There’s No Place Like Home 7

What if you can’t choose between downtime in the elements and getting cozy at home? What if you didn’t have to?

Come summertime, Coloradans aren’t just living for the outdoors, they’re living in it. But for those of us living at 5,280, there’s just one tiny problem, and it goes by the name of traffic

Luckily, Four Elements Landscape & Outdoor Living excels in merging the best of both worlds right in your backyard. What started as a small family-owned business over 25 years ago has evolved into the reputable landscape design company that stands today. What’s more impressive, even through the years, Four Elements has stayed true to its grassroots beginnings by eliciting its inspiration from nature’s beauty. Canterberry Crossing is one such example.

Designed as a self-maintaining oasis that would evoke the same effortless splendor found in our Rockies, the home was transformed from a 20-year-old rundown lot with a pool to a sophisticated sanctuary with lush landscape and abundant space that could be used for entertainment.

Four Elements president John Van understood that it was important to his clients to have a place where friends and family could come together and relax in the outdoors. Building on the homeowners’ vision, Van adorned their concept with a custom firepit and seating wall, pondless water feature, custom composite decking, synthetic turf, and LED lighting.

So while most Coloradans are sitting in their Subarus, inching along I-70’s pavement just to get a glimpse of that mountain majesty, Van’s clients at Canterberry Crossing are likely enjoying a glass of red wine in the company of colorful flowers and full trees. For them, Colorado’s natural environment and the convenience of home no longer have to be mutually exclusive.
