Wow! Those gentlemen are good! Victor and his crew were efficient and tidy. Thank you, the yard looks great.
— G.F.
We love the work that your crew did and the tree is spectacular. We loved the care Jose and his workers did to clean up and make everything look finished- like planting the boulder in its new home, barking the disturbed areas, raking the grass to make it stand up again, and fixing the berm where the truck had to drive over. There’s no way for anyone to know that a major disturbance just occurred. Thank you all so much for a very professional and beautiful job.
— W.E.
We are thrilled with the exceptional services which Columbine Design provided from start to finish of our comprehensive re-landscaping project. Julie first, and then Kim, created plans which remedied long-standing issues with the hardscape portion of the work. The crew carried out the design to perfection. Kim and Julie then produced a landscaping blueprint which shows our property off to its best advantage. The entire team work seamlessly to deal with matters as they arise.
— C.A.
Greg and I love the plan—it’s perfect. When Greg saw it he really gushed about how you really nailed it with the design and plantings. You captured what we were wanting and thinking!
— N.Z.
Thank you! The pavers look great!!

Your crew also did the most heart warming and generous sod replacement during the placement of the pavers.

And thank YOU Julie for your thoughtful and brilliant design of our space. The more Terri and I sit and spend time in the yard the more we have come to appreciate all that you did! The space is uplifting and balanced and calming.
— Z.B.
Wow. I totally love this patio, the design, the plants - it’s what I wanted and makes this space so useful now. Thank you so much! I so appreciate your creativity and design. LOVE this!
— K.W.
I want to again gush how much Terri and I are thrilled and delighted with the transformation of our front yard. Your design is brilliant and the skill of your crew immense. Just got home and it looks amazing! The plantings are perfect! I LOVE the trees! Thanks for the brilliant and beautiful front yard!!!!!
— Z.B.
It gives me great pleasure to express my appreciation of the kinds of work Freddy Hernandez’s two gardeners did in the planting of a number of plants for me. Although I didn’t anticipate sending you another letter of appreciation so soon after the beginning of the gardening season, I feel compelled to share my enthusiasm for the beautiful work Oscar and Hector did for me.

It’s obvious that Oscar and Hector have been well supervised by Freddy, for the work they did for me was extraordinary. I love to see people who embrace their work in the way they do; obviously they love their work. Both Oscar and Hector, and indirectly, Freddy, should be congratulated for doing such a splendid job for me. The two gardeners were always willing to do more than what I asked of them; after finishing up their tasks, they were always eager to make sure that their work met my expectations. They are a real credit to themselves and to your whole gardening organization.
— J.L.
The work is fantastic - the terrace is precise to a pin. Very impressive.
— F.M
We are completely happy with our new yard! We were perfectly pleased with the management of the foreman, the crew has an excellent work ethic, and they are all very pleasant. Kim was very helpful, guiding us to the correct plan and offered thoughtful and professional advice. Thank you for fostering a kind, supportive, and creative work environment for these artists.
— D.T.
Freddy, Mario, and Miguel continue to serve me splendidly as reflected in their eagerness to respond to my gardening needs, always doing even more than what I’ve asked of them, and after finishing every task, are always eager to make sure that what I’ve asked of them met my expectations.

It’s obvious that the three of them view their gardening endeavors with much pride, which is reflected in their obvious pleasure of having done what was asked of them in a thorough and comprehensive way.

