lasting relationships.
