Features We Can Incorporate into Your Landscape Design
Are drainage issues or a lack of privacy preventing you from enjoying your outdoor spaces? Landscape architecture can correct those problems and more! It can also enhance the appeal of your yard, increase your property value, and create an outdoor area you'll love.
Managing the Challenging Black Forest, Colorado Terrain with Drainage and Retaining Walls
Colorado's Front Range residents often face challenging yards that include various slopes, grades, and elevation changes. Drainage and runoff are also often an issue in these yards. Creating proper landscape drainage will help your plants thrive while preventing soft, squishy areas or even mosquito-breeding pools of stagnant water.
Turn your yard's issues into an advantage with our expertly designed and crafted retaining walls. These retaining walls can become a beautiful part of your yard's hardscaping. Hard surfaces such as wood, boulders, natural stone, brick, and concrete set off your softer landscaping beautifully while also providing functional outdoor living space. At Jake's Design, we are experts in balancing beautifully natural landscaping with just the right hardscaping accents.
Conserving Water with Xeriscape
Xeriscaping gives you a stunning landscape that isn't as thirsty for Colorado's precious water as conventional plantings. Whoever said that drought-tolerant plants can't be gorgeous? Meandering walkways and comfortable patios invite you to stroll through the garden and then linger to enjoy Colorado's abundant sunshine. Even if you opt for a water-saving landscape, don't deprive yourself or visiting wildlife of water!
Water features are one of the most popular additions to any outdoor space. The relaxing sounds of moving water help reduce stress. The soothing sound of a water feature can also help drown out the unnatural sounds that are now so much a part of daily living. Water features are more than just a simple fountain or bubbler. We can create a custom mountain stream complete with splashing waterfalls or pools to attract birds and wildlife to your yard. The possibilities for adding water to your yard are endless!
Creating Your Black Forest Getaway in Your Own Backyard!
Cozying up to a fire pit extends the amount of time you can spend enjoying the beautiful outdoors. A fire pit is especially welcome in Black Forest, where our 7,369' elevation can make even summer evenings chilly. Of course, if you want to spend time outdoors at night, you'll need proper lighting. Custom outdoor lighting solutions will let you appreciate your landscaping while enjoying your outdoor living space.
One of the most popular aspects of outdoor living involves eating food cooked over the grill. Food always seems to taste better when it's cooked outdoors! Whether you're looking for a custom pizza oven or a high-end full outdoor kitchen, Jake's Designs can accommodate your outdoor cooking needs.
Our Unique Design Process
- We start with a careful and thorough plan that combines your needs and desires with the realities of your property.

We will then provide you with a cost estimate based on the site plan and the plants and materials you chose.
- We draw up a final plan showing a comprehensive planting layout and final budget. Upon your approval, we enter into a contract showing what you expect and what we will deliver!
