For smaller projects, the enhancement team is on the case

The Landscape Enhancements team is unique at Southview Design because they work with both residential and commercial clients. 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.

"Because our projects can be so different from day to day, and person to person, our team has to include folks with many different skills," says Corey Lunde, Enhancement Manager. Indeed, the Enhancement team includes certified arborists, pesticide applicators, as well as EPA WaterSense irrigation auditors and technicians.

“The smaller residential upgrades could include monitoring the health of trees and plants, planting flowers, installing low-voltage lighting, adding pavers or installing small retaining walls," Lunde says.

For the month of May, Corey and his crews are busy working with many commercial clients - top-dressing the mulch in plant beds, creating and installing seasonal displays, and repairing snow-damaged plants and turf. In addition to maintaining the health and aesthetics of a property, Southview conducts irrigation audits and repairs, retro-fits for drip irrigation, makes recommendations on low-voltage lighting for functionality, and takes care of mulching, weeding, turf care, and fertilization.

From total renovations to simple enhancements, Southview design is here to help you to create your dream backyard. Contact us to get started on your landscape today.
