Material Marketing Grand Opening

It is very important that as professional landscape contractors, we dedicate time and effort into gaining more knowledge and skill sets that will help us to create beautiful, healthy landscapes for all of our clients.

Last week, Lifescape attended the Material Marketing Grand Opening event. Materials Marketing is America’s oldest, largest and only fully integrated stone manufacturer of hand-carved architectural stone and tile.” This was a great event for Lifescape Associates to network and get new ideas from interior designers, architects, builders, and engineers. Working with various disciplines can help us create a smooth transition from indoors to outdoors while matching the architectural character of a home.

If you want to enhance the beauty of your Colorado landscape with hardscapes and landscape structures that create a seamless flow of beauty, contact Lifescape Associates by calling 303-831-8310.

Add some Color to your Hardscape Projects

Driveways, pathways, walkways, stairs…they don’t always have to look so boring. Many times homeowners fail to realize that their hardscapes can be just as eye-catching as the garden. What could give you more curb appeal or visually pleasing aesthetics than attention-grabbing color? If you are still a little unsure, take a look at a few of these hardscapes:

Light Up the Landscape at Night

Now that we are experiencing shortened days and chilly nights, it is time to brighten up our landscapes to make them safer and look more interesting. In the early evening hours, take a look around your Denver area home to see what areas need some brightening up. Here are a few things to look for:

  • The sidewalk steps should be well lit for evening guests.
  • Your address number should be clearly seen.
  • Are there any areas where lighting can enhance the dramatic shapes of trees and/or structures within the landscape?
  • Are there areas where you would feel more secure if they were better lit?
  • If you are putting your home on the market soon, outdoor lighting is one of the top items that add curb appeal.

If you live in the Denver or Boulder area and need professional help designing and installing the right lighting plan for your landscape, contact Lifescape Associates by calling 303-831-8310.

 

Remember: Remove Heavy Snow from Awnings

The awnings in your landscape can work wonders in dressing up your home and/or business. Now that the snow is coming in, it is important to remember that brushing heavy snowfall off your awnings is something you want to put into practice. If the awnings on your property are not strong enough or too old to hold heavy amounts of snow, they could crack, tear or even break.

You don’t want to give the snow a chance to melt and refreeze creating ice icicles and ice blocks on top of your awnings, which then becomes a hazard to anyone under or near the awning.

Making sure you have strong structures within the landscape is key for the rough Colorado winters. You need awnings, coverings and other structures to hold up under the intense weather conditions so that you won’t have to budget for yearly repairs every time a heavy snow fall hits the Denver area.

Contact Lifescape Associates in Denver if you want quality, durability, and expert craftsmanship built into the structures, awnings and coverings in your landscape.
