Client Satisfaction

Says it All

We constantly strive to provide exceptional customer support and landscape services. Read why so many satisfied customers are choosing Environmental Designs time and again.

Environmental Designs were efficient, fast, responsive, and most importantly, installed a beautiful yard for us. They also continually came back when we had issues. They phased our project for financial feasibility and were easy to work as we changed our minds on the design. There might be less expensive landscapers out there, but Environmental Designs is worth every penny as they have replaced trees, fixed drainage (hail damage did a number to our brand new yard), and have been very easy to work with. They show up when they say they will and finish on time. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

Amanda – Highlands Ranch, Co.

We have had the same Environmental Designs designer consult on our landscaping for the past 9 years. Her designs are beautiful and sustainable. She has a gift for layering on new projects as though they were always a part of the original plan – and her most recent work for us this spring looks wonderful. When people see our yard, they rave about the landscaping!

Kelly – Golden, Co.

Excellent Company. Very professional! I hired EDI 16 years ago at my new home to landscape my back yard! The owner himself did a professional job and still owns the company to this day! (That is a rare trait these days!) I worked with employees on both projects who are exceptional with standards that are second to none. EDI just recently completed a landscaping enhancement to my latest home, which turned out exactly as I had planned. I would hire this company over and over again and refer them to my friends and co-workers. You can’t go wrong with EDI!

Pam – Parker, Co.

We hired Environmental Designs to transform our backyard from dirt to a space for the kids top paly and the family to hang out. They did a tremendous job. Their team helped guide the entire project flawlessly. Whenever there were issues, they quickly found resolutions. And throughout the whole process, our lead crew member helped value engineer the project by suggesting less costly material and design alternatives. The crew worked diligently and we were also impressed by the subcontractors. Overall, we are very happy with the work done by Environmental Designs and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.

Matt -Louisville, Co.

I dreamed of a beautiful mountain retreat in my backyard for years. Environmental Designs helped my dream come true and more. I now have an incredible flag stone sitting area surrounded by boulders, timbers, and trees. The elevated berms give my yard dimension. The trees and shrubs give me the privacy I wanted. Environmental Designs were professional and honest. They didn’t leave until my yard was just the way I wanted it. Love them.

Theresa – Brighton, Co.

Our backyard was a square of grass and a fence, so we hired Environmental Designs to create something for us from scratch. We requested a dining space, water feature and a fort pit – thinking there was o way they could accomplish all three. But, they did – and more – and it looks amazing! Environmental Designs was easy to work with, and everything was done on time and at the budget they quoted. We would hire them again in an instant (and we will, as soon as were ready to landscape the front yard.)

Tim – Stapleton, Co.

Environmental Designs won the contract at Eaton Senior Communities by understanding the culture and creating a major landscaping and irrigation renovation plan within a short deadline. Eaton was able to take advantage of Denver’s Water Irrigation Efficiency Program and with their financial support, ended up reducing summer irrigation water consumption by 40-50%. While more hardscaping replaced some of Eaton’s bluegrass, the overall impressions is a park-like setting with may trees, shrubs, and perennials. We continue to work with Environmental Designs for our landscaping needs.
