A Low-Maintenance Landscape for a Midcentury Denver Home


Working with a strict budget, a team from Three Sixty Design reimagines a Denver yard.

Inspired by Eichler homes in California, the midcentury neighborhood of Krisana Park in South Denver, Colorado, is host to a house that was in need of an updated landscape that would pay homage to the area’s roots. Enter Nic Leggett of Three Sixty Design, who worked with his team to create a lo-fi landscape defined by Cor-Ten steel, river rock, and neon-green sedum.

Neon-green sedum matches the front door.
Generous concrete pavers lead to the entrance.
Mature trees define the neighborhood, whose name, Krisana, is a mash-up of the names of the couple whose farm it was...
Crushed marble and river rock, which play off the hues of the home, mingle with easy-to-maintain blue fescue and sedum.
Permeable hardscaping retains moisture and helps reduce the need for watering.
High-gloss pots from Vondom contain drought-tolerant sedum.