You are to be congratulated for having such worthy and responsive gardeners, Mario and Miguel as part of your gardening work crew and of course, Freddy. They’re the best.
— J.L.
Freddy and his fantastic team worked diligently to correct mistakes. They were not only extremely attentive to my concerns, but persisted until their own standards of excellence were met. On top of this, Freddy and each individual on his team are a pleasure to work with.
— N.L.
Columbine Design did a complete redesign of our front yard 3 years ago and we hired them again this past year to do the same in our backyard. We had some definite challenges with the slope on one side of our yard, but they were able to make it work well. Myles Tangalin was our designer and he is AWESOME. His ideas were great and we love sitting on our deck looking at all the beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers. My neighbors even texted me when it was complete to say how much they enjoy sitting on THEIR deck looking at our yard! It was an investment but one we are happy we did now that it’s complete!
— D.R.
I can’t tell you how much we enjoy the backyard since you re-did it! I spend every moment out there I can, and I love it. We love, love, love the yard. Thanks for all your work.
— D.D.
We value your support in keeping our home in fine working order.
— D.T.
Thank you for all your hard work - the yard looks beautiful!
— T.S.
Your crew did an outstanding job!
— L.F.
Greg Banks and his staff at Columbine Design did an amazing job on restoring my sprinkler system. I had several other companies come out to repair and all they wanted to do is install a whole new service at a cost of over $5000, Columbine design fixed my existing sprinkler system for just over $1000. I also had them do some landscaping design and install. The price was great and the install was done in a very timely manner and looks great.
— J.S.
Columbine Design always provides top notch professional service for our landscaping needs.
— S.G.
I’m very pleased with the quality of service.
— P.D.
Staff were on time and resolved my issues to my satisfaction.
— D.P.
Very professional and performed the work very efficiently. Helped a lot with the planning stage of the project. I would highly recommend this firm to others.
— H.B.
Love the new path and spotlights ~ they were recommended and they are beautiful. Freddy and crew were on time and work was done meticulously and efficiently. Freddy responds to emails quickly and makes great suggestions with no pressure. Truly enjoyed working with Columbine Design and will contact them for future design and landscaping needs.
— L.P.
Very professional and service oriented.
— A.A.
I can’t say enough about what a delight is has been to work with Columbine Design. Myles listened to our vision, observed our space, and created a back yard that was beyond our expectations. With over 1/2 an acre to gut and shape, he developed a backyard plan that looks great now and will continue to evolve in the years to come.
— A.K.
Working with the Columbine Design team was a great experience. They installed our Sensory Garden at the STAR Center, a treatment facility for children with Sensory Processing Disorder. The Sensory Garden has been a successful addition for use during treatment which has allowed children to explore their senses through various gardening activities. The entire team was professional and worked hard to make sure everything was completed on time, efficiently and within budget. We are very thankful for Columbine Design’s dedication in helping to make our Sensory Garden dreams come true. We would highly recommend them- any job big or small.
— S.C.
Working with Myles and the whole Columbine team was wonderful. The design, installation and upkeep have been top notch.
— N.W.
As I sat on my front porch last evening near sunset, watching the mountains turn different shades of purple and the birds roost in one of the two spruce tree by twos and threes for the evening, a hummingbird came by several times to sample the butterfly bush two feet in front of me. I was left thinking that God did good work in his creation and made me thankful for your efforts to help beautify my property so I could enjoy it.
— M.M.
Freddy, I am so pleased with how beautiful everything looks in the backyard!

Your crew was great. Don and I were most impressed with your leadership and the mutual respect. Mario and Pepilo, I think Don said is his name, worked hard and well and everything looks happy and well placed.

