Landscape designers and architects from Southview Design share their knowledge and expertise with ideas, news, knowledge and trends.
No matter what scale your project, landscaping is a significant investment. So, what is it that elevates a landscape design from the ordinary to the luxurious?
Fine craftsmanship. Refined aesthetics. Superior comfort. Over-the-top grandeur.
These are the elements of luxury.
Luxury design is not exclusive to suburban estates and backyard resorts. We believe that any project can be imbued with a sense of lasting distinction and quality without raiding the kid’s college fund.
The backyard is where we escape the confines of our four walls. A place to feel the sky, and wind, and sun. What is a backyard without those extra elements that go above and beyond?
Small natural stone fountains aren’t a strict necessity but add to the aesthetics and atmosphere of this patio.

Even small yards can hold plenty of creature comforts. This petite backyard includes a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen, and wood-fired oven.
When something is made for you, it is one-of-a-kind and fits like a glove, perfectly tailored to only you. It belongs only to you. That is the peak of luxury.

Though few of us experience it, we’ve all seen in a magazine or on a TV show homes that truly exemplify a lifestyle of luxury. Here’s a taste of two maxed-out Minnesota backyards.

Not all landscape projects are design/build construction. Smaller landscape upgrades that improve the aesthetics and health of a residential or commercial property are called enhancements. Meet the enhancements team.
As homeowner’s begin the vetting process, they may notice that there are two primary classifications of landscape design professionals, ‘Landscape Architects’ and ‘Landscape Designers”. This observation often pegs the questions, “What’s the difference?” and “Which is the right fit for my project?”.
The front entry is the gateway to your home. It should welcome guests or be a comfortable place to pause before saying good night. Over the years, Southview has installed hundreds of front yard living spaces. From charming front porches, to cobbled walkways and even front yard Zen gardens.
