Some of our favorite backyard swimming pool designs from past seasons.
This LEED-silver home in Minneapolis Minnesota is an example of what can be accomplished with the marriage of green technology and creative ideas. This project won an MNLA award in the “Sustainable Environment” category for the sustainable landscape design which uses boulder walls, terraces, rain gardens and a permeable paver system to capture 98% of the runoff from the roof and other hard surfaces. The level areas and gardens hold the water long enough for it to penetrate the ground.
The award-winning landscaping features low-maintenance grasses, shrubs, and trees. Reducing the lawn area by 50% and installing zone-specific irrigation minimizes the amount of water necessary to keep the landscape healthy. A special type of permeable paver system was installed over a unique, fast-draining base. Mature trees (18-feet high) reduce heating and cooling costs by providing shade in summer, and protection from wind in winter.
Southview Design can create a sustainable plan for your landscape. With the right elements, your landscape will have a positive impact on water quality, energy efficiency, and the community.

These homeowners love their unique home. Unfortunately, their existing outdoor spaces were inadequate for entertaining.
Designers and crews had to carve out a portion of a hill to create a level space for a swimming pool and hot tub in this backyard.
This shady backyard in the forest has it all: a pool and patio, colorful flowers, a fire pit, and a bubbling water feature.
Created with both privacy and fun in mind, this Eden Prairie backyard features an in-ground trampoline, putting green, semi-enclosed outdoor living room, paver patio, and cedar deck.
We've worked with these clients for several years. For this project, they called us in to design and install a new patio off the kitchen and screen porch, as well as install outdoor lighting, and redoing the steps and retaining wall.
A regulation horseshoe pitch attracts neighbors like a magnet to this Minneapolis MN side yard. The landscaping includes two patios and a large seat wall for spectators.
