At Alive Outside Landscaping, our expertise in landscaping design and installation creates beautiful landscaping that is eye-catching for residential and business owners. Our specialists combine basic design principles, native materials, and our wealth of knowledge to design your ideal landscaping.

Landscaping is primarily made up of the combination of two different types of design: hardscaping and softscaping. Hardscaping is the implementation of man-made elements, such as patios, walkways, retaining walls, and outdoor water features. Softscaping is the use of plants, shrubs, trees, flowers, and ground cover. We work to design and install beautiful landscaping for Colorado properties in Loveland, Fort Collins, and Windsor.

What Happens During Design & Installation of Your Landscaping

After we consider all aspects of the design, we use our digital design software to create renderings for your review and approval. These true-to-design renderings aid homeowners and business owners in seeing their property exactly as it would be, once the landscaping project is completed.

After your renderings are revised to perfection, we set up an installation date. The installation phase can be more or less involved, depending on the amount of landscaping and hardscaping involved in your unique layout.

We first prepare your land and remove any existing landscaping that will not be staying. After that, we prepare your landscaping beds by shaping them. Any hardscaping is created and installed on your property before filling in your landscaping beds.

The final step is carefully laying out shrubs, trees, and plants around your beds so that we can begin planting them and finishing off the landscaping with your choice of ground cover.

When we can, we use native Colorado plants in your design. Using native plants means they are already adapted to the climate, soil, and environmental conditions. They will have the best chance of thriving and surviving in your landscaping.

5 Design Principles We Use to Create Digital Renderings

When designing your new landscaping, our professionals take into account the basic design principles that ensure your property will provide your home with great curb appeal. During the process of composing our digital design renderings, we take the ideas for both softscaping and hardscaping that you want, and manipulate them so that they create:

  • Balance- either asymmetrical or symmetrical
  • Focal points- we use major hardscaping or softscaping structures and fill in around them to draw focus to a specific element.
  • Depth- we layer different sized plants, shrubs, and trees to create depth and dimension around your property
  • Proportion- we make sure to use enough small and large pieces to create proportion to your hardscaping and home
  • Unity- all of these basic design principles combine together to create a cohesive, functional design for your property

In addition to considering basic design principles, we consider the native plants found within Fort Collins, Loveland, and Windsor, CO, so that your landscaping will thrive all year long. We work one on one with you on choosing new or mature plants, styles of shrubs, trees, and ground cover that enhance the existing aesthetics of your property.
