"Gorgeous family-friendly retreat"

We used RSL to landscape our backyard on our new house. They took it from dirt & weeds (literally!) to a gorgeous family-friendly retreat. John was amazing to work with in terms of design and vision, and the crew were great & delivered on exactly what they said they would do... when they said they would do it. Couldn't recommend them more.

"Exactly what we wanted"

John, Steve & Brian were excellent to work with. Their design for the project was exactly what we wanted. The project took less time to finish than originally predicted & is more than we ever imagined. They were accommodating to our changes. I would definitely recommend this company for any landscaping job.

"We are highly satisfied"

RSL did a fantastic job on our paver patio and walkway. We loved the design that they created, the lighting, the plantings and the fire pit. It was so nice to have one company manage the entire project without having to sub out any of the work. The workers were all very nice and worked hard to complete our project in a timely manner. We are highly satisfied and would definitely recommend RSL.

"We were so impressed"

We are extremely happy with the patio and landscaping completed by RSL. We were so impressed with the design John created. He was very professional and very responsive to all our questions. The crew did a wonderful job and made the whole thing come together. I have recommended RSL to coworkers and other families in our neighborhood.

We love our new patio and have tremendous respect for everyone at RSL.

"Perfectionists in

every way"

I had the pleasure of working with Steve and John from RSL over the last few weeks.... John came up with a fabulous plan to redesign the complete front of my residents.From start to finish they were on site every day… The two of them are perfectionists in every way. The project consisted of moss rock walls, walkways, large boulder placement ,plants trees and lighting.The final project exceeded expectations and has made me appreciate coming home every evening. Words cannot express how pleased we are.

"Reliable, professional

and skilled"

RSL provided landscaping for our backyard in our new home. They installed a patio extension to our previous patio and took the backyard from dirt to a beautifully landscaped space. Both John and Steve did an excellent job making sure we were happy with each step. They answered our many questions and were very responsive throughout the process. The entire crew was very professional, courteous and friendly. Mel, who was the onsite manager, was also available to answer questions and keep us up to date as the project progressed.


Even after the work was complete, RSL has stayed in contact to take care of the irrigation while the sod is getting established. Including sending someone to shut off the system when temperatures drop too low. We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a reliable, professional and skilled group of landscapers.

"First, it's stunning"

We had a new back yard area installed - fire pit and all. RSL was terrific! From the very beginning with the design all the way through to the finish and details. First, it's stunning.

But they made it very easy to understand the process and were very upfront about costs and ways we could save and yet still keep our vision. The crew was amazing, they took care of details always left the site as clean as possible at the end of each day. We couldn't be happier. Now just for spring to arrive so we can enjoy!

- Cindi Yaklich


"More than 5 stars!"

If I could I would give RSL more than 5 stars! They are both innovative and reasonable. They are excellent communicators and have BIG pride in their work. Our project manager had amazing attention to detail and was very responsive too all our needs. He was not satisfied until we were 100% satisfied. I recommend them 100% and I love love love our final product.

- Erica Kuhl


"They did an amazing job"

I was so pleased with the work done by RSL. They did an amazing job making our ideas into a reality, in a very reasonable price range. We wanted to expand our outdoor patio space with pavers that kept with the look of our home. They guided us toward a design and material that was the perfect fit for our home and lifestyle. They far exceeded our expectations in every way. They were neat at the end of each day, respectful and tidy during the entire project.

"Colorado style and top notch service"

After interviewing several outdoor living landscape companies, choosing RSL for our project was the right decision. As a professional in the real estate industry and residential construction, RSL exceeded our expectations as a contractor. John, Steve and Brian were the best in the business with customer service and communication.

We originally hired a company previously that failed to complete the work and left it unfinished. RSL stepped in and completed the project on time and delivered exactly what they had designed for us.

A point to be made in today's world is a company showing up when they say they will and completing the project when they say they will- RSL did exactly that!

We are continuing to use RSL for the rear landscaping of our project in the spring and look forward to the beautiful outdoor living space that they have planned for our home.

I would definitely recommend RSL to anyone looking for that Colorado style and top notch service!

"Professional and easy to work with"

RSL Outdoor Living did a fantastic job for us on all phases of our new front courtyard- from design through build to landscaping! We had a basic concept which then RSL enhanced to create the perfect Southwestern design to integrate with our existing home. They worked closely with us to get the project elements we wanted and stay within our budget. RSL maintained excellent communication during the project, stayed on schedule and consulted on decisions along the way. The management and project crews were very professional and easy to work with. We absolutely love our new outdoor space!

"The cleanest job site"

We had been working with another landscape design firm initially but decided on working with RSL after meeting with John and reviewing his plan for our space. The design incorporated a BBQ Island, Pergola dining area, water feature and fire pit as main elements which complemented both the house as well as the lot. They also created a raised garden and a retaining wall which tied in the entire space near the house. I should note that design incorporated flood mitigation throughout; our house is on a sloped lot that is backed by a creek. The results exceeded our already high expectations so much so that we added an additional parking area for a camper. The crew was extremely professional and were sensitive to the impact on our neighbors and neighborhood. In fact, other contractors working at the house commented that it was the cleanest job site that they had ever seen - every day the guys would tape off any dangerous areas so that our kids could still access and use the rest of the backyard - which we very much appreciated! They replaced over 1000 sq ft of deck with pavers by raising the grade. The seat walls around the fire pit and seating area create intimate spaces in the overall open design. We could not be happier with the results and have and will continue to recommend RSL to friends and coworkers. 




