Designscapes Colorado History & Mission

Designscapes Colorado - Landscape Company History

Designscapes Colorado, Inc. was incorporated in 1992 and owned by Phil Steinhauer — and today is regionally recognized as a premiere design, construction, and maintenance firm serving both residential and commercial properties.

Today, Designscapes Colorado is operating in a state-of-the-art facility in Centennial, designed by Semple Brown Design and constructed by Finlay/Criss. The 14,000 square foot building located on six acres provides us the opportunity to showcase design applications as well as house our equipment and nursery stock.

Three distinct teams now comprise Designscapes Colorado: Residential Landscape Construction, Commercial Landscape Construction, and Landscape Maintenance. The firm employs over 50 salaried team members and more than 225 seasonal employees.

We are proud of our long-standing relationships of doing business in Cherry Hills, Greenwood Village, Denver Country Club, Hilltop, Castle Pines, Evergreen and the Denver Metro Area.
