This landscape design melds contemporary architecture with the pasturelands beyond to create a homestead for modern living. Preserving existing amenities onsite, including ponds fed by historic irrigation ditches, stately trees, acres of pastureland for the owner’s livestock, and a magnificent view of the Front Range to the west, this landscape draws inspiration from the surrounding high-altitude prairie and its agricultural heritage. This drought-tolerant ecosystem of native and naturalized grasses and forbes mirrors prairie beyond. Native trees were planted and existing water features were enhanced with new stonework. A small orchard was added by the barn and a flower garden explodes with blooms in the Spring, providing a backdrop for family gatherings.
