Lake-Friendly Landscaping – Shoreline Buffers

Creating a shoreline buffer on your property can protect Lake Minnetonka’s water quality and overall health by:

  • Stabilizing soil and reducing erosion
  • Filtering out pollutants and sediments
  • Absorbing nutrients from stormwater
  • Offering shelter for local wildlife

Help Lake Minnetonka and help yourself.

Adding a shoreline buffer of native vegetation can save time and money on maintenance as well as provide added privacy from lake users.
Visit the MN DNR website or for information about recommended plants and how to get started.
