This is an exciting, on-going project in Golden, CO. Our client had a unique opportunity to renovate this classic ranch style house into their dream home, and pulled LH Design CO in to completely re-design the landscaping. The potential of the lot is endless! To take advantage of Colorado’s wonderful climate, a 1,200 sq ft. patio was added to the house, most of which is covered. The house is U-shaped and the sides hug the patio, keeping patio-goers out of the wind. There is a wonderful barn on-site that will be converted into an outdoor living space, complete with it’s own patio. To accommodate guests and special events, as well as provide a quiet retreat for the homeowners, a large gazebo surrounded by flowering crabapples will be tucked into the northeast corner.
Privacy is a concern, so berms and evergreen trees are proposed along back property line and at the front of the home along the street. A wide variety of drought tolerant trees, shrubs and perennials were selected to allow for minimal watering.
