A Dream Extension To Your Home
Installing a new landscape on your property is similar to building an addition onto your home. A lot of thought goes into the design process, and it is only then that the construction begins. In this case, your new living space happens to be on the outside! And just as a professional home builder would take advantage of the best materials, use of space, environmental influences and the surrounding rooms, our landscape team creates a stunning presentation of hardscape and softscape materials that measure up to your personal preferences and life activities.
Phases of Landscape Development
Accentuating your property with specially built features, tree, shrubs and flowers follow a step-by-step process.
- The surface of your property is scraped and graded to remove unwanted materials. We use equipment to push the earth around, giving it a new shape.
- Drainage trenches and lines are installed to move rainwater to where it will be of the greatest benefit to the plant life, and to prevent flooding through the foundation of your house.
- Your yard will require some irrigation, even if we use sustainable landscaping strategies. This is the phase where watering and sprinkler systems are installed.
- The hardscape elements are constructed or installed. This could be walkways, patios, decks, fences, walls, fireplaces, water features, decorative stone, or landscape boulders - almost anything that is not a living plant!
- The softscape elements are added. These are all the living trees, plants and grasses that bring vibrancy, color and fragrance to your yard. It also includes flower beds, vegetable gardens and fruit trees.
- Your new yard may get as much night time use as it does day time use. We install lighting to provide appropriate illumination for safety and security purposes. Solar or LED lights lower your use of electricity. We can also use lighting to create the perfect ambiance for balmy evenings under the Colorado skies.
Sustainable Landscapes That Protect Natural Resources
Sustainability is another area where we shine. Living in cooperation with the natural environment and being respectful of its resources are highly revered by the residents of Westminster, CO. One might think that a landscape is intrinsically friendly to the environment, but at Outdoor Craftsmen we implement landscape techniques that not only enhance the beauty of your home but serve to protect the soil and reduce consumption of precious resources.
Certain hardscape elements, such as patios, seating areas or sections of decorative stone add durability and practicality to your property. When balanced well with the planted areas, this cuts back on the need for expansive lawns that require constant watering. We hand select prairie grasses and drought-resistant plants that can thrive well with only the normal amount of rainfall.
We put a great deal of thought in the drainage of your property. By diverting rainwater to planted areas, we encourage it to seep slowly in the soil, rather than running off wasted into the storm sewers. This also helps to prevent contaminants from entering our local waterways.
