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.”

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!
