Big Things in a Small Package

“We all live in Colorado for a reason,” says Will Hyde of Mile High Landscaping. “We get 300 days of sun, and Colorado people are outdoor people. We create outdoor living, so clients can spend as much time outdoors as possible.” A perfect example is this 300-square-foot Northfield backyard, where Mile High created an entire extra living space that can be enjoyed threequarters of the year (and, with the uplighting and built-in architectural features,

YARD WORK Clockwise from top: An adjustable fire pit, an extra-large planter and a modern water feature helped turn this backyard into an provides great views even when it’s snowy). Here, a few of the highlights: PATIO: Concrete steppers, surrounded by Mexican beach pebbles, lead past a fauxgrass patch of lawn to a concrete patio “living room,” one of three seating areas in the yard (there’s also an elevated dining area and a smaller seating area adjacent to the house). The patio is separated into four quadrants by controlled joints, which help prevent cracking in Colorado’s climate. FIRE FEATURE: The centerpiece of the living room is a fire feature stocked by Mile High that comes in three sizes and finishes. It’s fueled by 250,000 BTUs of natural gas, so the flame can go from 2 inches up to 2 to 3 feet adjusted by a key valve on the side. “If you have it all the way up,” Hyde says, “you can really feel it if it’s chilly outside.” WATER FEATURE: A fabricated, powder-coated steel water feature contains a C channel that ties into the modern architecture of the house. The up lighting in the basin creates a “kaleidoscope of light, “Hyde says, “so you get this dancing effect of the light on the surface of the water and onto the cascade of water. It’s a beautiful, constantly moving feature.” Because it has a “clean pour,” he says, “it makes a crisp, clean sound, like Mother Nature’s light jazz station.” PLANTER: To add interest to a blank garage wall, Mile High added a large planter filled with tree-form lilacs that “bloom like crazy and are so fragrant,” Hyde says. The adjacent gate leads out to the back driveway. FENCE: An existing cedar fence, put in by the home builder, provides screening from a thoroughfare behind the house, but Mile High added uplighted aspens to create more interest. “We always say that lighting doubles the value of a project because you enjoy it not only during the day but at night, too,” Hyde says. “A space like this is gorgeous in the winter, as well, when you’re inside and the snow is falling.”

Outdoor Living – An Extension of the Home

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

Creating Shade & Privacy with a Custom Modern Trellis

15Jan13 Augusto Finished Day 014An 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.
