Southview Design is a landscaping contractor with a hard-earned reputation for excellence in landscape design, construction, and service. Since 1978, we've completed over 8,000 landscaping projects in Minneapolis, St. Paul, the Twin Cities area, and western Wisconsin.
Thorough, meticulous, and responsive. The most responsive contractor we have ever used. Every employee, from receptionist, to project supervisor, was professional, effective, and respectful. Always felt comfortable conversing with Southview Staff. They were always helpful and considerate.
Our designers and project managers bring years of landscape design and construction expertise to the dining room table – helping you create a uniquely personal space that fits your values, budget, personality, and lifestyle.
Some of our projects are award-winning landscapes that have been featured in magazines. But most of our work is more modest, and that's fine with us. We've made a lot of people really happy by solving drainage problems, building beautiful patios and driveways, and designing comfortable, relaxing outdoor rooms.
Our Design-Build Process
Our unique design-build process ensures that all our clients enjoy the same great landscaping experience. Our landscape designers and project managers communicate diligently from start to finish. Attention to detail makes the process pleasurable, not painful. When our professional landscaping crew arrives to install your design, you'll be amazed how fast, neat, polite, and efficient we are.

The Southview Experience
Southview professional landscape designers use their deep knowledge and expertise to plan robust northern landscapes that (with proper care) will thrive and grow, even in the most challenging Minnesota weather. The trees we plant will shade and protect; the walls, steps, driveways, and patios we build won't buckle or shift; and next year, the blooms will be brighter and more abundant.
Our Industry-Leading Warranty
The workers were always very friendly and courteous, and cleaned up each day. And, whenever there was an issue, SV was quick to respond and resolve. We are very glad to have chosen SVD for our landscaping needs.
