Luxury condominium courtyard in St. Lous Park, Minnesota

The courtyard design at Excelsior & Grand apartments was dysfunctional and unkempt. The apartment managers were looking for more usable space for the tenants. Additionally, the space had to be inviting to tenants who have patios or balconies overlooking the courtyard….a beautiful space, whether walking through or looking down from above.

The project included clearing out everything from plants to lighting to sod. Installation of the grill patios, small garden walls, a small water feature, new night lighting, and irrigation was completed in 2015. Materials were carried out/in by hand. Plantings and refurbishing the main fountain was finished in 2016.

This is an ongoing project, with an upgrade to old materials next on the plan. Southview Design crews maintain the beauty of the space on a regular basis.

I can’t say enough about how pleased we are with Southview's advice, their work, and their follow up. The quality of their work is excellent as is their communication.
