We had Shane complete a design and install / implement the following items:
– Re-grading the yard
– Extending downspouts underground and installing a French drain
– Irrigation system installation
– Turf, mulch/rocks and a Flagstone walkway
Although our yard was a relatively small project for Shane’s company, he was able to fit us in almost as soon as we decided to go forward with the plan and still exceeded our expectations in terms of the attention we received throughout. Vince, the foreman, and his crew showed up on time every morning, were friendly and professional, and did great work! Vince explained everything with the irrigation system to us as this was the first time we had an irrigation system. He also brought to light any issues that could arise from our 100+ year old house (i.e. old water lines/pipes, low pressure/water flow to the irrigation system, etc) and him and Shane came up with viable solutions for every issue that arose. Both Vince and Shane were open to minor changes that we wanted while the crew was already working at the house and outlined the pros/cons of these changes, and ultimately supported what we wanted for our house.
The project was completed in approx. one week and Vince returned a couple days later to change out the irrigation heads as Shane came up with a better layout given our low water pressure/flow issues. Shane and Renee followed up with us after the project was completed to ensure we were happy and understood everything with our irrigation and drainage systems. We absolutely love our new yard and will definitely use Shane and Denver Landscaping for our future projects. We would highly recommend this company for any of your landscaping needs!
It was such a pleasure to work with you and I so appreciate all the time, thought, planning and dedication you put into your work. I’d like to hire you again next summer to work on my front yard.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and take care of yourself.

Another factor that made it a pleasure to work with Shane was the way in which he respected and valued our needs and opinions. We learned during this process that there is an n enormous amount of decisions to make. We appreciated Shane’s ability to collaborate in a way that allowed us to integrate his considerable expertise into our vision of our yard. We also appreciated that the people Shane picked to work on various aspects of our yard were also of the highest quality and treated our family with the utmost respect.
It is now months after the completion of our project. We can honestly say that our landscaping project has gone far beyond our expectations as far as the positive influence it has had on our family’s lives. Dinners outside have become a way of life. Waking up in the morning and walking outside is an inspiration. It is a treat to watch our children embark on exciting landscape adventures. We continue to be amazed at the daily discoveries of beauty that our yard has become. And all of this is greatly enhanced knowing that Shane continues to be readily available to provide his time and expertise to ensure out yard continues to evolve.
We happily and unhesitatingly recommend Shane.

We wanted to eliminate all grass turf and replace it with ornamental plants and shrubbery, and add a new sidewalk through the center of the yard to the street with an accent stone column on each side.
We also wanted to incorporate a soothing natural stone water feature and blend some large native Colorado moss rock boulders into the design.
Shane took our ideas and with his expertise and guidance, came up with a stunning plan. We reviewed the design and after a few minor changes, decided to proceed.
After a few weeks of diligent work, Cascade Design finished our project, incorporating everything we wanted, including a new high efficiency underground irrigation system for the nearly 200 new plants that were put in.
Now, early into the second growing season, the plants are erupting in full spring bloom with all the beautiful colors that we wanted. Passers by frequently stop to admire this stunning transformation and comment on how nice it looks.
We are completely satisfied with the design and outcome of our new front yard. It is low-maintenance, and uses only a fraction of the water that used to be required for the old grass turf.
Shane Meyer runs an honest business and he stands behind his work. We are happy to recommend Shane and his professional crew at Cascade Design without hesitation, to anyone who may be considering them for landscape design, installation or maintenance service.

We were further impressed with the construction and implementation phase. Again you were very thorough and made sure your employees exhibited the same qualities in their workmanship. Your time and schedule estimates were also realistic. We had a few snags along the way, as all projects do, and you handled every matter with the utmost concern and courtesy. We have worked with many contractors on home remodeling projects and your professionalism and level-headedness is far above the rest.
After the plants were installed, you and your employees continued to monitor our yard to insure each tree, shrub and plant was established. If they were stressed you did what it took to make things right. We have been very pleased with the maintenance plan as well.
Lastly, the work of Cascade Design is a great value. We were impressed with the materials and workmanship for the price. Another area in which we appreciate your attention to detail was in the project cost proposal. You detailed all costs in the initial contract. There were no surprise costs as the project progressed. It was so refreshing to have a project actually stay on budget.
We would highly recommend Cascade Design to anyone looking to find a quality person and company to complete their landscaping project. Shane, you really treated our yard like it was your own. Thank you.
I still give your name out regularly, I hope we are sending you some business.

While the seasonal weather wasn’t quite right, your crew did great work. Bob and his crew worked diligently for two weeks digging a four foot trench for our lovely brick wall in front. It was finished before the snow. It was a little disconcerting but Christmas Eve day was sunny and fairly warm and your crew poured all our concrete in front and back. By tea time (4.00pm) our guests were able to walk around the new concrete and the crew was there tiding up until 6 or 7 that evening. When we returned from midnight church services the weather was clear and cold, but sometime between midnight and 6am it snowed and someone in your crew returned and covered all the concrete. AMAZING!! We were set until spring thaw in late April.
Your crew (Vince, Andy, Mario, Bob, and Eliot) is always polite and does a good job of sweeping and straightening up before leaving. They were good at closing the gates each evening so our dog didn’t wander.
Your are generally accessible for communication an sometimes just showing up spontaneously to check on progress – like the Saturday morning you came and did extra – fixing our loose telephone wires so the phone would work again.
You could listen to our concerns and ideas and do what we asked – a simple north gate, an inside latch on the gate, using my Williamsburg gate chain and ball.
Thank you for all your work and we look forward to visits for sprinkler maintenance in the fall and spring.
