Well-designed landscapes add value to your home or residential property. Timberland Outdoor Services provides a full range of residential landscape services, each backed by nearly six decades of landscape experience.

Initial Meeting / Consultation

After our initial conversation with you, we will schedule an on-site consultation. This consultation will include a viewing of your property and an informational interview to determine your individual preferences, use of outdoor space, styles, and budget parameters.


With the information from our consultation in hand, our team of designers starts the design process. Design options vary and will depend on the size and the scope of your project. Designs may range from hand-drawn sketches, renderings or plans, to CAD designs and full- colorized plans. For those of you who may have trouble visualizing a prospective landscape, we also offer computer imaging, using a digital photograph of your home, to create virtual before and after images.

Landscape plans can be implemented as one project, or over a period of time to address budgetary needs. Either way (over one season, or several), the end result is a beautiful landscape you can enjoy for years to come.

Once you have approved the final design, plan and budget, we get started on the landscape installation. Our professional installers have the know-how to get the job done right and on time. We use the highest quality plants and products to create landscapes that endure.

All Timberland landscape services are enhanced with unmatched customer service. We pay close attention to details – and we listen to you. Your complete satisfaction is our goal. View our gallery of residential landscapes.

Shasta Frandrup


Shasta founded Timberland with a vision for bringing the highest quality landscape services to the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area. He brings his nearly two decades of experience in landscaping to every project. He’s weathered the economic downturns of the industry, and remains committed to keeping his team focused on landscape excellence. Inspired by his world travels – often off the beaten track – Shasta brings a perspective to landscapes often absent from other local landscape designs. He enjoys fishing, hiking, and camping, and always includes a trip to the Boundary Waters of Minnesota in his annual activities.

Carl Gillies


Carl is an outdoorsman who enjoys a good fishing expedition nearly as much as he enjoys designing beautifully artistic landscapes for residential and commercial clients. He has his bachelor’s degree in Landscape Architecture from Utah State University. Carl has worked on diverse projects ranging from residential landscape design to completing the landscape plans for a 398-acre Master Planned Community, which featured a community recreation facility, pocket parks, green belts and a trail system. Carl’s experience has taught him the value of hard work and good communication. He enjoys the satisfaction of a job done well. He provides design excellence and unparalleled service with good humor, team collaboration, and strong insight into what works and what doesn’t for enduring landscape design.

Fernando Ibarra


Fernando is known as the Machine Man around the Timberland campus because he not only can fix everything but machines seem to work a little better under his skillful direction. Having worked in Minnesota as a landscaper for 17 years he has truly had his hands on every part of the trade. His experience, skill, and vision have created hundreds of time-tested landscapes across the Twin Cities. When not on the job for Timberland, he is a dedicated family man, often helping his son design and create interesting, award winning, science projects. His second nick name is Mr. Perfection and he took that same skill, dedication, and intelligence and applied it to becoming a citizen in 2010. There wasn’t a lunch break that went by without his diligent studying that year. Not surprisingly, he passed with excellence. Undoubtedly, his favorite machine is any machine he can get his hands on!

Lee Frandrup


Lee is not just a turf specialist, he is a turf enthusiast! Commercial property managers would be hard-pressed to find another specialist who cares for their properties as well as Lee does. He takes pride in his work and enjoys creating the flawless turf lines which have become his on-site “signature.” Click on our blog link to see an example of how Lee’s work significantly increases the curb appeal of commercial properties: Turf Lines with Curb Appeal | Timberland. Outside of work, Lee enjoys just about any type of outdoor activity. Hunting, fishing, and snowmobiling are right up his alley. His love of one outdoor activity, baseball, led him to play Division 2 for the University of MN, Duluth and Division 3 for the University of St. Thomas while he was earning his degree in business management.

Dawn Frandrup


Dawn returned to her roots when she joined the Timberland Outdoor Services team in 2014. Landscaping must be in the Frandrup blood! After spending years in the financial and healthcare industries, fond memories of working in the landscape field prompted her to come to her senses. Dawn has a bachelor’s degree in finance and brings a wealth of analytical, financial, and business knowledge with her. A perfectionist at heart, she is excited to be part of a team where commitment to quality is not just a phrase, but a reality. When she is not working, Dawn enjoys spending time with her family, preferably outdoors. She has high hopes of cultivating a love of fishing and camping in her daughters. As they grow older, Dawn envisions many family weekends of outdoor adventures! Contact Timberland to get started on landscape design and installation for your home, business, or commercial property.
