Welcome to Urban Gardens!

“As a Stapleton and former Park Hill resident in Denver, Colorado, I know firsthand the challenge of making the most efficient use of urban spaces, from the small yards characteristic of ‘new urbanism’ to the relatively spacious outdoor areas found in some of Denver’s older neighborhoods.

I would love to show you how to turn your outdoor space into a beautiful, unique extension of your home that reflects your personality and style, offers privacy, and functions to its maximum potential.

I provide landscape design and consulting services to residential clients whose projects range from historic renovations to new subdivisions with a blank slate. I lead clients through a master planning process that begins with an analysis of your site’s function, scale, elevation and drainage. I then take your needs and desires, refine them, and develop a thoughtful, cohesive plan that can be implemented in phases, if desired.” Sarah Christian
