This landscape design in Aspen, Colorado requires simplicity in form and complexity in plant selection to complement the contemporary architecture. Unusual plant types and combinations create year-round interest and a landscape that has few maintenance needs. The design for the interior courtyard garden creates privacy and provides interesting views from the house, while the pool’s surface reflects an ever-shifting sky. The rough and natural design for the residence’s exterior landscape represents the wild beyond the courtyard’s refinement.
