Garden Theme: A “Splash” of Colorado Outdoor Living
We love the beauty of the majestic Rocky Mountains. In our garden, our goal was to bring the same natural-looking landscape into the backyard setting, providing a peaceful retreat that is as impressive as the mountain landscape, as tranquil as the lure of streams flowing over the mountain boulders. We accented our outdoor living spaces with stunning waterfall cascades and artistically landscaped gardens. This is just a “splash” of what we love about living in Colorado!

Theme: Double Vision Garden
The city setting has structure, is more self-contained and maintained using dwarf plants and a smaller water feature. A patio using large pavers and a fireplace create the modern, urban look. The suburban setting has more free-form plants, a cascading water feature with boulders, a flagstone patio and sunken fire circle creating a more natural look. They both address similar design elements but differ greatly in style and plant materials.

Garden Theme: Backyard Camping
Welcome to Campground de Casa! Sometimes our busy lives take over and we don’t have the time to partake in extracurricular activities, like camping. What if I told you that you don’t have to pack up the car and drive to a destination to create outdoor memories with your family. Just step into your backyard! Pitch the tent and start the fire, were staying home tonight! Start the evening by cooking a delicious meal in your state of the art outdoor kitchen, complete with grill, pizza oven and kegerator. Once the sun goes down it’s time to tell ghost stories by the firepit. To end the night, relax under the stars, by the fireplace with a few cold brews. And if you don’t feel like sleeping on the ground your bed is only a few steps away. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and let us create a backyard you can escape to!
