Project wins 2022 Landscape Award from MNLA

Edina Backyard Wins Award from MNLA


Southview Designs's Intimate Patio and Pergola has won a 2022 Landscape Award from the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association. The MNLA judges entries on a comprehensive list of criteria by a panel of practicing professionals in the fields of landscape education, landscape design, landscape installation, landscape architecture, and horticulture.

Before construction, this Edina backyard was nothing but a deteriorating screen porch and an old concrete patio covered in Astro Turf. The clients envisioned their back yard becoming the center of outdoor activity as part of the larger remodel of the house. The outdoor living and entertaining space can now accommodate individual and small groups in relative privacy, while the style and design of the landscape reduces the feeling of a small space through harmonious interaction with the house.

Cut and patterned bluestone was chosen as a stable and durable material that reinforces the intended character of the space.

A custom fiberglass pergola and solid cedar fencing were used to create a sense of enclosure.

The client wanted a large, raised vegetable garden. The plants amongst the vegetables and herbs were selected for their visual strength and moderate maintenance.
