The Broadmoor community is increasingly recognized as a Colorado Springs neighborhood treasure and it is easy to see why. Its proximity to the best of the state's natural open spaces and trails as well as quick access to Denver makes it an ideal Colorado mountain location. With three golf clubs, multiple fitness and tennis facilities, and pleasant tree-lined streets, it's no wonder so many are choosing to call Broadmoor home.
Jake's Designs is happy to help homeowners make the most of their Broadmoor, Colorado property by providing top-of-the-line landscape construction services. Maximizing your outdoor living spaces with your own unique backyard design ideas is simpler than you might think.
Ready To Get Started On Your Dream Landscape?
It all starts with a big dream and a bit of imagination. Even the smallest details can have a huge impact on how your landscape looks and functions. Hardscaping provides definition and structure to the natural areas and features on your property. From stone walls to patios to interesting pathways, outdoor spaces can be professionally transformed into your own personal oasis.
- Patios and Decks — A patio or deck is often the centerpiece of your backyard landscape. It serves as an extension of your living spaces and as a welcoming gathering spot for family and friends. Raised or sunken decks with well-placed seating soon become the focus of your outdoor lifestyle and it doesn't get any better than that.
- Steps and Walkways — Garden paths and stone or gravel walkways give your Broadmoor home a park-like atmosphere while they help define and delineate the beauty of blooming plants and greenery. Stairs or steps offer easier access and safe passage in sloping yards even as they add beauty. It is a design opportunity with a variety of options.
- Walls and Stone Work — Colorado is known for its unique terrain of stunning mountainside slopes and unexpected elevation changes. For homeowners in Broadmoor, it presents the opportunity to incorporate both functional and attractive retaining walls into backyard landscapes. The talented team at Jake's Designs uses natural stone to turn retaining walls into dramatic garden works of art.
The sometimes challenging climate of Colorado requires sensible landscape design ideas and applications. Xeriscaping is the ideal solution to drier climate conditions. It requires minimal supplementary water without compromising the colors and aesthetic qualities of a top-notch landscape environment. The team at Jake's Designs has years of experience working on local low-water landscape projects.
The combination of native, water-resistant plants and eye-pleasing shrubs and grasses complement your home's outdoor spaces while adding value to your property. Professionally planned xeriscape techniques take advantage of the surrounding terrain for natural and smart irrigation. The result is a low-maintenance, hardy backyard landscape you can enjoy for years to come.
Fabulous Outdoor Kitchens
Your outdoor living area is often the hub of family get-togethers and neighborhood entertainment. What better way is there to unplug or celebrate than by preparing fabulous food in an open-air setting? Outdoor kitchens are a growing trend in America and it is easy to see why.
From exceptional, built-in grills to stainless steel refrigerators to melt-in-your-mouth meat-cooking smokers, backyard barbecue gurus couldn't be happier. Jake's Designs works with homeowners to plan, construct, and choose the perfect appliances for their dream backyard kitchen. There are several benefits to adding a kitchen to your outdoor spaces.
- Versatility — Your home is unique to you so it only makes sense that what is created outside stylistically matches its indoor counterparts. You can count on Jake's Designs to help you customize the layout and elements that work best for you.
- Convenience — An outdoor kitchen eliminates the need to run back and forth from indoors to the patio when entertaining. Everything is at your fingertips while you cook allowing you to spend more time with your family or guests. Clean-up is easier too.
- Increases Home Value — A professionally designed and installed outdoor kitchen is one of the best investments homeowners can make. It maximizes your home's market appeal should you ever decide to sell.
- Expands Living Space - The proper landscape construction creates a natural flow from your house to your outdoor spaces. Your alfresco kitchen becomes another room in your home by expanding the living space.
Soothing Water Features
There is something therapeutic about the sight and sounds of a gently gurgling brook or a peaceful pond filled with colorful koi. The Broadmoor community's already idyllic setting at the base of Cheyenne Mountain is the ideal environment for carefully placed water features. Jake's Designs can help homeowners design and create their dream backyard sanctuary with custom fountains, boulder streams, or unexpected waterfalls.
Not only does trickling water invoke a sense of serenity, but it also offers a refreshing respite for birds and other native wildlife. It is a low-maintenance landscape feature you will enjoy in all seasons of the year. Water features can be as decorative as they are dramatic offering multiple character-enhancing options. From the luxury of a deck-side hot tub to a meandering mountain stream, your garden landscape will truly be an oasis you will love.
