2023 Award Winners

Excelsior Crossings Receives NALP Silver Award of Excellence


Southview Design's Excelsior Crossings has been awarded a Silver Award of Excellence by the National Association of Landscape Professionals.

The landscape at Excelsior Crossings is a lush and verdant oasis. What sets Excelsior Crossings apart is its serene courtyard, adorned with winding pathways, ponds, and fountains. For the busy professionals who work on-site, the courtyard is a special place and a welcome pause from their daily responsibilities.

Southview Design maintains the exterior of the campus and the shared courtyard. The maintenance plan includes regular mowing, weeding, pruning, sweeping, turf applications, irrigation, and more. Weekly site inspections are an opportunity to correct any imperfections or issues that may arise. In all, the property is maintained by a four-person maintenance team, two-person garden team, two-person irrigation team, three-person enhancement team, and one fertilizer-horticulture expert.


The National Association of Landscape Professionals represents an industry of approximately 1 million landscape, lawn care, irrigation, and tree care professionals. Through national advocacy campaigns, the association is growing the industry and its workforce. NALP offers its members professional development through education, networking, and training, certification and accreditation programs.
