2016 Face of Landscape Architecture & Construction – 5280 Home

Philip E. Steinhauer – President

For 24 years, Designscapes Colorado has been Denver’s face of landscape architecture and construction integrating landscape design, construction and maintenance.

Designscapes Colorado creates environments that capture the imagination, shaping a beautiful outdoor sanctuary perfect for the outdoor Colorado lifestyle.

Owner Phil Steinhauer founded Designscapes Colorado, building a company that desires to meet or exceed clients’ expectations. “We know that we have done this when our clients refer us to their friends and associates,,. says Steinhauer.

The team behind Designscapes Colorado is the soul of the brand. “From the landscape architects to the production team, Designscapes Colorado is where it is today because its employees work so hard to make it one of the region’s best.”

As a unique, hands-on, customer focused company, the team operates with more of a family-owned feeling, ensuring a devotion to each project that clients have come to appreciate. “Behind the team at Designscapes Colorado, there is character, heart and above all, a deep appreciation for the environment,” notes Steinhauer. “Steeped in rich Colorado traditions, I use the link to my Denver heritage to model my business. We design landscapes to fit the local environment. We think about the utilization of native species and local materials and try to develop a sustainable landscape,” he says.

The company’s desire to create a personalized landscape begins by building and maintaining extremely strong ties with the client. “We view ourselves as partners with our clients, our employees, our community and our environment,” says Steinhauer.

Landscaping in Colorado’s climate, and the many micro climates that exist along the Front Range, presents a unique set of opportunities. Blending the team’s innovative thinking and comprehensive experience, they are able to address the potential challenges of an unpredictable climate. “The creation of a garden has to transform not only the site, but also the person who lives there,” recalls Steinhauer. “I don’t think there is any better measure of success than when a client tells me they now view and enjoy their landscape in ways they never could have imagined.”

You name it, the Designscapes Colorado team is equipped to handle it. From spectacular residential and commercial design, to personalized maintenance packages, holiday lighting, landscape lighting, outdoor living spaces and even snow removal, Designscapes Colorado turns visions into reality.
