Firewise Landscaping

Fire-mitigating landscaping is a critical investment in the future safety of your home.


Colorado-sourced stone walls, patios, pathways, arbors, decorative boulders, and water features add beauty and functionality.

Sustainability Is Not A Word. It’s A Way Of Life

Our obsessively plant-driven designs have won numerous landscape design and installation awards for our work, and have been featured in Sunset Magazine, Landscape Architecture and the New York Times. Matrix was integrally involved in creating the first “Sustainable Landscaping Best Practices” for the Colorado Front Range and coordinating several symposia on Sustainable Landscaping at the Denver Botanic Gardens.

We have received many “Excellence in Landscape” Awards from the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado (ALCC), including the first two “Sustainable Landscaping” awards, given for homes in the Boulder’s Holiday neighborhood and the Coal Creek neighborhood in Lafayette.
