Every Project is Unique

Located high in Upper Skyway, this estate acreage was predominantly native grass under pines and scrub oak. Our clients were just finishing an interior remodel and were ready to take on the landscape. We began to meet, discuss goals, and provide design solutions. Our clients had a vision of a family compound, built for outdoor activity for everyone of all ages to gather, engage, exercise, and relax.

The first step was to carve a series of walking paths through the native tree canopy, carefully routed to create interest and preserve the native Colorado mountain feel, while connecting the numerous amenities.

These paths tie together these amenities that were artfully placed throughout the acreage. The one third mile trail complex takes you to all corners of the property. Passing by a bocci ball court, a basketball court, putting green, inground trampoline, play house, greenhouse and potting shed, the path leads through an interconnecting series of gardens and planting areas. We incorporated multiple exercise pads and resting spots to stop and work out or enjoy the natural beauty.

At the center of this is the swimming pool. This central gathering place is generous in scale. A gas fire feature siting at one end looks over the large pool with built in spa. The patio space around is composed of state-of-the-art porcelain pavers designed for classic elegance, durability, and a perfect no slip surface for the pool. Raised planters and tiered gardens anchor this space to the surrounding natural beauty, with the meandering paths linking to it in six locations to facilitate the journey into the wooded compound.

We also designed and built interesting and discreet storage buildings, lawn areas, perennial cutting gardens, new driveways, low voltage night lighting, xeriscape borders, custom stucco walls, and planters. Although it is naturally a wooded property, copious specimen trees were placed throughout.

The result was a remarkable transformation with a high-end resort aesthetic. Please feel free to contact us if we can be of help transforming the outdoor living space of your home.
