Some of our favorite backyard swimming pool designs from past seasons.
As anyone with a busy, stressful job will tell you – when they come home, it should be to a relaxing space, preferably outdoors. These Edina homeowners wanted a place to greet neighbors in the front yard, places to entertain in the back, and a spa they could use year-round.
Potted plants and a semi-private courtyard connect public and private space.
In the front yard, one of Southview's landscape architects designed a welcoming courtyard/front entry. Just large enough for a table, a couple of chairs, a small fountain, and flowers, the courtyard is separated from the street by a low mortared limestone wall. The space hints at privacy but invites the neighbors in for conversation and evening refreshments.
Before: Overgrown and dying, the back yard lacked any entertainment space other than the screened porch and a small patio.
After: A complete renovation of the gardens, a gas fire pit patio and seat wall.

Winding path to relaxation
Extending the garden across the winding path to just behind the garage, the existing koi pond was refurbished and a hot tub nestled in nearby but still within view of the fire pit to give the back yard a secret-garden-feel.
Boulder lined Koi pond naturalistically blends into the landscape.
The perfect place to start the day with a cup of coffee, or end it with a glass of wine.
A casual bluestone patio with two Adirondack chairs and a small table provides a comfortable spot to sit while the dog burns off some energy in the spacious expanse of lawn at the back of the yard.
Gas fire pit, circular patio, and seat wall – all made from tumbled bluestone.
Your perfect outdoor living space begins with a simple conversation. Let’s talk about your landscaping project!
