2016 MNLA AWARD FOR Excellence

Southview Design Receives Award for Excellence in Landscape Design

Members of the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association (MNLA) were recently honored with a 2016 MNLA Award for Excellence in Landscape at the Northern Green Expo in Minneapolis.

Among those honored through the Landscape Awards program was Landscape Designer Tim Johnson of Southview Design in St. Paul.

Johnson’s design took a dated mid-century home in Minnetonka and created relaxing outdoor spaces featuring water and fire. However, like so many families in recent times, the homeowner saw her two adult children move back home. If that weren’t enough, a close (like a cousin) family friend bought the home next door. With an eye toward creating spaces for family gatherings and occasional entertaining, the entire yard was renovated and spilled over into the neighbor’s yard so that it really was ‘All in the Family’.

Southview Design is expert in residential and commercial landscape planning, construction and design. Founded in 1978, Southview has completed over 7,000 landscaping projects. Listed among the top 25 fastest growing residential landscape firms in the U.S., Southview's landscape designs have garnered awards from the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association (MNLA), the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), and local, regional, and national awards from the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI).
