Mesa, Delta, Montrose, Ouray, San Miguel and Gunnison Counties
Compiled by Curtis Swift, Yvette Henson, and Eric McPhail, Colorado State University Extension
These lists were initially started due to the need for a list of landscape professionals who had the required experience and knowledge with the design and construction of low water requiring landscapes. While these include professionals with low water landscape experience, these lists will be expanded to include 'Green Industry' professionals providing other services.
The evidence these firms provided was not verified by Colorado State University. When considering hiring a landscape architect, landscape designer, landscape contractor, or irrigation system designer we would seriously suggest you have them provide the documentation for the claims they have made. Calls to several of their clients would be helpful in identifying the right company for your job.
1. The services of a Colorado Licensed Landscape Architect (LA) are required by Colorado State Statute on ALL LANDSCAPE related infrastructure to include landscape and site layout, grading, drainage, and planting plans with the except of residential landscape design services for single- and multi-family residential properties of four or fewer units not including common areas. Further information on this statute is available on-line.
2. Residential landscape designs for single- and multi-family residential properties of four or fewer units that do not include common areas can be developed by either a Landscape Architect or a Landscape Designer.
