About this Project

This project offered up a lot of challenges because of the steep grade the lot sat on but also presented us with some unique opportunities in the design.

We utilized natural stone to complement the Colorado scenery for steppers down to the lower patio area as well as ornamental boulders throughout the landscape.

The dry creek bed is not only functional but is unique to this home. Adding landscape lighting really enhances all the awesome features of our landscape as well as keeping the area safe for the homeowners and guests. The lower patio and fireplace offers another outdoor space for the homeowners to entertain.

Our clients wanted to have a landscape that was unique and different from the rest of his neighborhood. With strict guidelines from the HOA we wanted to make sure our product stood out among the rest. We incorporated different colored materials to create a custom landscape that still met HOA requirements. Another challenge we were faced with was creating additional parking space for the homeowners and their guests.

    To meet our client’s request of standing apart from his neighbors we presented materials that were not installed in every other yard. During the interview and estimating process we sent our client to our local distributors to look at materials and make sure they approve of all our recommendations. This allows the customer to see the materials in person before they are delivered to the site. This allows our customers to get the best possible products and ensures we are only installing quality materials that the customer approves of.

     For the parking we installed a unique product that allows you to park a full sized vehicle on the grass solving additional overflow parking. Our client was very happy with the finished product and it has become a key talking point for the homeowner. For this project and all of our installations we strive to be different and unique in all facets of the landscape and hardscape industry. With our craftsmanship and expertise you can be confident that your landscaping will stand above the rest and it will withstand our harsh climates.

    Down to Earth Landscaping came highly recommended from one of our executives in the office. From the first call to the final handshake this company met our expectations. My wife Sherry and I were looking for some key design features to set our landscaping apart from the rest of the neighborhood. Down to Earth Landscaping put their personal touch on our design and the final product turned out exceptional. Jeff and his crew were very professional, well organized and respectful throughout the entire installation of our Landscaping. Sherry and I are extremely satisfied with the entire process and have recommended them to many of our colleagues, friends and neighbors.

    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!”

    – Christa S.

    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.

    – Emily H.

    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.

    – Kat D.

    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.

    – Adam G.

    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.”

    – Adam G.

    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.”
