Colorado Hardscapes’ 2021 Year Review

USAFA Air Gardens overhead shot of memorial, pools, and flatwork done by Colorado Hardscapes 2021.

As we look back on 2021, we see many opportunities to be thankful.

This year, we celebrated 75 years in our industry and made significant milestones in our pool division. We were named contractor of the year by ASLA, were granted a bronze AGC ACE award, and got to be a part of many, one-of-a-kind projects.

Although we do take pride in a job well done, at the root of it all, we have YOU to thank. Without the support of you, our employees, clients, partners, and suppliers, Colorado Hardscapes would not be where we are today. So, thank you, to those most important to us, for your continuous support.

And as part of our yearly review, we put together this list highlighting five of our favorite projects completed in 2021! Thank you to everyone who contributed
