2021 Award Winners

Slope Be Gone Wins Award from MNLA

Southview Design Honored for Excellence

Southview Design was recently honored with a Landscape Award by the Minnesota Nursery & Landscape Association. The residential project, Slope Be Gone, first required major regrading to create a level surface. Designer Alyson Landmark then executed a thoughtful plan to solve this family's original backyard concerns.

Before: Tons of earth was removed in order to level this backyard.

After: Elegant stone retaining wall, hedges for privacy, and a lawn perfect for a family to run around on.

Regrading the Lawn and Timeless Design Elements

The attention to detail and amount of work put into this project didn't go unnoticed by the judges.

"The transformation is stunning. The attention to details, like the trellis, really help to make this an award-winning project."
"Gutsy move to lower the entire yard. Simple but elegant terrace."
"This project is clean, simple, timeless and classy. I like it. The use of stone materials is nice. The way the yard was transformed to be more usable and fit the needs of the family are excellent. Especially how the yard was re-leveled with the retaining wall to make a usable space."
