Fire Pits and Outdoor Fireplaces
With Colorado's cool winters - an average of 45 degrees - you'll want to keep warm when you're lounging outdoors. Cozy up next to your outdoor fireplace and have a hot cup of coffee while you enjoy the view of Lakewood's mountains. Heat up your Lakewood, CO outdoor living space with a firepit. Instead of bringing your party indoors when the sun goes down, you can keep your guests warm right outdoors. According to your style and taste, we will custom build an outdoor fireplace or firepit that perfectly fits with your home's style and landscape.
Irrigation Design and Installation
The key to a beautiful, lush lawn is regular watering. We can design a sprinkler and irrigation system that is not only functional, but one that is actually customized specifically with you and your landscape in mind. Did you know that Colorado only receives about 15.47 inches of precipitation each year? That means certain types of grass, flowers, shrubs, and trees need extra nourishment to keep thriving and flourishing in your Colorado lawn. The ever-changing temperatures of Lakewood also play a role in the moisture content of plants and how much moisture they absorb. In January, the average high is about 43 degrees, while the average low can be 12 degrees. Couple that with a dry climate and you've got yourself some thirsty plants!
With over 20 years of experience designing landscapes and installing sprinkler systems, we understand the different soil types in the Colorado area. We also have experience designing the appropriate irrigation system for each type of soil as certain soils require specific amounts of water, sunlight, and mulch.
Patios, Decks, Pergolas, and More!
A landscape design would not be complete without landscape features that add the perfect atmosphere to your outdoor space. Spend calm mornings out on the deck, watching the clear blue skies and listening to birds chirping. After doing some tiring yard work, take a rest on your patio while drinking a refreshing glass of ice cold lemonade. We design and build landscape features such as patios, decks, pergolas, verandas, and more. In need of some inspiration for designing your ideal outdoor area?

Custom Water Features
Water features can add beauty and serenity to any landscape. If you come up with the ideal water feature design, we can build it. Or if you're not sure what design you want, we'll brainstorm ideas with you and incorporate them into a custom plan just for you and your landscape. Below are some of the water features we can design and build for you:
After installing your water features, we'd be more than happy to provide ongoing maintenance such as removing any surface debris and identifying potential problems in your water feature.
Outdoor Kitchens and Dining Areas
Adding a kitchen and dining area to your landscape can make it more inviting and bring entertainment to your outdoor area. An outdoor kitchen and dining spot is the perfect place to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks with your friends and family. To help you maximize your outdoor living experience, we can place your outdoor kitchen in a beautifully landscaped setting such as in front of your swimming pool, water features, flowers, or trees. These visual focal points can add interest to your outdoor living space and provide a calming, serene background.
Imagine sitting on your porch at night and enjoying the way your outdoor lights illuminate your gorgeous landscape design? We can create and design an outdoor lighting system that will allow you to entertain guests when the sun goes down, highlight the beautiful landscape features of your home, and increase your family's safety. For extra security, we can add lighting along your walkway/driveway and in the darkest corners of your property. We can also add lights to your patio and deck, garden, and pool.
Denver's dry climate doesn't bring much moisture to its plants. Your flowers, trees, shrubs, and grass could end up looking lifeless without proper maintenance. That's why a xeriscape is the perfect solution to keep your beautiful plants full of life! Xeriscapes are landscape designs that use very little water to keep plants hydrated and nourished. Xeriscape is a low-maintenance solution to gardening that can save you lots of time and money by reducing water usage and maintenance costs by up to 60%.
We will thoroughly evaluate your lawn to identify shady and sunny areas as well as check your soil type. Then, we can plan a xeriscape design that is right for you, using drought-resistant flowers, shrubs, and trees that are well-suited to Colorado's arid climate.
