Ready To Get Started On Your Dream Landscape?
Add Character With Innovative Hardscaping
Well-balanced landscape design combines the beauty of your gardens and other softscape elements with non-living landscape components. Hardscaping serves as the foundation for your overall landscape. It offers both practical and ornamental applications designed to define or to enhance. Hardscaping options cover a wide range of features including patios, driveways, and retaining walls.
Jake's Designs uses a variety of natural materials like rocks, stones, and brick to meet the needs of your hardscape structure. These man-made elements provide focus and contrast to existing organic areas. They also have an impact on the unique aesthetics of your landscaping as well as offering functional solutions to land challenges.
Be Water-Wise With Smart Xeriscaping
Colorado's arid climate doesn't mean homeowners have to compromise on long-lasting landscape beauty. The professionals at Jake's Designs are experienced in creating attractive low-water solutions. They expertly incorporate the colorful blooms and greenery you love with smart irrigation principles. The benefits of choosing xeriscape landscape design are numerous. Here are a few:
- Conserves water — Xeriscaping your yard with the right trees, shrubs, and plants drastically reduces annual water usage.
- Less maintenance — This type of landscaping requires minimal watering, pruning, and general maintenance.
- Eco-friendly — Xeriscaping is environmentally sustainable and responsible.
- Versatile native plantings — Xeriscape landscaping highlights and preserves Colorado's flora with native ornamental grasses and stunning flowering plants
- Increases property value — A well-landscaped home significantly improves property value should you decide to sell.
Jake's Designs is one of the top xeriscaping companies in the state. Your Star Ranch home landscape will thrive.
Stay Cool With Refreshing Water Features
Nothing provides more texture and character to your backyard haven than a refreshing water feature. It is hard to beat the soothing sound of a gurgling stream or the tranquility of a colorful koi pond. The overall beauty of your landscape design is enhanced by the addition of water working in harmony with your property's other natural elements. A well-planned water feature gives a one-of-a-kind ambiance to your outdoor spaces.
Homeowners can choose from a broad selection of unique water feature designs to meet every budget and style preference. From recessed waterways to stone fountains to natural spas, the benefits of including a water feature in your landscape plans are plentiful.

Entertain With Style in Your Own Outdoor Kitchen
One of the most popular and useful backyard landscape trends is an outdoor kitchen. The built-in barbecue grills of patios past are reaching a whole new and exciting level. It is a great way to expand your home's living spaces while sharing quality outdoor fun with family and friends. Today's alfresco kitchens often feature oversized grills, gourmet appliances, and top-of-the-line countertops.
Jake's Designs' expert design and construction team works with homeowners to explore and determine the ideal placement for your outdoor kitchen. They offer a knowledgeable assessment of the best materials and appliances to use and know how to install them for optimum convenience and safety. Before long, your backyard kitchen will be a central gathering and eating place for your family and friends.
Make Memories Around a Welcoming Fire Pit
There is nothing more comforting than the crackling, popping sounds of an open fire. Fire pits transform outdoor living spaces into evening sanctuaries perfect for story-telling and cocktails. Your backyard can go from mediocre to sizzling when you include a fire pit feature in your landscape design. No matter what the season, the mesmerizing flicker of fire and the cozy warmth of social sharing around it are reason enough.
Homeowners can choose from either wood-burning or gas-burning fire features. Each has different advantages, requirements, and drawbacks. The professionals at Jake's Designs work with you to determine which option works best on your Star Ranch property. Fire pits can also be customized and adapted to fit in with any patio or backyard environment. There is no better way to create lasting memories than around the campfire setting of your own fire feature.
