Southview Design had the good fortune to mentor two interns from the Landscape Management program at Brigham Young University. Juliana and Noah came to Southview this past summer, eager to learn how our company functions. They spent time in design, maintenance, marketing, and in the field.Their time in the field included landscape installation, maintenance, irrigation, and lighting.
Juliana Cardon is ready to graduate in Spring 2022 in Landscape Management. She started her college studies in the green industry by taking a landscape design class because it sounded cool. She loves plants and learning the science behind everything we do. Her creative side is satisfied by designing beautiful landscapes. Juliana grew up in Minnesota. When she was a young child, she was in a General Mills/Chex cereal commercial. When asked where she thought she would be in 5 years, she is confident in her answers. She loves winter and would love to own a home, especially one that could use some renovating. That home will have a big garden with cut flowers and vegetables. Besides gardening, she loves backpacking/hiking, baking sourdough bread, and making kombucha.
Noah Stoner will graduate with a degree in Landscape Management and he’s eyeing the possibility of continuing his studies to get a master’s degree in landscape architecture.Initially, when he was trying to decide what he wanted to do with his life, he knew he wanted something exciting, a career/job that presented him with something different every day.Noah likes to build things and loves the challenge of problem-solving issues in landscapes.A summer job, when he was younger, in commercial landscape maintenance piqued his interest.In five years, he expects to be living somewhere in the eastern U.S. and working in the green industry.We found out he’s been playing the violin since he was 5 years old.He also plays the piano and is classically trained.In his free time, he is up for playing any sport or game.His favorite is ultimate frisbee.
About Our Internships
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.
