Dave Johnson, Landscape Architect, LLC
Landscape Architects and Designers in Denver
"Dave designed an amazing space for our family and was a pleasure to work with. He listened to our input and incorporated all of the elements that we required and added a modern touch to the entire project. We are asked often about who designed our outdoor space and we gladly give them Dave's informaiton with the greatest confidence. I would highly recommend Dave Johnson regardless of your budget or scale of project. In addition to designing a beuaitful space, Dave went above and beyond to manage the contractors we hired and keep the project on time."

Alpine Gardens
Landscape Architects and Designers in Denver
"I used Alpine Gardens for a whole-yard remodel to a very small Old Town Fort Collins lot, with a very very restricted budget. They ripped out at least half of the existing landscaping, worked with a contractor to install a fence, an irrigation system and sod. They also provided me with a step by step guide for the next phases of planting, to be completed by me when I can afford it. Pros: The landscape design service, which was an extra fee, was well worth the money. Kris provided me with an excellent design that maximized my tiny space and my equally tiny budget, and a road map for future improvements. He picked up on the elements I liked, and incorporated them into the design. The plantings recommended were appropriate for the climate and my yard, and creative. It was great to have one company handle all the contracting (the fence). The crew were friendly and competent. They did sort of accidentally rip out a whole side of the yard that was supposed to stay, but they then landscaped that side for free, so that's a pro overall. Cons: The overall finishing was just a bit rough around the edges. Overall: A great, friendly, all-service company delivering a mid-to-high range experience for a low-range budget. I would recommend. UPDATE: This company has really stood by their work. They've fixed all the "rough around the edges" problems, and have returned every year to fix the gates (the wood warps and settles, it's no one's fault). I highly recommend them for their honesty, integrity, and willingness to see a job through to the end, even if that end is two years later!"

Bloom Concrete & Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Denver
"Lauren bloom helped me design a tricky back yard remodel. I told her a few ideas of what I wanted and she came up with a design that had so many amazing features I never would have been able to come up with on my own. We are in the second stage of putting the plan to reality and it looks amazing so far. I can't wait for the final product!! I Definately recommend this company. They are a very professional company and they have won several awards for their high quality work. They are featured often on our local news channel in Denver and I make sure to always tune in to listen to them! (Channel 9 news in case you are wondering) they always post their segments onto their Facebook page."

Designscapes Colorado Inc.
Landscape Architects and Designers in Denver
"We're original owners of a "semi-custom" home built in the early 90's. For nearly 20 years we had a cookie-cutter front yard -- bluegrass, one tree, builder front porch. In 2012 -- the hottest summer on record for the Denver area -- we decided to break the mold in the neighborhood and xeriscape the yard. Phil and Designscapes came highly recommended and we now see why. Our yard is no longer cookie-cutter or boring in any way! New driveway, redesigned front porch that is safer and easier to navigate, xeriscape groundcovers that are more beautiful than bluegrass now provide a lovely welcoming entrance to our home. We've added a water feature and seating this summer, along with pots full of flowering annuals. As expected, we had a few plants that didn't make it through the winter, but they were promptly replaced under Designscapes' warranty this summer. I can't recommend a company more highly. I'm sure they aren't the least expensive. I am sure they produced the highest value for our money and I can't wait to do the back yard!"

I-Design Landscape
Landscape Architects and Designers in Denver
"When we were in the process of working with our architect and builder in 2004, we also contacted I -Design to create our complete lawn, garden, shrubbery, fish pond and water falls for our property. In addition, all landscape lighting was arranged and installed by Chris., I -Design installed our sprinkler system and continues to upgrade it as we've re-arranged beds and incorporated various rock gardens, which Chris designed and built. He is always available to discuss possible changes and we trust his ideas. While the initial job, including building the flagstone patio and walkways took place in 2004 and 2005, our relationship is on going and we are constantly adding features and new areas. Larry Guss"

She is not only knowledgeable, resourceful and a hard worker, but also fair and reasonable - a perfect combo!"

Ivy Street Design
Landscape Architects and Designers in Denver
"We wanted the landscape for our new house to be water frugal and low maintenance but also lush and beautiful. Ivy Street Design proposed several alternatives and devised a plan that met our requirements. Wendy and her staff know what plants can thrive in Denver's climate and have extensive experience working with landscape contractors. They helped us select a contractor and oversaw the contractor's work. During the first summer, Wendy frequently checked the plants' growth. One year later, Wendy was back on the job to ensure the warranty work was done to replace plants that had failed. Overall, Ivy Street Design met the deadlines and budget and demonstrated a high level of expertise. The resulting landscape is unusual and beautiful. We enjoy it every day."

What does a landscape architect do?

The work of this outdoor professional includes most everything surrounding a home's exterior. A landscaping architect can even work with the home architect to choose the right spot for your Denver house. From there the landscaper will develop preliminary concepts for your front or backyard design based on individual needs including the climate and activities that will take place, as well as layouts and planting plans. Landscape architects will also design any structures or outbuildings that will be added to the space. Any grading changes that will be added to the yard are also the responsibility of the architect. This includes any drainage modifications. An engineer can also be responsible for these tasks, but licensed landscapers are fully capable. Like building architects, they will produce preliminary concept drawings as well as detailed construction documents and planting plans. Three-dimensional renderings and illustrative plans are all supplementary.

What does a landscape designer do?

A landscaping designer generally will have ecological, aesthetic and technical training, which helps them maximize the potential of your outdoor space. Keeping in mind both style and functionality, garden designers analyze your architecture and yard to produce a plan that may or may not include location and materials for walkways, patios, water features, fences, garden aspects and more. In addition, a landscaper in Denver will carefully assess your geographic region to choose plants, trees and flowers that will flourish naturally, as well as address concerns such as drainage, screening and soil conditions. Certain landscape designers only help with the planning portion, while some may deliver the plans and then oversee a hired landscaping contractor. Others — typically following a design-build approach — take care of both the design and all aspects of the landscape architecture and construction.

Before you hire a professional landscaper, consider the scope and emphasis of your outdoor project. Landscape architects, who typically hold advanced degrees in their field, are trained to develop comprehensive structural plans that include plants, hardscaping, water use, drainage and more. Landscape designers typically specialize in the aesthetic and horticultural, rather than structural, side of yard and garden planning. They might or might not have advanced training. Even within their fields, a garden designer may specialize in hardscape- or vegetation-focused designs. In some cases you might need to hire additional help to get the outdoor space you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of landscape architects & landscape designers: Landscape Contractors, Garden & Landscape Supplies, Tree Services, Gardeners, Lawn Care & Sprinklers, Decks, Patios & Outdoor Enclosures.

Questions to ask prospective landscapers in Denver:

  • Can you provide me with references?
  • How long have you been in the landscaping business?
  • What is your certification?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • How much do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What regions and climates are you skilled in?
  • Can you accommodate my special requests (such as ADA or LEED)?
  • What types of renderings will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can you complete this project?
  • What do your services include?
  • Who will be working on the project design?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns that you know of or that might come up in the future with this project?
