This Boulder, Colorado remodel needed to direct water away from the home’s foundation. The landscape design needed to be both functional and pleasing to the eye. We incorporated channel drains, walls, and materials that have a dual function to direct water but also appeal to the updated look of the home.
» With this house on a hill, we needed to find a way to help move the water around the house and away from the foundation.
» Make the remodel of the front yard fit in with the new aesthetics of the house
» Increase overall curb appeal from the street
» Add a practical space to the backyard
