Stone is strength - Capture it
The strength and longevity of hard materials anchor the environment and define the architecture of the landscape. Flagstone, boulders and brick pavers complement the softer elements of your garden.
- Patios, terraces and courtyards
- Driveways and walkways
- Outdoor cooking areas
- Walls and pool decks
- Outdoor fireplaces
Stonework is detailed and precise. It requires thoughtful design and craftsmanship to withstand the test of time.
Light is energy - Seize it
The sun's rays piercing through an aspen grove or beauty subtly uncovered in the darkness - natural or manmade, all light is elemental in the landscape.
- Night illuminations
- Water reflections
- Holiday decor
Low-voltage fixtures ensure long-lived, energy-efficient outdoor lighting for aesthetic and security purposes across your property.
Earth is life - Treasure it
The textures of plants, their colors, scents and structures gently mold a landscape into an outdoor space, inviting alfresco entertainment and enriching home life. Strong memories are imprinted in a garden.
- Sensible lawns
- Perennial gardens
- Annual beds and containers
- Xeriscape concepts
Drip irrigation, wood mulch and sound horticultural practices protect your landscape and keep it healthy for years to come.
Water is precious - Respect it
Water is a primordial element of nature, deep in the Rocky Mountains or right in your own backyard. The movement and melody of water will whisper that you are home.
- Water gardens
- Koi fishponds
- Waterfalls and streams
Recirculating water gardens and efficient irrigation systems will limit water consumption, while giving you the pleasure of a lush garden.
