We are a design company dedicated to excellence in landscape design. All of our designs take into account the unique site conditions that Colorado has to offer. This includes the use of low water or Xeric plantings, designing areas that are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing, and designs that fit into a budget and that can be implemented in phases if necessary. We specialize in designs for "Do-It-Yourself" installations.
Dan started mowing lawns and installing small landscape projects in the mid 1980's. During high school he installed landscape for companies specializing in water features, retaining walls, patios, and irrigation systems. After graduating from Colorado State University in 1995, he worked for "Design and Build" landscape companies. There he honed his landscape design skills and learned the industry. In 2002 Dan started Black Forest Landscape Design Studio L.L.C., specializing in designs for the "Do-It-Yourself" home owner.
We hired Dan to develop a landscape design for our home. We have an odd shaped lot so it took a great deal of creativity on his part to come up with something that looks good. Dan did a fantastic job. He delivered the plan on-time, has a superior knowledge of plants and how to incorporate them into an overall design, and was very affordable. I recommend Dan without hesitation.