Thank you for a job well done.
— E.O.
I was sitting in my car in front of the house waiting for the rain to let up when your ‘partner in crime’ came by to install the irrigation to the tree. My wife and I are very pleased with the work performed by you and your team. We really appreciate the work you and your team did for us.
— J.F.
[We] just concluded a meeting on our back patio. What a treat to be able to do some of our work outside in our new surroundings. I absolutely love the changes you designed for our yard. Thanks again!
— N.B.
Greg Banks at Columbine Design worked with us to improve our landscaping and front patio. We found it easy to work with Greg, and he created a design that used our space well. The work on the patio went quickly and was done very well. Greg and his team listened to us and made sure that we were satisfied. The costs were as he estimated and there were no surprises. We highly recommend Greg and Columbine Design.
— S.J.
FANTASTIC
— J.H.
Columbine Design has designed and maintained my yard and irrigation needs for the for the past two years upon our move to Colorado. Their complimentary and very thorough evaluation led me to becoming a customer. They corrected a major drainage problem and have helped with plantings large and small. They are prompt, reliable and help with emergencies. All workers are personable and explain what they will be doing and ask specifically what you would need them to do for you. As a new resident to Colorado, my experiences with Columbine Design have helped me understand and maintain my outdoor area. I highly recommend their company and services.
— D.M.
We have been very impressed with the efficiency and quality of our project in progress!
— A.R.
A great company that has always been fair and responsive to our landscaping needs.
— S.D.
Love your on site guys
— A.S.
Great customer service!
— A.Y.
The best experience. From developing the plan to the completion of all the work it was a joy. Our yard is beautiful and the neighbors remind me every time they go by.
— S.W.
Columbine did a complete makeover of our small courtyard style backyard including design, demo, construction of a 2 level paver patio, pergola, a wood feature wall and final planting with modification to an existing irrigation system. The transformation is incredible! Myles’ beautiful design was carried out by Victor and his team who worked during winter months to complete the hard scape in a very timely manner. A couple of bumps in the road were quickly resolved. I would definitely recommend Columbine Design!
— D.C.
Greg did a beautiful job of planning and drawing up his ideas for both our front and back yards. I wish I had before and after photos — what a stunning difference his ideas and the Columbine Design crew provided. We had hired two other professional landscape companies over the former 8 years we lived at this property and all they brought to the yard was the typical generic ideas you see over and over again. I would hire Columbine Design again without any hesitation.
— E.C.
After a year-long gut-renovation, last summer we needed landscaping and FAST! Myles and Greg got us started, and Myles was put in charge after that. He was very intuitive and sensitive to our needs for a quick remedy, and the need to turn our raw, dirt-filled back yard into a family-friendly area. Professional plans were presented, along with a detailed list of vegetation with photos. It was very helpful for us to envision. Myles worked us into the schedule quickly and we had a great team of professionals. We’re very pleased with the end result!
— D.R.
The yard looks good! Your crews came and finished the spring cleanup and mowed, ect. The yard will be looking great for our open house. Again, thank you, and thank your crews for a job well done. That is one of the things that I like about your company. If I send an e-mail or call your office, you are on it and take care of things. That’s why we continue to renew our contract every year with you.
— C.G.
We had bought a new house that had not had any landscaping done beyond the standard builder grade throw-ins - coneflower, black eyed susans, and some evergreen shrubs. We wanted something that would give real curb appeal and make our yard into an outdoor living space, while also giving us some privacy from the neighbors.

We interviewed a few different landscape design companies and found that Greg Banks and Columbine Design did the best job of listening to and incorporating our ideas. They weren’t the most expensive and they weren’t the cheapest, but we felt they were the best value for our money.

Greg listened and worked with us to understand our vision of what we wanted for our landscaping. His resulting design incorporated our ideas around sound landscape architectural design concepts, that only come from years of training and expertise, and he produced a design that really transformed our space.

