Only 7 miles west of Denver, Lakewood is fast becoming one of the most popular places in the state to call home! Close to the city, with access to all of the things Colorado has to offer, Lakewood has seen a revitalization over the past few years. Lakewood has a lively cultural arts scene, lots of craft beer and restaurants to enjoy, top-notch education including two colleges, and loads of trails and parks.
The city also has a lot of open space, filled with campgrounds, equestrian trails, and many lakes for swimming. Lakewood is surrounded by various mountains including Green Mountain which offers panoramic views of Denver. With all of the new development, many Lakewood homeowners are looking to either create or update their overall landscape design. But with the city's unique climate, vegetation, and soil, building the perfect Lakewood, CO landscape design and maintaining it will require the help of professionals.
Exceptional Lakewood, CO Landscape Design Services
At the Landscaping Company, our talented landscape design team can transform your lawn and outdoor living space into an oasis. As you work with us, we will help you conceive the beautiful landscape design you've always wanted. We offer a variety of services that will make your outdoor space stand out from the rest:
- Irrigation design and installation
- Patios, decks, pergolas, and more!
- Custom water features (fountains, pools, waterfalls, ponds, streams, riverbeds, etc.)
- Outdoor kitchens and dining areas
We take our clients' wants and needs very seriously and include them in every step of the landscaping process. When you first call us, we will discuss your desired landscape design and set up an appointment to meet with you in person. From there, we will discuss your priorities and expectations as well as your budget.
We will also evaluate your property. Using your input and ideas, our designers and architects will prepare a proposed design. It will include the type of design we will complete as well as things that need to be done to achieve the design. The design proposal will also include our schedule and costs. If you see that we need to make additional changes to the proposal, no worries! Once you're happy with our proposed plans, we get right to work.
So how do we create our beautiful landscape designs for our clients? By implementing a proven process for each feature unique to every property.
Irrigation and Xeriscape Design
When installing irrigation and xeriscape, we follow a simple process. Our main goal is to create a water-efficient landscape that will help you save time and money as well as provide you with years of enjoyment. We take into account the existing features of the landscape such as:
- The type of soil on the property
- Plants that take a while to grow, that require certain amounts of water (in Colorado, drought-resistant plants are key!), or may be difficult to replace
- Patios, walkways, and other hardscape structures
- High or low spots
- Slopes that may be difficult to irrigate efficiently
Once we've completed a site evaluation, we can develop an irrigation design plan that is unique to your land.
Whether you want a deck, patio, pergola, or other types of outdoor structures, we will evaluate your property for any challenges we may face when building your desired hardscape. For example, you may want to install a patio, but you're working with a small space. We can help you find the best location for your patio and select the flattest area.
Perhaps you want to add a patio but your space has a lot of topography, which could make it challenging to find usable space. We can create a design that fits your terrain and find ways to address drainage issues. On all our designs, we will follow the latest building codes and use the best materials available.
Custom Water Features
Before designing a custom water feature for you, we will first take measurements of your property. This will help give us an idea of the shape and size of your custom water feature that will make the most of your space. From there, we will create the best design unique to your land, with your input of course!
Have a design idea? We will recommend materials (i.e. which ones work best with water), size, or any other design aspect that will be functional while at the same time, help you realize your dream. We will provide detailed information about the dimensions and materials.
Because certain water features like fountains require custom building, they may require fabrication and shipping. Once everything is ready, we will install your water feature and ensure the proper setup so that you can enjoy the beautiful view and calming sound of water for years to come.
Outdoor Kitchens and Dining Areas
One of our landscape architects will meet with you to conceive the perfect outdoor kitchen and/or dining area design for your space. By consulting with you, our designers will get a feel for your vision and your desired use of space and function.
From there, we will develop a detailed design that will help you visualize the details before installation. If you're happy, we can start building!
By visiting your home, one of our designers will determine your specific landscape lighting needs. We will discover focal points and points of interest such as the unique architectural elements of your home, walkways/driveways, flowers and plants, etc. Once we've developed a light-scape plan that works well with your landscape, we'll go over it with you to ensure your satisfaction. Then, we'll install lighting that goes beautifully with your landscape.
