Denver Hilltop

Capped flagstone retaining walls and a simple clean xeriscape plant palette is the basis for the success of this landscape. Achieved by integrating the materials and architecture of the house, this lovely established home had a prominent flagstone chimney and steps—and a large and difficult to maintain expansive front lawn.

By integrating the flagstone into the retaining walls and maintaining the clean lines of the house, we broke up the space and minimized the extreme grade. We then created a xeriscape environment with low water usage turf grass, perennials, trees and shrubs, updating a classic to a modern style with current environmental standards.
