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 ‘Nature’ in the Residential Landscape

IMG_3038A 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.

Mile High Landscaping Custom Built Wall Fountain

This masterpiece of a water fountain was custom made for our client. The back of the house faces a busy street and we wanted to do something special to screen out the traffic and create some privacy for our clients to relax and enjoy their outdoor living space. The rustic and elegant design for the wall thought to create a private nook with small arched windows to let light into the space and create interest beyond the wall. A simple but elegant fountain has water falling out of a copper pipe into a basin that cascades down into a larger fluted basin where water trickles out to a patio level pool. The water falling creates an orchestra of relaxing bubbling sound. The browns and tans of the background tile contrast in color and texture with the strong balance of the stucco wall. As mists of water coats the flagstone patio, a shiny sheen appears and gives the flagstone a golden color. Glazed ceramic garden pots from Creative Living give life to plants and add smooth shapes to the corner making for a balanced view.

Outdoor Grill on the Patio

Outdoor Kitchen with concrete cook top

The openness of this yard has great views of the golf course. It was lacking a place to take advantage of the view and large yard. Mile High Landscaping designed and built this with dimension cut flagstone mortared to a new patio. One of the main points was to incorporate an outdoor kitchen into the patio. The BBQ station is large enough to entertain while cooking up some nice steaks. The counter top is a custom and unique smooth concrete top found in many high-end homes today. The entire kitchen was coated in tan stucco to match the house’s exterior. This space is fantastic for entertaining family and guests.

We created this relaxing oasis in Castle Pines, by using these meandering slab stairs to lead to this cozy outdoor space. Natural stone stairs are great accent for your yard or they can be used as an entrance to your home. If you are serious about incorporating fire in to your outdoor living, consider building a permanent stone fire pit, it will instantly take your backyard to a new level! Outdoor stone fire pits are unique, they combine elegance and durability. This flagstone patio with a built in fireplace will allow the home owners to enjoy the warm weather, relax after a long day at work, enjoy a glass of wine, or read a book.