When it came time to implement and do the actual work, the Columbine team came out and did their work in a professional, timely and quick manner. Having watched other contractors take forever to implement a landscape project, it was great to see how well the team from Columbine performed. We would recommend them enthusiastically.
— D.U.
At Columbine, you get excellent service with TLC. They were sensitive to my budget and straightforward. It was a pleasant experience and we felt we were in good hands all the way through.
— S.W.
Columbine Design did a great job of turning my very unattractive front yard into a very pleasing xeriscape experience. Though my budget was not big, Greg and his team created a design with details and colors that set my property apart and provided eye appeal year-round. I appreciate how easy the crew was to work with and their dedication to getting it right. I have since moved, and am confident the new front yard significantly enhanced the curb appeal.
— F.T.
Columbine completed our backyard landscape remodel on time and on budget. They took a 40-year old yard, freshened it up, and tailored it to our family’s lifestyle and interests. The construction took only 2 weeks. Our designer, Greg Banks, created a wonderful vision for our backyard. He helped prioritize what would make the most impact in the yard. The construction crew were great to work with and so helpful. We have our dream backyard now, and at a price that was within our budget. The only downside - now my backyard looks so great, I need Columbine to do my front yard!
— D.H.
Columbine transformed an ugly front yard into a stunning xeriscape. Loved the details and colors and how the plants provide color and interest year-round. The crew was easy to work with and Greg Banks was responsive to my wishes and my somewhat limited budget. Overall I had a very good experience and would recommend them.
— L.F.
We asked Greg Banks at Columbine Design to create a cozy back yard for our Denver home on a budget. Greg provided detailed drawings that contained plans for repairing and repositioning a low stone retaining wall, adding in plants and grass, and replacing an ugly sidewalk with brick pavers and extending the size of the patio with matching pavers. The plantings all around the yard were chosen for each location whether it was full sun or shade and even included seasonal color. Each planting area flowed into the next and really seemed to soften the hard lines of an old garage and fence. We were even able to transplant some of our existing mature shrubs and a rose bush to other spots in the yard and yes, they lived! Greg was quite willing to work with us with replacing a couple of the plants that I really didn’t like and I wanted a new tree to face a different direction. We were completely happy and we stayed within our budget. The plants and hardscape all turned out beautifully and were even better the following year. We couldn’t be happier and we would definitely recommend Columbine Design!
— C.I.
We are still thrilled with the yard and how great it looks, even through the winter! We recently had a party with about 50 teenagers over, and while it was cool outside, the yard fire pit was a huge hit with the teenagers to go outside and hang. I’m getting excited for spring to finish up the planting and get out and use the yard more (and earlier!). Working with you was absolutely great, and I’d highly recommend you and Columbine to anyone.
— D.Z.
Every morning I open my blinds to a serene landscape filled with beautifully colored flowers, various green shrubs, and blossoming trees...For all the beauty and happiness you are responsible for, I express our deepest thanks and gratitude...a job well done!
— J.O.
Their [Columbine Design’s] attitude and professionalism is among the best I have experienced from any service company anywhere, regardless of the industry.
— D.B.
They [Columbine Design] are absolutely wonderful. They are Landscape Architects and they deserve every dime they charge. They are very professional, they are doing what they said they are going to do and I am extremely impressed with them.
— D.V.
Columbine Design performed in a professional, yet warm and friendly fashion during the design installation. I could not be happier with the final product. What is more, the process itself was a delight. The Architect was thoughtful, attentive and very responsive to my requests. I felt I got solid, honest treatment throughout. I felt very safe around the installation crew and enjoyed having them here. The end result is an outdoor living area that is all I dreamed of and more!
— L.C.
Just a quick note to let you know that Victor and his crew were out this morning. They did a great job of putting in the replacement plants and also fixing the issues with the hardscape and edging... Victor had some good ideas on how to fix the problems. We are very happy with the work that was done!
— J.G.
A huge thank you for the beautiful poinsettia plant! It was so thoughtful of you to think of all your clients so generously. We have really been enjoying it this holiday. May you have a wonderful holiday and a happy and prosperous new year.
— L.E.
Imagine my surprise when I walked into Country Fair to pick up the poinsettia from your company. I was imagining a small plant; instead I was given a choice of a number of large plants! Thank you for being so generous.
— L.H.
