Set in land of remarkable beauty – water, flatirons and continental divide views, great arc of sky- this landscape invites celebration of the simple joys of life. The clean lines and rich textures of the modern house are carried into the landscape, where they contrast with vibrant, exuberant plants. The expansive south patio is surrounded by xeric perennial flowers, grasses and herbs and accented with a simple water feature. Native grasses and shrubs cover the outer berms which provide privacy and noise mitigation from the surrounding roads. Dramatic native buff sandstone boulders frame the entry, stabilizing the slope and creating planting pockets for native perennial flowers, grasses and evergreens. The backyard offers relaxation, exercise and nourishment with a back patio and lawn, pickleball court, raised-bed vegetable garden and extensive edible landscaping.
