The Denver Post recently featured Outdoor Craftsmen prominently in their recent article “For a lovely landscape this spring, start planning now”.
The article provides tips on planning for your landscape (take a look at other landscapes to get a view of how various features might look in your own; notice sun and shade patterns, consider more xeric), and encourages us outdoor environment lovers to start the planning process now – while the snow is flying and we’re hunkered down inside with garden catalogs, picture books of gorgeous landscapes, and our dream list.
The article mentions Scott Deemer’s own landscape labor of love on his half acre property in Niwot. “It had some really great open space behind it, and that set the aesthetic,” he says. The article notes that in addition to making the yard have a feeling of flow into the open space, he sought to reflect the modern lines of the home.
500 tons of boulders were brought in for the project, and were chosen specifically for their ‘sculptured presentation’ which lends a very natural rock formation to the overall design. Deemer also added approximately 3000 plants divided into ‘hydrozones’ (grouped according to needs for light, drainage, and unique soils).
