How we make your dream yard
Our professional crews respect your time, your property, and your neighbors. Along with delivering beautiful surroundings, we believe in providing the best possible experience. We arrive on time and ready to work. You’ll always know exactly what’s going on with your project, the progress we’ve made, next steps, and have an up-to-date schedule. If a problem arises, we promise to take care of it immediately. And when we leave your yard, you can count on it being clean.
Your property is always treated as if it were our own. This sense of ownership enables us to not only meet, but exceed your every expectation for high-quality, creative outdoor living for your Fort Collins space.
Step One: Consultation
Our local Fort Collins landscape designers want to get to know you – to learn about your dream project and site access, goals, and timeframe while demonstrating why Mill Brothers can be a solution for you.
Step Two: Site Visit
After the initial consultation, and assuming we have earned your trust to move forward, time will be scheduled for a designer to meet you at your home to dive deep into the unique features of your project. With this on-site collaboration, your designer will be able to present a design time frame, as well as conceptual plans.
All of our landscape and architectural designers are local to Fort Collins and are Mill Brothers employees. As a result, there are no commissions or kickbacks and no high-pressure sales tactics. They are here to be a resource to you.
Step Three: Budgeting
It’s normal for people to avoid talking about the budget. Every one of us is a consumer, and the worst feeling to have is that you’re being taken advantage of. We completely understand this. If there are budgetary concerns, we highly recommend developing a master plan and then installing the landscape in phases over time as budget allows. This will allow us to make provisions in the first phase, so future work can be done as cost-effectively as possible and without damaging previously installed work.
Step Four: Conceptual plan review
Once the design agreement has been executed, your designer will create a master plan and will make an appointment to review those plans and materials with you. Your designer will have created a preliminary estimate to ensure it is in line with the previously discussed budget.
Step Five: Final plan review
Any revisions from the conceptual plan will be incorporated into the final project and all materials, finishes, appliances, landscape plantings, enhancements, irrigation, and lighting, along with all other details, will be noted on the plan or as a supplemental attachment. Final pricing will be provided, and any further questions will be addressed.
Step Six: Contract Signing
As part of the final plan review meeting, your designer will have a contract prepared and a tentative start date for your outdoor living project in Fort Collins. Your landscape designer will then prepare construction documents for permitting, engineering, and HOA approval, if required. But don’t worry – we handle all the permitting and submittals as part of our service.

Jess H. - Pleased Client
"I can't say enough nice things about this company. Jeremy and his staff really went above and beyond to keep us informed, change things if we needed to fit in our financial budget, completed our yard in record time. We didn't chose an over the top landscape, or water feature, just your basic irrigation, sod, rocks, trees and bushes.We tried to get several bids prior to signing with them, but no one would come out, or they were too outrageous on their bids. Highly recommend, A+++"
Baessler Homes - Commercial Client
"Mill Brothers Outdoor Living designed and installed the landscaping and outdoor living spaces for our home including the general landscaping/plantings, patio spaces, fireplace, water feature and landscape lighting. Additionally, they helped us select and supplied all of our outdoor furniture and outdoor kitchen center including a bbq/smoker and other appliances. Andy Mill and his team have been great to work with. Alissa Strickland was the designer we worked with and we were very impressed with her ideas. We highly recommend them to anyone that is considering an outdoor living project at their home!"
G. Porter - Outdoor Living Client
"Amazing job done by Mill Brothers and specifically Alissa on the design and Todd on the installation. Worked with us closely to get a design that flows with our lot and is low maintenance. Have recommended them to any one who asks...and people do ask who did our landscaping because it is gorgeous."
Christy W. - Outdoor Living Customer
"We enlisted Mill Brothers to design a new patio for us to replace an area where we'd had a hot tub deck. They came up with a wonderful plan that included a lovely fireplace! In addition we had them replace our adjoining patio concrete with tumbled brick to match the new patio. We love the outcome including the choice of trees, bushes and flowers! They were very nice to work with."
