  9. 9. Cascading waterfalls, reflections of the mountainrange, and the serene movement of fish in clearwater are just a few of the amenities of this privateresidence’s water features. Building a series ofponds and waterfalls requires suitable design,quality components and technique, and a teamcommitted to precision in installation. Waterfeatures placed purposefully in a landscapeprovide a dynamic element to what is usually astatic design. They provide a sense of calm andtranquility in the landscape. Our teamaccomplished this by amplifying nature and usinginnovative methods in both design andconstruction, while respecting the environmentand its natural contributions to the designedlandscape.Rushing down the flanks of Ptarmigan Mountainand through the meadow, two cascadingwaterfalls greet the visitor upon arrival to the Private Residence - Summit County. COresidence. Lined by aspens, evergreens andflowering shrubs, the upper streams mimic the wildand untamed nature of many of the nearbynatural mountain streams. The organic series ofwater features were designed to bring nativeelements adjacent to outdoor living areas. Inaccordance with GreenCO BMPs, a recirculatingsystem of water was used to prevent stagnantwater and algae build-up. In addition, theaeration of the system is wind-powered by anon-site windmill. The implementation team facedthe construction challenge of involving live waterfrom an adjacent stream to feed the waterfeatures and irrigation system. The team visuallycoupled the two sources of water seamlessly intoone, harmonious body of water. Theaccomplishment of three ponds, three multi-levelcascading waterfalls and two meanderingmoss-rock streams provide an overall sense ofplace that reflects the natural landscape of theRocky Mountain region.
  10. 10. As one approaches the main entrance of thismountain home, trickling water is heard weepingfrom a wall into a small natural pond located inthe front yard. The pond spills into a flowing streamwith boulder drops that meander under the stoneresidence hallway, which connects the masterbedroom with the main home. The stream thenflows into a large natural pond overlooking theGore Mountain Range. The views from thebackyard are breathtaking. A large gatheringspace located on the edge of the pondincorporates a rustic stone fire pit. From the fire pitarea, you can see the mountain range reflectedin a nearby pond. Water from another mountainstream rushes around you, flowing into the pondnear the base of the fire pit.To achieve the natural look of streams and pondsin this high altitude environment, our team utilizedcareful site design, specialized construction Private Residence - Summit County. COtechniques, and quality components. By usingthe proper GreenCO best managementpractices and minimizing damage on the existinglandscape, we were able to meet the designintent of the client without sacrificing thesurrounding landscape. Special care was given topreserve native grasses and aspen stands withinthe landscape.By designing a custom re-circulating pumpsystem, water is deliberately collected andpumped to the heads of both streams to preventalgae build-up and create active natural filtrationwithin the ponds. The traffic noise from StateHighway 9, heard in the distance, is completelyeliminated in the back yard when both streamsare flowing at full capacity. Blending theaesthetics of two ponds and two multi-levelcascading waterfalls with a waterfall runningunderneath the residence further enhanced thestunning natural beauty of this Rocky Mountainhome.
  11. 11. As you wrap around the corner of East Vail ValleyDrive, you are welcomed to Manor Vail Lodge bya colorful perennial garden surrounding anengraved stone entrance monument. The lodge islocated at the base of Golden Peak at VailMountain. When you enter through the gates, abeautiful large park comes into view. The sound ofwater flowing within Gore Creek travelsthroughout the courtyard landscape andcompliments the peaceful aesthetics of the wellkept grounds. The design objective given by theowner was to build a usable open space park thatis reminiscent of a garden befitting a statelyManor House. However, this is not just any park; itis unique because most of the open space isactually a large roof garden. It was built on top ofa parking structure located in the center of theManor Vail Lodge building complex.Topsoil depths ranged from 8 inches to 4 feet andwere transported and installed on site to createthe growing media of the park above theconcrete structure. Native ornamental shrubs andperennial beds enclose and protect the largeopen lawn area designed for outdoor events. Apublic heated paver pathway runs through thecentral park and makes its way under a largearched breezeway. The pathway then connectsto the regional bike trail along Gore Creek.Outdoor pools and sport amenities were alsoincorporated in the overall design.GreenCOs Best Management Practices wereimplemented with high altitude specific planting Manor Vail - Vail. COdesign, the use of xeric plants and turf, and theprotection of large native trees on site throughoutthe landscape construction process. The existingirrigation was modified to include drip irrigation toevery planted tree and shrub for proper irrigationefficiency. A big challenge was balancing plantneeds for water versus the drainage systemsinstalled by others over the roof portion of thegarden. After design and installation, the finallandscape is an elegant space that is inharmony with the local Vail Valley climate.
