The Lasting Beauty of Xeriscaping
Xeriscape landscaping allows homeowners to incorporate their favorite garden blooms and greenery with water-wise practices. The experts at Jake's Designs are experienced at creating attractive outdoor environments with Colorado's sometimes arid climate in mind.

From creative stonework to eye-pleasing rock plantings, your outdoor living spaces can be customized to compliment your home while adding value to your property. Jake's design team offers homeowners a wide range of xeriscape options. You will be impressed by how stunning your environmentally-friendly landscape can be and how little maintenance is required.
The Versatility of Hardscaping
Hardscaping provides definition and organization to your backyard landscape. It enhances the green, living aspects of your outdoor space in either decorative or practical ways. It can lead visitors through different areas of your property or add a whimsical element to your landscape oasis. These are a few of the many hardscaping options Jake's Designs can incorporate into your yard.
- Patios — Your patio often serves as the hub of activity for family and friends. It is a welcoming place to relax and socialize. Patios extend your home's living spaces and can be personalized to specific needs and tastes.
- Walkways — Nothing compliments the natural elements of your landscape than meandering, stone walkways or pathways. Whether you choose brick, gravel, or attractive pave stones, walkways connect and provide a natural flow from one aspect of your landscape to another.
- Steps and Stairs — Stairways and steps create visual interest even as they provide safe passage and access. Landscape steps can be constructed from a variety of materials adding aesthetic beauty and character. Jake's Designs can help make elevation transitions a thing of beauty.
- Water Features — One of the most pleasing aspects of hardscaping is the addition of a water feature on your property. Your Kissing Camel backyard spaces become a mesmerizing and peaceful haven when you include a pond, water garden, or stream to your landscape plans.
The Enchantment of Outdoor Lighting
Well-designed landscape lighting does more than simply illuminate the way for passers-by. A properly-lit home transforms the dark and unfamiliar into a friendly and inviting sanctuary. It creates a warm and relaxing ambiance as well as providing focus to specific landscape features. There is something subtly magical about coming home after a long day to a landscape filled with light.
The right outdoor lighting keeps pathways and stairways safe after the sun goes down. Your water features become more interesting and unique in an illuminated atmosphere. Of course, your outdoor living doesn't have to end at night. Patios and porches shine as a beacon for entertaining or hanging out with family when they are invitingly lighted. Driveway lighting serves as a guide and establishes perimeters.
Place versatile string lights along garden edges or wrap the strings around columns or banisters for a touch of whimsy and romantic glow. Tree lights are great for casting unexpected shadows while overhead lighting keeps your outdoor kitchen functional after dark. The experienced team at Jake's Designs works with homeowners to find the best illumination options that work for them.
The Tranquility of Water Features
The idyllic community of Kissing Camel is surrounded by nature's finest gifts so it only makes sense to incorporate the same into your outdoor living spaces. Installing a landscape water feature helps bring nature right to your doorstep and it doesn't get any better than that. Water adds movement, sound, and texture to your backyard contributing to the overall quality of the environment.
Flowing water soothes while attracting native birds and wildlife to your property. Jake's Designs' understands and has years of experience working with the often challenging Colorado terrain and weather. They can expertly design and install custom water features to meet specific needs, budgets, and space constraints. Whether your dream is to fall asleep to the sound of a boulder stream or to soak in a hot tub under the stars, Jake's Designs is ready to turn your dream into reality.
The Creativity of Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are thought of as functional and necessary aspects of landscaping. It is true they serve a practical purpose but it doesn't mean they have to be boring. Retaining walls can enhance your landscape even as it does its job. From living walls to raised planting beds and seating, erosion control has never looked so good.
The team at Jake's Designs uses a variety of natural materials to turn an ordinary retaining wall into an aesthetically-pleasing feature without compromising its functionality. Decorative details or the seamless combination of the wall with your yard's other landscape features produces stunning results you might find yourself wanting to brag about.
