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.
