River Heights Outdoor Solutions was founded in 2007 out of a small garage in south Minneapolis and has grown into a full-service landscape design/build company. Since our inception, River Heights has put quality and customer satisfaction above all else. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to make sure that our clients are satisfied with every aspect of their project. 

Conveniently located in the south metro, River Heights services the entire Twin Cities area from commercial property maintenance to residential landscape design and install. We have the knowledge and skill to tackle any landscape project.

If you can dream it, we can build it. 


Nick Marsden


With over 20 years of experience in the landscape industry, Nick is our resident expert on everything. When Nick is not managing crews and making sure everything runs smoothly, you can find him relaxing at home with his family, shooting hoops, or raising chickens.


Gabe Long

Landscape Manager

Gabe is a master craftsman at all things landscape. Square edges and happy customers is what he is all about. Even outside of work, you can always find him tinkering on a project. 


Ryan Callahan

Construction Manager

Ryan knows his way around a tape measure and comes to River Heights with decades of experience in the construction industry. When not ripping fence boards or fastening pergolas, you can find him coaching youth sports or catching the latest Twins or Wild games. 


Joe Van den Berghe

Maintenance Manager

With 10+ years of experience in all things lawn care, Joe is our resident grass guru.  His low impact approach and experience shows through in the perfectly manicured sites he maintains. Joe can take your property from waking it up in the spring, to making sure it's ready for the winter and everything in between.   When not making sure your landscape is in tip top shape, you can find Joe out cruising back country roads on his motorcycle.


Chad Folstad

Lead Landscape Designer

Chad is the Lead Designer for RHOS. After receiving his degree in Fine Arts from Minneapolis College of Art and Design, he decided he wanted to put his creative skills to use in the landscape design world. Chad has spent that last 15 years crafting exciting residential designs within the Twin Cities metro.  Blending client desires and vision with industry leading design techniques, Chad is able to guide clients to the best solution for their home. In his free time, he is an avid cyclist and vintage motor-head.


Maria Noga

Landscape Designer

Maria came to our company as a graduate from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Environmental Design. Before landing in the design world, she worked in the field of horticulture and plant science. At RHOS, Maria works closely with clients, listening to their visions, and creating designs that reflect those needs, while overseeing the design process all the way through the completion of construction. When not sketching ideas on paper she enjoys hiking, antique hunting, and hanging out with her two cats.

Lindsey keeps our accounts in order, the lights on, and bills paid. When she's not keeping us all in line, she's busy running our outdoor storage lot. Lindsey enjoys pickleball, camping, and traveling with Nick and their three daughters.