Your crew did a fantastic job with our backyard today! It looks perfectly manicured and beautiful. I wish I had ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures. Nilson knew exactly how to handle everything in our yard...he seriously put my mind at ease right away with his knowledgeable and courteous approach to all my areas of concern (the junipers are shaped the best I’ve ever seen)! I am completely anal about our yard and Columbine Design exceeded my expectations today. For me, that’s so rare to find. Oswaldo made sure several times that I was happy with everything and really demonstrated genuine quality customer service. I asked you bring your ‘A’ team, and you did! Only Mr. T was missing...ha (he probably would have trampled everything)! Thank you for a job really well done. It’s so refreshing to have met people who cared for my yard as if it were their own. Professional all the way, great team!
— L.H.
I wanted to take a quick moment and say how great your quality of work, and more importantly your staff and the customer service we received this summer, was in replacing our yard. Both Josh and Freddy were great! In this day and age it is all about the customer’s satisfaction and your guys are great.
— T.F.
Columbine did a great job! We are very pleased. Freddy’s crew was great as well.
— M.P.
In a world where irresponsibility seems to abound, it is a pleasure to encounter your company that takes care of its customers with rapidity, regard and concern.
— A.E.
I know I’ve said this to you before, but I will say it again. From start to finish, Columbine more than met our expectations, and our expectations are higher than most people’s. Our concerns were always your concerns and without exception, every Columbine employee was helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. We feel very blessed to have worked with such an organization as Columbine.
— P.B.
It is always nice to work with a company that believes in quality work, and that is reflected in their [Columbine Design’s] employees’ attitudes and work.
— M.F.
We enjoyed working with you on this project. We appreciate your thoroughness and adaptability to the ever-changing conditions.
— J.V.
Thanks, Greg, Victor and the crew, for turning my unsightly front yard into a thing of beauty (and at a very reasonable budget). It’s just beautiful, and I am very impressed with your professionalism, talent and hard work.
— L.L.
I have been very pleased with Josh and the irrigation crew that came to do some work for me. The work seems thorough and professional. Specifically: they laid my garden mesh irrigation system out in a manner that I can add plants to it and they buried a tubing under sod and didn’t leave any patch evidence. They took care of an unexpected drainage problem that caused water in my basement. I liked that fact that Josh was here and worked with his crew. His crew did a great job of explaining the irrigation timer to me. I am also impressed with the fact that your company has its specialists for the different areas, and they communicate and are on time.
— D.R.
The pots look amazing! Thank you sooooo much!
— S.W.
It is just the sort of silent auction item we are seeking for the fundraiser!! Annie and Columbine are very generous, and I love the unique aspect of a ‘container planting party.’
— C.U.
I really enjoyed working with you and your crew and appreciate the good work they did. Thank you for making a tough challenge enjoyable.
— D.C.
I can’t gush enough about how delighted we are with the project! As soon as I save up enough money, I’ll have you come back and do my front yard, too!
— D.D.
We are pleased with both the design and execution of the project and would recommend Columbine Design to friends.
— M.B.
The two gentlemen working on our drainage problem are great! I needed you to know that you can be very proud of your crew and the fact they remember our problem and are working diligently to resolve it. They are friendly, professional, knowledgeable and can explain the work that they are doing. Thank you for scheduling us so quickly and being so thorough. You are sincerely appreciated!
— D.M.
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the professional manner in which you and your team conducted the work. The work crew was so kind and you were very responsive and so flexible. Thank you!
— K.J.
One thing I can tell you is that your crew did an amazing job under some tough conditions (the two hottest days of the year). They worked so hard, staying both evenings well past 6:00 p.m. (last night past 7:00 p.m.). They were courteous, professional and diligent in all they did. They worked tirelessly to make sure that everything was done properly. I appreciated their attention to detail and cleaning up meticulously.
— K.T.
Thanks again for your team’s hard work on the yard. Our house sold five days after being listed.
— T.H.
Thank you again, we are thoroughly enjoying our yard and the compliments from the neighbors are endless!
— M.T.
I can’t thank you enough for your wonderful help! You are so prompt in solving all our garden problems, be it fountain fixing, beautiful pots of flowers, or a screen to protect us from golf balls! Know you are all greatly appreciated!
— N.L.
I am pleased both with the outcome of the project and that the work was performed in a professional manner by such talented and pleasant people as you and Tom. It was a pleasure to deal with everyone in your firm, and I will not hesitate to recommend Columbine Design to my acquaintances.
— M.B.
We want to thank you for doing such an outstanding job landscaping our home. After having dealt with many contractors in the past, it was refreshing to work with someone who is talented, honest, and completely reliable.
— C.D.
All work was done in a timely manner, within budget, and to my complete satisfaction. A year later, Columbine Design has continued to monitor their work and have honored their guarantee in respect to the few plantings that did not survive the winter. I have no hesitation in recommending Columbine Design for their professionalism and courtesy.
— G.D.
I want to thank you personally for working with me on the landscape design. You have good ideas that are practical for the Colorado climate and resulted in just the look we wanted.
— J.Y.
