If there's one thing that distinguishes Southview Design from other landscape design and construction companies - it's the beautiful design and flawless construction of our patios and hardscapes. That's why our hardscapes are backed by an industry-leading warranty.
Southview Design's landscaping crews are trained by professionals with 20 years or more of experience building hardscapes. Translation: our crews know their stuff. Whether you prefer the elegance of natural stone, the timelessness of classic brick, or the practical beauty of concrete pavers, we'll help you build the walkway or patio of your dreams.
Proper placement and sizing of your patio will mean the difference between having a relaxing area you will use regularly and for most of the year or one hardly used because it’s cramped and uncomfortable. The size of the patio should be based on the number of people who will be using it on a regular basis. There should be room for table/chairs, a grill area, and extra seating.
The shape and size are determined by the elements on your wish list as well as where you put it and how much space you have to work with.
A Southview Design landscape designer or landscape architect can help determine what would work best and still fit your budget.
Your perfect outdoor living space begins with a simple conversation. Let’s talk about your landscaping project!
