This stone fire pit is the focal point in this mountainous landscape located in Parker. With a mountain stream, flagstone patio and large granite boulders, this landscape encompasses all four elements of Earth, Water, Air & Fire.
This naturalistic landscape provides an oasis from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With large boulders and colorful plantings integrated into the flagstone patio gives the feeling of being transplanted into theRocky Mountains. The custom water feature adds a sense of tranquility as the soothing sound of rushing water washes the day away.
An outdoor fire place is a good way to warm up any landscape. Fire features not only allow you to enjoy your back yard late into the evening but also extends your enjoyment into fall and early spring. The custom reclaimed wood mantle in this picture came from a hundred year old barn in Telluride. Real stone and hand hewn mantel work well together to add a very rustic feel to this landscape. Our designer integrated a large accent boulder on the left side of this fire feature as an extension of the hearth and looks as if it’s been there for a thousand years!
The bright red stucco wall in this contemporary courtyard really brings a lot of flare to this project located in the hip north Denver Highlands neighborhood. Masonry walls were used to create a sense of enclosure and privacy. The house has folding glass doors that meld the line between indoors and outdoors, really making this courtyard an extension of the home. Low voltage lighting enhances any project and can be enjoyed any time of year, weather inside or out. Custom artwork, a Japanese lantern and water feature really pull this landscape together!
One of our favorite projects this summer came from a back yard in North Cherry Hills. A modern and upscale approach is easier said than done when considering condensed or tight spaces. So how do you broaden the effect on the viewer, yet keep it clean? Start with the senses- as humans we’re naturally drawn to the elements. In this case we used a sky fountain water feature to trickle over some home grown Colorado river rocks. Feel the tranquility? Well just hold on to that zen while the pour in place concrete fire pit crackles in the background. Suddenly that unattended corner of your backyard becomes a personal sanctuary.
So kick back and relax… if your toes catch fire, extinguish them promptly. You can thank us later.
The beauty of a water feature can provide soothing sounds, cooler surrounding temperatures, and a natural draw to promote relaxation. For this South Denver Mayfair neighborhood project we used 20 tons of strategically placed boulders to not only create a places to dangle your toes in these hot August summers, but a private backyard ecosystem that hits all the senses at once. We designed a meandering pathway and lighting to lend this feature a setting to explore; day or night.

Bringing your old backyard landscape up to date with modern design will not only raise your property value; but can also add hints of texture, pattern, and a clean geometric look giving a touch of comfort and class to any property.
This particular project from South Denver showcases a prime example on how Mexican beach pebbles and custom concrete steppers give a smooth streamlined lead into the lawn area, complimented by a 90º partition and raised deck. This gives a subtle, yet multi-dimensional transition from the propane fire pit to the main patio.
Did I mention patterns and congruent shapes are known to sooth the mind? So just relax….. give us a call for a fair and square estimate on your future landscaping needs.
Thinking about replacing those cracked and worn concrete stairs; or maybe just creating an alternative entrance pathway?
This project from North Denver consisting of a four tier twisting flagstone stairway exemplifies the beauty of natural stone in an urban landscape. We used large accent boulders and river rock to harmoniously draw together the organic approach taken here. Once the foliage begins to mature, this lush corridor will become a wonderful first and last impression for any home or garden.
Here in Colorado we like to take full advantage of our outdoor living spaces. This is a beautiful example how to compliment your home and garden by creating a transition between the two spaces. This raised flagstone patio feels much more like an extension of the house because of the overhead arbor and surrounding seat walls. We have enhanced the atmosphere and ultimately tied in the indoor/ outdoor experience by the presence of a water feature that also serves as a focal point for the dining area.
Whether entertaining dinner guests with an outdoor kitchen, or just enjoying your summer evenings; you’ll find a new favorite place to gather and enjoy our 300 days of sunshine in comfort and style.
Here’s perfect example on how easily art integrates and lends and extra dimension to any backyard landscape. This newly finished residential project from the Washington Park area included a beautifully custom designed iron plate art piece. The piece hangs from a small redwood arbor accented by calming tones of a blue flagstone wall and patio. Can’t wait to return for another image once the plants have fully matured.
