Winter enriches us

Winter is one of the most enriching seasons for landscape professionals in general and in particular for the talented fine artists at Outdoor Craftsmen.

The best kind of gift to our clients

In honoring the natural environments we are transforming we are doing our very best work.

The beauty of Chrysanthemums in the November garden

The summer annuals helping to fill your landscape with added color and interest tuckered out (finally!) with our recent first snow of the year. Until last week they may have already been leggy and exchanged blooming for making seeds.

Take note in the garden this fall

In the garden, Autumn is indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, save perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb color effects as from August to November. - Rose G. Kingsley, The Autumn Garden

Autumn is a second spring and every leaf’s a flower. – Albert Camus

We feel a certain sorrow at the passing of light and sunny summer days, yet the best days of fall give us some of the most stop-and-pause moments of the year because of our beautiful gardens, neighborhoods, and parks.

Going to the Dark Side

Dark colored plants, trees and shrubs add astonishing mood and intensity to an outdoor environment.

The Seasonal Landscape

Outdoor Craftsmen receives many requests to craft landscapes befitting of the land while setting the mood for each distinct Colorado season. We relish these projects for their opportunity to meticulously plan for how you will experience and use your landscape all year.

All About Personality

Every landscape has a personality. Over time and the fullness of life we come to recognize the unique characteristics that give the land, your land, a unique voice.

Rethinking the landscape

The interaction between landscape and house expands our thinking to much larger than the square footage of the house alone.

The season for dreaming.

Longer days. Sunday drives. First blooming daffodils. The great outdoors beckons us from our winter cocoons...
