Finding a Colorado ranch for sale in the Denver area does not necessarily mean you’ll find an unrefined landscape.  Some modern cowboys and cowgirls do up large yards prettily with landscape features that the old folks would never have dreamed about.  Accomplished Colorado businesses can help you transform your Douglas County horse property.  Want low maintenance, water happy features, special gardens, accented like rock or wood walls, fencing, or splashes of annuals and perennials?

Professional landscape designers and contractors are available to help you give thoughtful consideration to landscapes for your horse property in Sedalia, Parker, Franktown, Kiowa, Larkspur, or somewhere in Denver’s real estate area.  These educated folks are familiar with native plants, soils, terrain, meadows, wetlands, and the cottonwood groves—with soaring Rocky Mountain peaks as their backdrop.  Many have even received Excellence in Landscape awards presented by the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado (ALCC), which showcases unique landscapes in Douglas County and across the state.  For example, Valley Crest Landscape Development from Parker, Colorado was awarded for their construction of Wildlife Experience.

In consideration of the semi-arid climate, rocky soil, long winters, available water, each ranch or horse property owner can elect several options in the landscaping process—or in the renewal of existing landscape. 

Experts are ready to help with consultation, design, construction, and maintenance of landscapes including xeriscapes, hardscapes, and softscapes.  Xeriscape* is a landscaping method developed especially for arid and semiarid climates that utilizes water-conserving techniques such as the use of drought-tolerant plants, mulch, and efficient irrigation.  It also increases habitat for native bees, butterflies, and other fauna.  Hardscape refers to hard elements such as those composed of concrete, brick or stone, in addition to wood.  For instance, constructing a patio or deck is a hardscape project, as is a brick walkway, stonewall, or wooden fence.  Softscape is the living vegetation.

If any of the following features interest you, consider contacting local artisans to help you create your world outside: 

· Tree pruning, tree removal
· Landscape reclamations
· Renovation of water features
· Irrigation and sprinkler system design
· Creeks, waterfalls, water fountains, and ponds

*The word "xeriscape" was coined by the Front Range Zeriscape Task Force of the City of Denver's Water Department in 1978, combining xeros (Greek for "dry") with landscape.
