Colorado stoneworks is a proud members of the Association of Landscape Contractors of Colorado. Each year the southern chapter chooses a local non-profit that is in need of a landscape renovation. This year we chose to support the Alpine Autism Center in the Mountain Shadows neighborhood. This facility uses highly interactive and individualized treatment for children and families affected by autism. They just recently secured funding and have purchased the building in full.
We decided to help them increase the curb appeal of the facility and to create an area where donors can be recognized with engraved cut flagstone along the entry way. Due to the water restrictions, we also wanted to provide an example of a xeriscape that uses less water and local drought tolerant plants. The turf area was reduced in the area in front of the building while still leaving a usable area of turf for the kids on the side of the building. We also just did some basic clean up, weeding, refreshing rock beds, and new plants to tweek the appearance of the main sign area. Hopefully this project will benefit the Alpine Autism Center for years to come. We’re happy to be a part of this project each year.
Here are some photos taken throughout the process. Thank you to the other companies, vendors, and our employees for making this project a complete success!
