2017 Sustainability ELITE Award
Morrison School House (Morrison, CO)
This 1875 school house in Morrison was converted into a residential home with some modern interior and exterior additions. The rattlesnake-infested landscape was overgrown with weeds and unkempt trees. Bloom overhauled the backyard, keeping in mind the natural setting and the historic nature of the home while adding a modern twist. When construction began, resources of sandstone building materials and old school desks & chairs were discovered buried on the property. Bloom repurposed these materials in the new, child-and-pet-friendly landscape."

Excellence in Landscape Award 2012
Landscape Renovation - Woods Residence
The landscape on this Mediterranean styled home in Denver Country Club contained aging hardscapes, original with the house that had been neglected and deteriorating for years.
Local red flagstone now touches paths, patios and courtyards all around the property and enliven the home with warmer tones and functional outdoor rooms.
Well placed plants, walls, patios, pathways and lighting provide privacy, rich colors, and a functional space for year round entertaining.
Excellence in Landscape Award 2011
Landscape Renovation - Potager Garden
A transformation from a typical grassy front yard in the middle of the city to a functional oasis of winding paths through vegetables, herbs, and flowers makes this 'smart' garden desirable to all ages.
Well thought out placement of each plant and element creates a symbiotic enviroment for plants and keeps the integrity of the home's historical features.
This landscape has become the social garden of the neighborhood, inviting more to take part in the 'locavore' movement and see its practicality year round.
