Elizabeth Street Garden
Located on the grounds of Denver’s first Polo Club and in the heart of an historic neighborhood, the three-acre property was originally developed in the mid-2000s. In 2019, new owners purchased the property and invited the Landscape Architect to reimagine the garden to encompass a lively fusion of modern forms and naturalistic horticultural expressions, and to create more family gathering spaces. Catalyzed by a family’s appreciation of horticulture, and their desire to create a distinct landscape that celebrates a mile-high location, the landscape architect forged a plan that merges nature and nurture, creating a cultivated oasis in the heart of an urban location. Horticulture and design converge in a three-acre residential garden, effectively transporting the owners and their guests through the myriad of diverse and extraordinary landscapes of Colorado. The result is a modern home, set in the heart of urban Denver, surrounded by sweeping meadows, perennial wildflowers, rocky outcroppings, aspen woodlands, coniferous forests, open water, and dry stream courses.
