We encourage you to explore through our projects and consider us for your next project or share the site with your family and friends who are looking for their next landscape!
Bring the indoors out with this unique Denver outdoor living space. Mile High Landscaping created this outdoor living space from the deck to the roof above. With easy access from the home out to the grilling area which transitions into a seating area with a wood burning fire place and outdoor television to catch the game while entertaining your friends and family. On movie night, the custom outdoor curtains can be drawn to block out exterior lights while eating popcorn and watching a family favorite movie. To extend the outdoor season we installed a heater above to take the chill away when those cooler temperatures arrive in Castle Pines. The outdoor custom built fire place is the focal point and built using a rustic wood mantle balanced above the stucco and stone veneer fascia. The cantilevered roof was engineered and then installed by the Mile High Landscaping experts and has a beautiful cedar wood grain board that adds warmth to the space
An outdoor living space is always a great addition to any property but its functionality can easily be hindered by an intense summer heat or lack of privacy. We have developed a functional but unique trellis with a contemporary motif to address these issues. This custom trellis is comprised of a few basic materials but has a clean finish and has become a focal point in this outdoor dining space. The shape redefines the traditional form of a trellis and is designed for privacy and UV protection.
This contemporary landscape in Sloans Lake has a unique outdoor living space that is defined by its large modern concrete patio and custom metal arbor. The juxtaposition of the arbor’s steel frame with the wood joists creates a distinct look that matches the modern context of the homes architecture. The black industrial look of the steel is a great accent against the light concrete. As the plants mature their dark red and green tones will soften the texture of the space and enclose its open walls.
The Colorado Home and Garden Show is an annual event we take pride in attending as an opportunity to display our unique outdoor living accessories and custom artwork. While we operate as a full service landscape design and construction company we also specialize in custom outdoor art. Our custom metal art plates are truly one of a kind pieces that can be used in many applications and can transform any space. The Gabion Benches are functional pieces with a contemporary appeal and an interesting balance of materials. The best way to add color and texture to your patio is with our porcelain planters from Creative Living Interior & Exterior decor.
This backyard has a naturalistic motif with a palette of earth tone colors and a lush, diverse plant selection. The one of a kind water feature adds visual character as well as an audible backdrop for the space. An evening in this landscape is enjoyable as users can cozy up to the large custom fire feature while feeling the warmth of the surrounding garden that is highlighted with our discrete lighting. The featured lighting of the gardens adds a unique color to the evening landscape and brightens the night. Aside from creating a unique visual effect in the landscape the lighting is simply creating a space that can be enjoyed comfortably late into the night.
A dry Creek bed not only adds a unique character to the residential landscape but it can be a functional asset to your property. If designed correctly, a creek bed will promote positive drainage from your residence and can become a distinct feature. Our unique method of using a variety of river rock and boulder sizes mimics the natural formation of a riverbed while our blend of groundcovers grow into the space to soften the threshold into the surrounding landscape. Planting the riverbed with grasses creates a vertical element with diverse textures and the use of mixed shrubs along the bank defines the space while adding a color contrast against the stone bed.
This contemporary patio is a simple but inviting space that is defined by its smooth finish concrete and dynamic evening colors. The smooth finish of the concrete becomes a flat canvas which allows the furniture to define its own space. The step down patio becomes a space of its own that pops with the red fire feature acting as a focal point. As the sun goes down on this space the LED spot lights turn on to add a textured backlighting for evening enjoyment. The mix of rock, cobble, and mulch creates a naturalistic and diverse texture to the planting beds which otherwise would get lost in a monotony of barks and fibers.
Concrete is a unique material that is constantly evolving in its applications. It can become an intrinsic element in the landscape that is simple but elegant. We use concrete as a sculpture in the landscape that can be free standing or functional. The basic knee wall becomes a vertical element and backdrop to accent the color and texture of these grasses. The dark charcoal color is bold but not intrusive and as the eye draws closer the detail of a wood grain finish becomes apparent with added interest.
An outdoor dining room is a great way to relax outdoors and enjoy a morning coffee or a dinner with the family. This contemporary getaway is designed to be a functional but social space for all gatherings. The space is defined with a large cedar trellis that provides ample shade over a smooth concrete patio. The clean and smooth finish of the stainless steel bar provides a contemporary look with easy maintenance and clean up. The use of our custom metal trellis screens provides an anchor for plants to climb and add a soft colorful texture to the space.
