Whether you a Colorado Native or a recent transplant you are by now well aware of the extreme changes in temperatures we have here in our beautiful state. Despite the fact, we have colder weather our love for the outdoors does not sway! There are many ways to continue to enjoy our outdoor living and fun but here at Mile High Landscaping, we love our outdoor fire pits and fireplaces!!!
Regardless of the outside temperatures our Mile High Landscaping’s outdoor fire pits and fireplaces are a perfect solution for the continued use of the outdoor spaces and living areas. Situated into a new outdoor living space or added into an existing patio area, fire pits and fireplaces are a great way to bring family and friends together and or to create a warm and intimate space to relax. Our custom designed/fabricated fire pits and fireplaces can not only be used as roaring bonfires for much-needed heat and warmth but they can also be used at low burn to roast marshmallows for smores, add intimate lighting and or to create a unique and fun outdoor dining experience.
No Matter if you have a much more traditional or more modern contemporary style home, Mile High Landscaping can create the perfect fire element that will be both functional and aesthetically matching to fit your project. Most of our fire elements are configured with home fed natural gas so there is never any worry of running out of wood or having an empty propane tank. This allows you, your family and guests to enjoy your new fire element with without the concern of stock wood, flying sparks, cleaning ashes or replacing the propane tank each and every time you want to use it.
So the questions are………what is your fire element going to look like and when do you want to start the planning? Mile High Landscaping is here to help and we look forward to creating your new outdoor living space!

Our motto, “Transforming the Everyday into the Extraordinary”, is a reflection of the complex and impeccable work we do every day. Our team is constantly pushing the limits in design and construction to create one of a kind projects for our clients.
As our projects have become increasingly more complex and unique we have relied on 3d renderings to portrait our design intent to clients and even our team of fabricators. We have found it to be a great tool for not only showing our design intent but also as a way to help the client experience the space before it is built.
We have found great reward in seeing our concept models turn into built projects!
As our 2016 season is off to an incredible start we are proud to announce the launch of our updated website! Our website now features larger format media to show our unique work and incredible outdoor living spaces. 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.
