We gave this family a space to enjoy for every age group! We created several areas to build memories and share stories for years to come. The adults have a cozy fire pit area lined with plantings and, well, the kiddos have the rest of the yard for fun and games. Even their own flagstone patio for their playhouse and tea parties 😉

About this Project
With a very functional and practical design we were able to completely transform this yard so it could be used by everyone! We wanted to keep the modern vibe of the home’s interior and carry that into elements of the landscaping. We used corten steel throughout the yard in building new walls and edging while incorporating natural elements like Colorado Buff flagstone and hardy plantings.
The lines are clean and sharp in the hardscaping and the tones are darker to compliment the theme of the home. We worked around the beautiful Maple that was existing and concrete walls that separated this yard from the neighbors. We poured new concrete walls to match that also help separate the outdoor “rooms”. This is the goal of outdoor living; to bring the home’s aesthetic outdoors and create rooms that everyone can enjoy.
We kept the front yard a bit more simple – we re-defined the planting beds layout with straight lines at an angle to fit the modern look. We installed a new Colorado Buff Flagstone patio in the front yard so the parents can spend their evenings enjoying the beautiful sunsets while watching all the neighbor kids playing. The plantings are very intentional and will hold up to the strong and hot evening sun. There are about a dozen different varieties of plant life in the front yard so there is appeal during the three main growing seasons while offering many different looks and textures to the yard. Can’t forget the lighting! Up lights were added to accentuate some of the plantings, path lights for safety and security, and cafe lights for the “adult” area so it can be enjoyed well beyond sunset.

“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.”
