Today marks the launch of the Elati Design Guild, a group of Colorado-based professionals from all facets of the design community. Our mission is to highlight the craftsmanship, integrity and willingness of this community to work in harmony with one another to complete remarkable projects.
As defined by Wikipedia, a guild is an association of artisans or merchants who oversee the practice of their craft in a particular town. The Guild’s home base, www.ElatiDesignGuild.com, is the platform where we will share exactly what it takes to bring our skills together, each Guild member speaking to their craft.

We hope you enjoy the Elati Design Guild!
Given the attention we pay to our outdoor spaces, outdoor kitchens, water features, landscaping and resource management in Colorado, it’s wise to rely on a landscape professional when it’s time to remodel or build that dream environment. Hiring a professional to design, build and maintain your home’s landscape can save both time and money, and assure that the latest sustainability techniques are used.
At Lifescape, our landscape architects often collaborate with an architect, interior designer and general contractor; the synergy between the various groups helps create a cohesive, well-planned design, with smooth implementation and fewer cost overruns.
Professionals have access to the latest and highest quality materials, which means your project will be crafted for top performance, beauty and long life.
Lifescape landscape professionals are there long after the initial work is done to provide long-term maintenance and stand behind our products. Make sure you work with a well-established organization that carries industry certifications. An award-winning company has a proven track record of excellence.
A trained, experienced design team will consider the local climate, seasonal changes, soil types and more in order to select the right plant for the right place. Using proper construction techniques, mindful product sourcing and cutting-edge water management methods, the Lifescape team will make sure your project is both beautiful and sustainable.
Spring is the busiest time of year for landscape installations and design-build projects. As the temperatures warm up, Denver residents are thinking about outdoor entertaining and ways to improve their landscape. Because of the influx of calls that landscape companies receive in the spring, it may take longer to get started on and complete your project.
Winter, on the other hand, tends to be the slowest season. As we begin 2018, you can get a jump start on your landscape design and construction project and benefit from having the undivided attention of experienced architects.
How Our Design-Build Process Works
Our landscape architects at Lifescape Colorado have more than 40 years of experience in designing and building custom residential and commercial projects. We begin the design-build process by walking the project site with our client to gather information about goals and discuss high-level design ideas. We then take this information to draft a conceptual landscape plan that is within the client’s budget. Once the design and construction plans are approved by the client, we begin construction. Each project has a foreman and operations manager on site to ensure that construction goes smoothly.
As you can see, multiple steps go into the landscape design-build process, and getting started early in the year will help to expedite your project.
Benefits of Beating the Spring Rush with Your Design-Build Project
Another advantage to beating the spring rush with your landscape design and build project is that you’ll get to maximize your enjoyment of the finished product. By starting early, you can begin enjoying your new installation as soon as the temperatures in Colorado begin to warm up. Being proactive and starting your landscape project in January or February can also save you money.
Don’t wait! Take advantage of this slower season in landscape design and contact us at Lifescape Colorado to learn more about our design-build process and get your project started early.
Happy Holidays from Lifescape Colorado!
As another year comes to a close, we’re reflecting on the various clients throughout Colorado that we’ve had the pleasure of helping in 2017. We’re thankful that you’ve entrusted us to design, construct, and maintain your beautiful gardens, landscapes, and hardscapes. We hope that we’ve been able to add a little beauty to your life and a little enjoyment to your lifestyle!
As you gather with family and friends to celebrate the holidays, we hope you’ll take a moment to appreciate the beauty that the Colorado landscape offers. Stroll through the neighborhood to admire the holiday light displays and cozy up with a loved one by your outdoor fire pit.
We’re honored to be able to say that we’ve been serving as a trusted landscape advisor since 1976, and we look forward to continuing to serve clients throughout Colorado for many years to come! Thank you for allowing us to do what we love.
From our family to yours, happy holidays from Lifescape Colorado!
One of our favorite ways to give back during the holiday season is to adopt a family in need, and we’re grateful to be able to sponsor a local family this year through the Tennyson Center for Children.
What is the Tennyson Center for Children?
The Tennyson Center for Children is committed to giving Colorado children that have experienced abuse, neglect, or trauma a second chance. For more than a century, this local non-profit organization has been providing children and families with healing through its community-based, school, and residential programs.
What is Operation Santa?
Because many of the families served don’t have the financial means to give gifts during the holidays, the Tennyson Center for Children hosts Operation Santa each year. By participating in Operation Santa, local businesses and members of the Denver community adopt a family and help fulfill their holiday wishlists. Each child in the family will receive three gifts, and the adults will receive a family gift or help with needs they may have.
The Tennyson Center for Children offers several opportunities to get involved with Operation Santa. Adopting a cottage, classroom, or program is a way that you can keep Operation Santa around throughout the year, and the ways that you can help will be customized to your desired giving level. Contact the Tennyson Center for Children to learn more!
We can honestly say that our holiday season has become a little brighter by being able to participate in Operation Santa this year. Please contact us at Lifescape Colorado to learn more about how you can get involved with this wonderful local non-profit.
