In the front yard we removed all the grass and xeriscaped the space to reduce water use and minimize maintenance. The backyard is intended to be used by the client and their dog so we installed artificial turf and a beautiful paver patio. No more grass!

About this Project
Fitting the local trend of being water-conscious and reducing yard maintenance as much as possible, this yard was designed to do just this. This is a newly built home in a beautiful golf course neighborhood and the client really didn’t want to have to do much work to keep the yard in great shape.
The front yard was xeriscaped with native plantings and drip irrigation along with several different materials to give it a combination of textures and color. A dry creek bed was laid in to help break up the space and give a very natural look using all local materials. Outdoor lighting highlights some of the hardy plantings.
The backyard is the perfect space for the client to enjoy summer evenings and let the dog have a nice, green lawn year round! This is one of the benefits of artificial turf – It will be green year round and it is great for pets because they won’t track mud into the house through the dormant winter months. We installed a paver patio using a paver that has a very natural look and feel to it. The client will be able to have a fire pit out here or a dining table, depending on the occasion. More outdoor lighting in the back to make sure the client is getting the most out of their investment and can enjoy the yard year-round and beyond the hours of daylight. This yard has been the talk of the neighborhood!

“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!”

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.”
