Who needs a vacation? In the last few years, homeowners recognized the advantage of creating their own backyard resort. Let's face it. “Stay-cation” is now a part of our vocabulary. While most people think a swimming pool is just the ticket, more families are looking at spaces for of all sorts of outdoor games. Limited space? Create a driveway basketball court from brick or concrete pavers, like the one we designed and built in St. Paul, MN.
We have all seen tennis courts, basketball courts and trampolines at the neighbors. And backyard hockey rinks are a favorite here in Minnesota. But consider adding one of these less common sports or games to your backyard – chess boards, horseshoes, putting greens, bocce ball, volleyball, shuffleboard, or badminton. No reservations necessary.
You Want a Piece of Me? Who can resist a little friendly, family competition? Your house will be THE place to be in the neighborhood. A ton of fun, and right out the back door!

Designers overcame several unique challenges to squeeze a deck, pool, and patio with fireplace onto this compact lot in Excelsior, MN.
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.
A backyard for the young and young-at-heart. This design incorporates a pool, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, pergola, natural stone, and multiple patios.
Nature provided this riverfront home with a stunning backdrop, but the yard lacked sufficient space for family gatherings. This classic design features a fully fenced swimming pool, hot tub, paver patio and low maintenance plantings.
Did someway say curb appeal? Stunning paver driveway, front entry, and swimming pool in North Oaks.
This Apple Valley family called Southview Design with a specific request. "Help transform our overgrown front yard into something beautiful and low maintenance”. With a whopping 14-foot drop from the door to the street, the front yard caused all sorts of problems for the homeowners and their guests.
