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.”

Bright Colors and Interesting Textures in a Modern Landscape

Fire Feature and Art TrellisA modern slick finish concrete patio with two levels helps to create a separate area and contrast in this small Denver yard. An ultra-modern gas fire pit, from Creative Living, colored in powder coated fire-engine red really makes this space “pop” with contrasting colors and rectangular shapes. While enjoying the warmth of the fire feature as you gaze out into the yard we wanted to break-up the existing wood privacy fence with unique steel art trellis designs, also powder coated in the same color as the fire feature to tie in the two elements to create balance. The LED up-lights add textures and shadows from the custom steel trellis against the wood fence at night to make the art screen create this soft hue to the rear of the property. The planting beds further add contrast and texture to the landscape through the use of multicolored smooth textured river cobble laid throughout the mulch areas. Privacy, warmth, color, and textures all brought together to form this superb landscape design/build by Mile High Landscaping.
