Lifescape is a Denver-based professional landscape design, build and maintenance firm, providing services along the Front Range and into the mountain communities. Their team works primarily in the residential market, but they are capable of and available for commercial projects.
"No job is too small," says LeAnn Ostheimer, senior designer with the company. "We can plant a few trees, or design, build and maintain a full estate." Ostheimer explains that the typical Lifescape clientele cares about design and the spatial relationship between the interior and exterior of the home. "They want to put value and thought into their landscape," she says.
Lifescape is fully invested in the outdoor room trend. "Charles (Randy) Randolph, Lifescape’s founder, was one of the first to bring the outdoor kitchen to residences in Denver," says Ostheimer. "Now we’re getting more elaborate with it." The company ties outdoor materials to the architecture of the home, plants for four seasons of color and uses techniques such as orienting outdoor landscape elements so that they can be viewed from the inside of the home.
The firm offers full design, build and maintenance services. "It’s a great advantage to have a trained landscape architect/designer working with a client, then being able to transition to our own construction team to implement the project," Ostheimer says. The benefits of this company structure include streamlining the work process, keeping the project budget in line and reducing change orders during construction.
The Decker project, pictured above, is an example of the high-quality work performed by Lifescape. An extensive renovation of the property’s back yard incorporates elements ranging from plantings to a patio structure with a masonry "stone couch" with throw pillows and cushions and seat walls, as well as a firepit and reclaimed-wood pergola. "This is a great example of the home extending into the outdoors," explains Ostheimer.
