Quail Ridge

On Quail Ridge we expanded the existing flagstone patio, constructed a huge pergola, and built one of the largest fireplaces in the city.

  • Date: 2021
  • Project Type: Flagstone flatwork, Masonry fireplace, Plantings, Pergola

About this Project

This fireplace is a showstopper! Standing at a whopping 14’ above the patio, this is one of the largest wood-burning fireplaces in the area. This unit was built with CMU block on a 3’ deep footer and stone veneer. You can see it from several houses away! To add in another outdoor entertaining area, we expanded the flagstone work and added a pergola to distinguish this space as the ultimate relaxing area. 

Previously, this area was very exposed and was tough to utilize because of the heat during the summer. It was only enjoyed in the evening and even then it didn’t feel quite right. The wish list was to create some protection during the day and make it much more usable year round. Mission accomplished! The pure heat of the wood-burning fireplace will be enjoyed well into the winter months.

Client Testimonials

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 whole Down to Earth team is excellent.  They offer a superb level of personalized care and keep our lawns and yards looking beautiful year round.  They are super responsive to any new needs or concerns we may have and they are always pleasant to interact with. I highly recommend DTE.

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.”
