About Colorado Nature Design

Colorado Nature Design is a custom landscape/design build construction company. ln business since 1990 CND specializes in the “hardscape” aspect of landscape installation. From custom stonework, flagstone and rock walls, to native boulder terracing we value our client’s ideas and opinions in what they are Colorado Nature Landscaping Trucklooking for in their future landscape project. For 31 years we have been creating “natural footprints” throughout the region which provides our clients many years of enjoyment and a great investment. Our desire to be the best at what we do, we believe success is paramount to our broad client base. Our attitude is confident and our work ethic is superior in what we do… and how we do it. The process starts with a complimentary jobsite introduction touring the area and going over those ideas. The next step is the design phase where those ideas are put on paper to help the client visualize the work to be done. It is important for Kenny’s client to feel comfortable with the suggested ideas and the “why.” Budgets are established based on sq. footages/material costs and plant design. Having a budget range is very helpful in the design process so ideas and costs can be marginalized. Combining natural stone and materials with environmentally friendly products and indigenous plantings a pleasing harmonizing setting is created and enjoyed.

Kenny SmithKenny Smith, owner/founder of Colorado Nature Design, has always had a practical yet creative eye for his designs. He says there are “focal points” where the dollars spent are most rewarded yet other areas of design should complement those primary “focal points” privacy issues or aesthetic appeal being the primary uses. He listens to the needs and ideas of the client or starts from scratch with professional ideas which the client will enjoy for many years to come. Kenny believes in buying “in state” materials when possible to support the local economy. All plantings from trees to perennials are hand-picked from select local nurseries to ensure quality/color and shape.

Kenny’s love for the Colorado outdoors and its beauty has evolved into a lifelong dream while sharing his passion through his work. He would encourage you to look at his company portfolio and perhaps get some ideas for your future projects. We work in the mountain suburban area of Denver, along with the mountain communities of Breckenridge, Winter Park, Grand Lake and other communities in Summit and Grand Counties.

Client Testimonials

We selected Kenny and Colorado Nature Design because they are professionals who know what they are doing and can be counted on to complete the job just as they promise. The results are outstanding! We not only got beautiful new walls and steps, they solved a drainage problem at the back of our house. They were wonderful to work with and the cost was extremely reasonable. So we highly recommend Kenny and his great team.

We are delighted with our new retaining walls. Kenny and crew did a terrific job replacing our ancient railroad tie and rock walls, and helped us landscape an unfinished space under our cantilever. They were incredibly professional, responsive, communicative and generally great to have around. And their work looks amazing – like having a whole new yard. Worth noting that despite the pouring rain, they did the job when they said they would do it and finished in even less time than expected. Remarkable!
