2020 Year in Review

Home / News / Events and Happenings / 2020 Year in Review

In a year defined by murder hornets, record-breaking hurricanes, rampant wildfires and that pesky thing called a global COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 was certainly a year full of surprises. But it wasn’t all bad, and at Lifescape Colorado, we are able to celebrate a few small wins that brought smiles to our faces and kept our crew of hard-working (socially distanced) professionals busy all year long. 

As 2021 approaches, we will continue to focus on world-class service and passionately pursuing excellence in everything we do. Thank you to our clients, our unwavering team and collaborators who all contributed to such a great year. We look forward to a new year ahead with you!  


Get Dirty with Lifescape 

After postponing our favorite late-spring event, we were finally able to (safely) gather in August for Get Dirty with Lifescape. This outdoor event brought 50 of Denver’s top design experts out for an evening of dirty martinis while learning how to properly plant beautiful summer containers. Not a bad way for our fearless leader, Michael Hupf, to spend his birthday!  



We are humbled by the local and national awards for numerous projects designed, constructed and cared for by our talented team and completed in 2018 and 2019.