"They continue to

support us"

From the moment we contacted RSL they were professional yet friendly and personable. John listened to our ideas and with creativity and enthusiasm produced a fantastic design. The team worked fast and despite some weather challenges stuck to our time frame. Everyone treated our property with respect and all the workers were a pleasure to deal with. Whenever an obstacle arose it was immediately dealt with even at weekends and at odd hours. We cannot recommend Steve and his company enough. They continue to support us and our maturing garden. We have been very grateful that despite the project being completed, they are always ready with advice on planting and irrigating our new garden in Colorado's unfamiliar climate.

"Our yard is beautiful

and thriving"

We were very happy with the landscaping Project that was done by Rock Solid Landscapers.

They were so helpful in our design, and extremely nice to work with. The landscapers were efficient and courteous.
Our yard is beautiful and thriving!


- Jolene Ehrie


"Efficient, extremely hard working"

We had an old deck off our kitchen that was rotting and in a very windy area. We hired RSL to build a patio with a 6 foot privacy wall and wind barrier. We now have a wonderful courtyard to entertain and grill in. In addition we had RSL fix some grading issues. Their crew was efficient, extremely hard working, and respectful of neighbors, keeping the disturbance to a minimum.

"Well worth it"

We hired Rock Solid to redo our back pool area. Unfortunately the first person we hired cut corners and their work was failing after a year and a half. Rock Solid was more expensive but was well worth it to get the project done right. They were very professional and had great ideas to make the area work better than we could have imagined on our own. Would definitely recommend Rock Solid and would use them again.


- Chad Williamson


"End result is gorgeous"

We would absolutely hire RSL again. They completely redesigned most of our outdoor living space. We needed to replace a crumbling front patio, but the real challenge was the back yard. We have a small yard, and the space had been laid out poorly. We wanted to replace our old wood deck with a flagstone patio, and to optimize the remaining space for lawn and plantings. We needed to level a steeply sloped section of lawn, and add walkways on the north and south sides of our home to optimize access.


John and Steve listened carefully to our needs and executed our ideas in a way that exceeded our expectations while remaining within budget. John’s design incorporated curved retaining walls and flowing lines that made the final product exceptionally beautiful as well as functional. John and Steve remained flexible during the project, and gave us good advice when questions arose. The team who did the actual work at our home was excellent. The hardscapes were built to last. The foreman was a true artist with flagstone, paid attention to details, and clearly took great pride in his work. And despite the inevitable chaos of such a major re-do, they were very considerate and kept the project area as clean and usable as possible.


They stuck to their timeline. We were told 4-6 weeks, and the project finished in just under 6 weeks.


We did encounter a few challenges, as any project will. Getting just the right design (size/shape) on the flagstone steps off our back patio took a few tries, but they re-did them until they were perfect. We discovered our old front patio was set on concrete rather than dirt, so incurred a little extra cost over estimate in order to deal with that. Our freshly poured concrete walkways got rained on, and the color and finish were ruined. To his great credit, John insisted they be re-done, as they did not meet his quality standards.

We strongly recommend not choosing hardscape materials out of catalogues, because pictures in catalogues don’t accurately represent product colors. RSL created opportunities for us to see actual samples of materials, so there were no surprises.


The end result is gorgeous, and has dramatically improved the appearance, function and enjoyment of our outdoor space!

"Highly, highly recommend"

RSL installed a flagstone patio, irrigation, sod and plant material to transform the backyard of our new home from dirt to a beautiful space where we will love to spend our time! They were very responsive to our desires and budget. The process was seamless from design to the follow-up after completion. The communication and service from Steve and John has been impeccable throughout. Mel, along with the entire crew, worked tirelessly to complete our project during a patch of warm weather in February so that we were able to enjoy our space immediately. The follow up after completion is impressive -- managing the watering schedule and the running of the irrigation system based on weather conditions -- to ensure that everything thrives & is beautiful come Spring. Thanks so much to all! Highly, highly recommend -- and already have!

"A great company"

We hired RSL Outdoor Living after being connected with them through another favorite local business - Niwot Interiors. They came very highly recommended, and we can affirm that they are a great company based on the work done for us. They created a hardscape patio in a corner of our yard that had a small stone/pebble area for seating. More significantly, they extended the existing patio off the back of our home and built a small outdoor kitchen area with retaining wall, built-in grill and storage drawers on the end of that extension.

Additionally, they created a large stone walking path between the main patio and the "hot tub" patio in our backyard. They provide excellent design services; their communication is proactive and timely; their work crews are extremely professional and hard-working; and they worked very patiently and well with us when we had project and/or budget questions and concerns. They helped us to improve the use and value of our outdoor space - and everything they created looks like it's been a part of our house from the beginning. We would highly recommend RSL Outdoor Living.

"Incredibly pleased with our new patio"

We are incredibly pleased with our new patio from RSL Outdoor Living! John Herron's expertise in creating serene, dream patio with design features following the natural flow of our spacious yard. John was consistently responsive to our requests and readily available when the few challenges arose. The project was finished in a timely manner despite some weather complications and right on target with our budget. The entire crew was professional, knowledgeable, and followed the landscape plan developed by RSL. When there were ambiguities, they identified the options and presented them well. The customer service from everyone involved was exceptional from start to finish. We highly recommend John Herron and RSL Outdoor Living.



"Painstakingly committed"

John and Brian were excellent to work with. Their crew was 100% top notch and painstakingly committed to every minute detail of the stone work. John balances that by providing empathy, understanding and attention to the client.
