Top-notch Superior, CO Landscaping Services
Superior, CO has its roots in coal mining, farming and ranching, and gets its namesake from the excellent quality of coal that was discovered in the area. Since its beginnings, it has been a thriving town and has grown into an affluent Denver suburb - a place for families to grow and flourish. Land that was once farmed has been converted to commercial development and retail conveniences. The construction of modern residential homes is at an all-time high. With 594 acres of parks, open space and hiking trails within the town limits, it is apparent how much the community values the natural environment. In a short few years, the population tripled, and as it continues to expand, we at Outdoor Craftsmen are proud to be a part of the superior quality of homes in the area through our landscaping services.

Landscaping Services: How It Works
In the beginning, our creative team initiates a collaboration with you to design a plan that includes everything on your wish list. You will be pleasantly surprised at the artistry in our designs, and the clever execution of all facets of your vision. Next, our craftsmen and horticultural experts step in to implement the design, with immaculate attention to detail throughout each phase of the project.
Grading, irrigation and drainage - We take a walk around your property to assess its current conditions. From there we consider the best options to build the underlying foundation for the later project phases. This could mean removing, adding or moving earth, and installing drainage and irrigation systems.
Hardscaping - A well-balanced yard includes a mix of structural and living elements. Structures or "hard" features include brick, concrete and stonework, retaining walls, patios, decks, walkways, water features, fireplaces, spas, etc.
Softscaping - This is the greenery that gives life, color, fragrance and vibrancy to your exterior living space. Trees, plants, flowers, shrubs, grasses, ground covers, vegetable gardens - these are considered the "soft" elements in your landscape.
Outdoor lighting - For safety and security reasons we install the lights where illumination for walkways and certain areas is necessary during the evening hours. Wherever possible, we install solar or LED lighting to reduce energy consumption.
Exterior home upgrades - While you are planning for your new landscape, ideas for aesthetic improvements to your home's exterior may come up. Our skilled craftsmen can take care of this for you with professional expertise, matching your home's architecture to your new landscape.
Xeriscaping - Supporting The "Green" Initiative
One of the goals of Superior's Town Board is to encourage environmental sustainability. Responsibility to the environment covers conservation and protecting natural resources. Xeriscaping is a system of landscaping that incorporates both.
We have won numerous industry awards, not only for our stunning landscape designs but for our carefully thought out plans for reducing water and energy consumption.
During the initial inspection of your property, we determine the optimal strategies for recycling rainwater by directing it through drainage systems into areas of your yard where vital moisture is required. Our horticultural team hand-selects varieties of grasses, plants and trees that do well in the normal amount of precipitation for the local climate. This can cut back on the need to "artificially" water by as much as 60 percent.
An appropriate balance of hardscaped areas supports the local green initiative. We artfully construct areas that don't require water, yet add to the beauty and ambiance of your yard.
Uncontrolled rainfall causes low-level flooding or runoff on your property, across surfaces such as driveways, where it picks up oil and residue left by motor vehicles. Without proper drainage, particles of soil are washed away and creating an organic imbalance to local streams and lakes. Through the implementation of water-saving techniques, we automatically reduce soil erosion and the number of contaminants that enter the natural waterways.
