Two brothers: Adam on the left, and Josh on the right

The Koller brothers started their landscaping careers in South Dakota. Josh was intrigued by the creativity of landscape design. Adam loved the challenge of landscape construction. It comes as no surprise they were a team from the beginning. Josh designed and Adam installed.

Southview Design has been their career home. Adam followed Josh to Southview Design, and for five years they were a designer/project manager team. Josh thinks working with family is fantastic but there are drawbacks. At times, they didn’t see eye to eye on a project. They always managed to resolve the differences and put together beautiful projects. Despite the occasional sibling rivalry, they have remained close throughout their lives. Family events would turn into a lot of shop talk. It’s all linked to their passion for the industry.

Josh is currently a Lead Designer, managing a team of design associates and project managers. He designs approximately 75-80 projects a year. He became a Partner at Southview Design 7 years ago and believes Southview is stronger because of the families. Besides being a family-owned company, Southview Design has had a number of fathers, daughters and sons, uncles, and cousins working on our crews over the years.

Adam has moved up through the ranks, starting as a supervisor to his current position as Construction Division Supervisor. Approximately 70 employees report to Adam, and he’s managing 4-7 projects at any given time.

When asked to tell us something about each other that other people might not know, Josh said his brother is an amazing father – he’s a natural at parenting. Adam said although his brother is demanding professionally, he has a generous and giving heart.
