USE THE SLIDER TO SEE BEFORE AND AFTER

Minneapolis, MN, November 15, 2018 — Southview Design, a Minneapolis Landscape Design Build firm, has earned a 2018 NARI-MN CotY Silver Award in the Residential Landscape Design/Outdoor Living $60,000 and Over category.

Contractors from around the Twin Cities vie for CotY Awards each year. Judging is based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, and degree of difficulty by an impartial panel of industry experts.

The classic backyard and swimming pool was designed by Sean Flaherty. "It's nice to be recognized for such a fun and challenging project the clients thoroughly enjoy," he says.

The lower level of the home had been renovated to include sliding windows that open to an outside bar top, gaming couches, and a large flat-screen TV. Now, the outside joins the inside as a complete entertainment space. It has become the destination for the homeowners’ children and their friends.

Preserving that privacy topped the wish list, along with a 9-foot-deep diving pool with seating at the shallow end and a salt filtration system instead of chlorine, a hot tub for 8 people, a gas fire table, seating areas, a basketball hoop poolside, audio and night lighting.

Each year, NARI-MN presents CotY awards to members who have demonstrated outstanding work through their projects. This is the highest form of recognition by industry leaders and peers.

"This recognition is highly deserved," says Chris Clifton, the president and CEO of Southview Design. "Sean’s ability to transform a client’s vision into a stunning reality is second to none. He's a very important part of our team."
