During this past year, we’ve expanded our homes by opening them to the great outdoors, and the seamless transition between inside and outside has become even more important.

Although sometimes the results appear to be the work of Mother Nature, the truth is that it takes skilled specialists to design patios, pools, walkways, bridges, ponds and gardens that blend with the natural landscape.

Here you’ll find our Top Mountain Landscape Designers list, created from recommendations from architects, designers and readers. The directory of firms working in the Rocky Mountain West is listed by state and town; for firms with multiple locations, we’ve included the specific locale submitted with the nomination. Firms that have been in the pages of Mountain Living receive a special designation, listing their most recent project as of July 2021.
