This home had a brand new addition and we wanted to complement the look of it and create an awesome outdoor living space for this family to enjoy! This addition had a “modern farmhouse” feel so we wanted to use products that would match well in color, texture, and style. The layout played a big part in the hardscape matching the home as well.

About this Project
This was a small space in the heart of the city but this is a project we are very accustomed to and it turned out awesome! Working in tight access areas and out of alleys is how our business grew up. In fact, DTE was born just a few blocks away. We understand the challenges of working in the city and we love transforming small spaces!
We were able to maximize the space based on the client’s needs & wants and give them plenty of patio space, while still making it feel cozy and warm. The bubbling rock water feature adds a focal point to the garden beds and has such a soothing feel and sound. There are two up lights highlighting this custom piece allowing it to be enjoyed long after the sun goes down. We wanted to keep straight lines in the patio and walls but had to add in one nice rounded edge to follow the path to the garage.
We re-purposed some really nice Colorado Red Flagstone that was used in the City of Denver sidewalks throughout the last century. This adds a natural feel to this updated backyard. We chose pavers that matched the color scheme of the addition and interior of the home. This was one of our favorite projects of 2022!

“So, to put it succinctly… we’ve had no fewer than 15 contractors at our house over the last 5 years and these guys are the ONLY ones we’ve called back to work with a second time. They’re communicative, well-priced, and always go above and beyond with their work. We’re more than satisfied with everything they’ve done. We recommend them to friends often. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”

“You guys. Seriously. Call Chuck and his team for all of your landscaping needs. Do your house and yard a favor – get in touch with Down to Earth. This is truly a remarkable group of people and I am so very grateful for their speed, experience, and work ethic. They do what they say they will. You can thank me later. (After you thank them for making your yard look like it belongs in a magazine!) Thank you so much!”

“Chuck and the whole down to earth team did an amazing job with my backyard! They were quick to give me a reasonable estimate, were flexible when I needed to make some changes, and stuck to their projected timeline throughout the project – the actual work only took a day and a half and everything looks great.”

“Chuck, Jeff and the entire team at Down to Earth Landscaping have completely outdone themselves with our home. We love it!!! They are so incredibly friendly, kind, knowledgeable, and willing to truly hear your needs. Upon walk-through, we received an estimate shortly thereafter, were easy to make change with, and did a beautiful job with our house. We cannot say enough good things – we plan to use them for future projects for our patio and completing phase 2 of our landscaping. You will not regret using Down to Earth Landscaping.”

“DTE were awesome throughout the entire process: from promptly coming out and giving us a very competitive initial quote, to quickly scheduling the work we wanted done, to getting it done quickly and professionally.
On schedule and at a very reasonable price. If you’ve ever attempted to hire a crew to come do some work on your house/yard in Denver in 2019, you know how rare that is. Oh, and their work is top-notch, and they do it all: fencing, landscaping, sod. Whatever you need, they can get it done.”

“Chuck and Down to Earth Landscaping were referred to me by a coworker and they were absolutely a pleasure to work with. Chuck was very accommodating to my schedule and was able to adapt on the fly when he and his company installed my new sprinkler system. They were very professional and easy to work with and I would recommend them to anyone who might need some landscaping work done.”
