Throughout the Twin Cities, Southview Design landscaping customers are enthusiastic about referring us to friends, neighbors, and family.
Landscape designers and architects from Southview Design share their knowledge and expertise with ideas, news, knowledge and trends.
A thoughtful design is crucial to the success of the project, and grading and drainage should certainly be considered. In fact, underground piping and the freeze-thaw cycle are primary factors when considering water management and slopes/grades.
Additionally, the hard surface square footage as a percentage relative to the overall square footage of your lot has become increasingly important as lots have become smaller and home footprints larger.
Hardcover, irrigation, pools, electrical work, and minor grading (in some cases) may require permits or variances from your county, city, DNR, and/or Watershed District. Be sure to allow plenty of lead time as some permits can take weeks at the height of the season.
Finally, whether hiring a contractor or planning a do-it-yourself project, there is no replacement for quality materials and careful craftsmanship. Both ensure the value, longevity, and accuracy of your project.