  12. 12. As a collaborative endeavor by the localmunicipality, several private businesses, andcountless volunteers, Silvanas Community Gardenin Silverthorne, CO is truly the result of a teameffort. The garden is a place where education,expression, and community are fostered throughthe development of this communal amenity.Strategically located next to the RecreationCenter and Rainbow Park, the community gardensits on a ¼ acre of town owned land. Ourcompany was instrumental in the design, layout,and implementation of this public space.USDA research shows that the average distance avegetable travels from the fields to the dinnertable is 1,500 miles. By letting children assist in the Silvanas Community Garden - Silverthorne, COcommunity garden they gain a sense of the timeand energy required to grow their own food, andthe sense of accomplishment that comes with it.A childrens specific garden was constructed forthis purpose. There were also plots dedicated tothe local 4H club, Girl Scout Troop, and theHispanic "La Vida Sana" group of mothers throughthe Summit Prevention Alliance.From concept to reality, our team of designersand installers were the backbone behind SilvanasCommunity Garden. We stressed the importanceof establishing a good base of plant mix andorganics to successfully grow vegetables at 8,700elevation. An easily accessible system of bothraised planting beds and in-ground plots was theend product. While relatively new to thecommunity, the garden has already provided ahealthy, inexpensive source for food for areafamilies. In its first year, public interest was so highthat 30 beds were granted, with over 25 peopleon the waiting list. The community garden hasallowed people to be closer to nature, andallowed them to interact with each other in asocially meaningful and physically productiveway.
  13. 13. The use of annuals in wildflowers, planters, andborders adds a layer of festivity to the majesticmountain setting of the Running W Ranch. Findingsummer long color in high altitude gardening is amarvel on its own. The long winters, unpredictableweather, and the harsh effects of 9,000 plus feetcreate a challenge for all flora. Neils Luncefordhas put more than thirty years into developing awildflower mix that will flourish at High Altitude inthe rocky native soils. The seed mix used along thedriveway is an exclusive blend called the SummitCounty Annual Mix. This mixture of cold hardyannual seeds has evolved along with thecompany season after season as we strivetowards a perfect blend of colors to last thesummer.One of the owners main objectives was to havetheir guest greeted by an abundance of color.The main entrance of the residence is punctuatedwith various planters overflowing with colorfulannuals such as bidens, Marguerite daisies, wavepetunias, and lobelia. The colors used in theplanters are complimentary to the more loosedisplay of wildflowers surrounding their feet.In contrast to the main entrance with broad Running W Ranch - Summit County. COsweeps of color, the patio area utilizes smallersplashes of color. In order to achieve an air ofrelaxation without losing color, we designed andinstalled narrow color borders, smaller baskets andplanters, and fewer wildflowers. The borderplantings of yarrow, daisies, California Poppies,and others soften the transition between the patioand the building using a mixture of annuals andperennials for maximum impact. The color palettefor the patio area focuses on different hues of red,yellow, and blue. Color specialists feel that thebalance of these colors helps to create arestorative environment.The design and use of annuals for color hashelped us achieve beautiful and appropriatesettings throughout the grounds of the Running WRanch. Through years of experience with HighAltitude Gardens and careful attention to detailsNeils Lunceford created a sophisticated colordesign reflecting both celebration and relaxation.
