Sage & Stone Landscape, LLC is owned and operated by Mark Doyle, a 30 year Colorado resident and has offered landscape contracting and design services since 2004. In late 2018 we relocated to Arvada after many years of being based in Broomfield. We are a sustainably focused design-build company specializing in landscape and garden installation, landscape renovations, xeriscaping, artisan stonework, walkways, walls, and patios. We install durable, low maintenance landscapes and features which will provide many years of functionality and enjoyment. A well designed, installed, and maintained landscape not only provides immediate benefits but should also be considered a good long-term investment!
Our goal is to build long lasting relationships with our clients. No doubt, landscaping is hard work but should be fun and rewarding too!
Our Sustainable Landscaping Practices
Considering our resource-intensive lifestyles, landscapes are one place where many people can give back to Mother Nature and lessen our impact on the planet. Sustainable landscaping is an evolving field that goes beyond some of the better known disciplines such as xeriscaping. Sustainability and durability go hand in hand. Landscapes that are 'built to last' help to spread out their inputs over many years. Here are some other practices we strive to follow that will make your landscape as sustainable as possible:
Over both the short and long term, a sustainable landscape will require less maintenance and thus save you time and money.
Working with Sage & Stone
The process begins with a visit to your property to assess the site and discuss your wants and ideas. This typically will take 45-90 minutes. The initial visit carries no charge or obligation. We ask lots of questions, listen closely, and will likely make a few suggestions. If it is helpful we can look at other landscapes or get ideas from books, magazines, or websites.
Once we have determined a level of mutual interest, we can then move on to the next steps; discussing your budget, timelines, and providing an estimate or design proposal for your project. While we are happy to provide free estimates, we do ask in return that you are prepared to discuss your general budgetary goals and constraints, as well as a timetable for the project. We prefer to discuss estimates and proposals in person(at a 2nd visit) versus emailing these items. Keep in mind that installations can be phased or broken up into separate jobs if necessary.
Ultimately, our goal is for you and us to develop a level of trust and comfort so that the project will go smoothly and you will be satisfied with the end result. We warranty all workmanship for a period of one year and will provide follow up visits as well as ongoing support after that.
