Matt Burton : Landscape Designer
  • Graduated with a degree in Landscape Design and Construction.  My experience installing and managing large landscape projects puts me in a unique position of understanding the viewpoints of both contractor and designer. This is especially useful when creating a functional & sustainable design that will cater to my client’s specific needs. 
  • Began working in the industry in 1992 and worked my way up from laborer, foreman, to project manager, to landscape designer. In that time, I gained experience and confidence working in all areas of the industry – design, sales, and project management.
  • Started at Southview Design in 2004 as a Project Manager. I enjoy working with new people to the industry - teaching and exchanging ideas on proper construction practices and the importance of taking time to do things the right way.
  • I have designed/installed projects ranging from small back yards to large estates, hotels, corporate headquarters from patios, fountain fire features to outdoor living spaces. 
  • My wife Stacy and I live in Golden Valley and enjoy the use of Theodore Wirth Park outside our door. The old growth trees and the trails make every ski, walk or hike a real treat!
  • Any free time I have is spent sailing in the Apostle Islands but I aslo enjoy snowboarding, XC skiing, mountain biking, and fly-fishing
