labyrinth Garden

Greenwood Village, CO
5+ Acres

Dakin has been working on this ongoing project since 2005. On this estate, landscape takes precedence. All architecture is oriented toward the garden. Avid gardeners, the clients are creating a park-like estate and permacultural paradise with multiple uses. Chickens, ducks, food crops and areas of restored native prairie merge with a walking labyrinth, patches of formal lawn for croquet, charred wood fences and an outdoor shower. A complex irrigation system was designed to draw alternately from wells and cisterns. Mature trees onsite were preserved and moved to new locations.
