Award-Winning Night.

April 2017: What an honor it was to be presented with two ELITE (Elevating the landscape industry through excellence) Awards for top projects in the state, one for best Design/Build project and the other for the People’s Choice Award for Best Use of Color.

The Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado (ALCC) announced the winners at their third annual ELITE awards banquet held March 29th at the University of Colorado’s South Denver campus. These awards recognize the best landscape contractors in the state that focus on sustainability and environmental stewardship.

We were so excited to receive the People’s Choice award for Use of Color for Mansfield Manor as it was voted on by the public. The Use of Color award focuses on innovative use of color, plant selection, quality and placement of annuals and perennials.

Farmhouse Fresh in Cherry Hills Village was awarded the Best Design/Build project as selected by a panel of industry judges. This award recognizes a landscape design and installation that exemplifies quality workmanship consistent with industry best management practices, follows design and related specifications for the project and satisfies client expectations.

Looking back 32 years, the success of Designs By Sundown is a testament to how a small company that started in a garage with two men and a truck is now recognized as one of the best landscape contractors in the state.  It is a privilege to work with such amazing clients on their projects.
