We decided to upgrade our backyard during the pandemic. Our yard was was mostly weeds, broken concrete, and overgrown garden beds. After looking into several landscaping companies, we asked Thunderbird Design to give us a quote. Dustin came over and looked at the project. We wore masks outside while we were discussing the options. I felt safe and respected regarding my virus concerns. Within a few hours, Dustin had provided me with a first design draft. Over the next few days, I suggested revisions, and each time, Dustin quickly updated the design and the estimate. Originally, I was going to hire a second company to install a new concrete driveway, but ultimately, I decided that a gravel drive would be more attractive, and Dustin said that although Thunderbird doesn't pour concrete, they could do the gravel drive. After some discussion and a few tweaks, we agreed on a design. They installed a paver patio and a nice paver landing with steps to the back door. We removed the garden beds and replaced that part of the yard with a small grassy area for the dog and extended entertaining space.

Everyone at Thunderbird was exceptional. The demo and installation went smoothly. Workers came and went on schedule, and cleaned up after themselves each evening before they left. They were never any communications issues or problems that were not resolved easily. I would highly recommend Thunderbird. This was not an inexpensive project, but I alsolutely have no regrets or complaints about our experience or the finished product. I feel confident that the landscaping improvements has added great value to our property.

  • I put our landscaping project out to bid and although they were not the cheapest, they had the most professional bid. This was a big project and the crew showed up every day on time and saw it through to completion and I just stayed out of the way, no micromanaging. In the end, they delivered what they promised at the agreed upon price in a reasonable time period.

  • I LOVE Thunderbird Design!!! They wrote the book on quality care and customer service. My new house had no landscaping. I contacted several design companies and chose Thunderbird. Every aspect of the project was well-designed and properly managed. I will employ their landscape maintenance services as well. I am thrilled with their work and recommend them to anyone!

  • They were, as always, wonderful to work with. We have learned so much from their staff, and have even worked side by side with them in our gardens. I highly recommend working with them. They are definitely professional, courteous and responsible.

  • The initial meeting was very professional. The company was given a budget to work within. They came out and took measurements and photographs and designed a yard we were very happy with. The actual construction from start to finish was exactly on schedule with the exception of some bad weather days. The company never asked for a change to the estimate or final payment until we were satisfied. Since then, we have had them maintain our yard for the summer and have been very satisfied with the work. This includes weeding the gardens, cutting the lawn, and fertilization.

  • From start to finished they stood behind the quality of their workmanship and customer satisfaction. From a broken sprinkler line a month later, to plant replacements for those that didn't survive, they remedied the issues without question and in an extremely timely manner. They were professional, efficient and provided top quality work.

  • All workers with Thunderbird were on time and professional. While scheduled date was moved a few days, due to weather, they were so responsive and kept me in the loop at all times. The backyard is amazing and perfect because of their work.

  • We love our yard. They were fantastic from the start to finish and very clean with everything. They left no garbage while doing the job and cleaned up everyday. They were absolutely fantastic!

  • Excellent!! Dustin did a great job in designing the project. Was available for any questions or problem. This company did an excellent job. Took care of any problems right away. Very pleased with results. Thank you!!

  • Thunderbird responded to my online request within 2 days. A landscape designer came out, measured our area and we discussed what we wanted. Within another couple of days he had a schematic drawn up and came over with pictures of materials, and offered ideas that were perfect for our space. The workers were proficient and they worked hard until they got it done. We will now enjoy our new back patio space just in time for spring and summer. The project went very well from start to finish. Would recommend them to anyone looking for landscaping and hardscaping.

  • We now have one of the best front yards in the neighborhood and have received so many compliments! We heartily recommend Thunderbird Design to anyone that needs landscaping design and installation work.

  • I was very pleased with Thunderbird. They were very, very good, and their warranty was great. I chose them because the pricing was very good. I would absolutely use them again.

  • They created a beautiful flagstone patio with walking paths and raised planting beds. My yard is now a source of pride to me and I am very happy with the work that was done. I would use them again and will recommend them to all my friends.

  • Thunderbird was prompt, professional, friendly and exceeded our exacting expectations. We will be contracting with them in the spring to landscape the front yard. Neighbors who watched the activity were impressed with the work and plan to contact Thunderbird for their own projects.

  • They were courteous and professional. They called me the day I asked for an estimate. They called the day before the planned service date to request rescheduling due to snow. I was very pleased they called about this in advance. The arrived promptly as scheduled and cleaned up the yard very well.

  • Overall experience was excellent. Dustin and his team did an outstanding job. They got a delayed start due to weather but they kept us informed, came when expected, and kept the job site clean and orderly. The end product was just what we wanted, which they had helped us conceive when they first came out.

  • I worked with Dustin from Thunderbird. He responded quickly to my emails and phone calls, accommodated my schedule, was prompt, professional, and listened to what I was looking for. He provided me with exactly what I was hoping for and I am extremely pleased.

  • Our designer emailed us a proposal in a timely manner. The proposal is very detailed and takes into account our specific wishes. He clearly listened to what we are looking for.

  • The estimator was prompt and addressed all my questions. Everything was completed better than expected. I received a follow up email to ensure my satisfaction. Great job!

  • Dustin at Thunderbird Design gave the initial bid and provided the ideas and plans for our fire pit. He was very patient, and always upbeat no matter how many questions or changes we had. I liked how Dustin continued to be part of the project-he didn't just turn it over to someone else. He made changes in his schedule so he could meet with us when we had concerns. His crew was very professional as well, and I have never seen harder workers who took such pride in their work. They were always punctual, neat, and took care to make as little mess as possible. They were a pleasure to work with and finished the work promptly even though we kept making changes. I would highly recommend them for any landscaping needs.

  • Adam created a wonderful landscape design. My yard definitely has curb appeal with lots of plants of various colors. He listened to my ideas and needs and gave me a beautiful yard. The workers were all courteous and answered all my questions. They were promote and cleaned up any mess that they made. The plants all came in good shape as did the sod. I would definitely recommend Thunderbird Design to anyone who wants a beautiful landscape.

  • Service was excellent, from a detailed bid with drawing to the commitment to getting the project done on time. I was so impressed by the energy of the crew, and how lovely our yard became through their work. I was especially impressed that they kept the debris to a minimum so as to not disturb us, or our neighbors, and every day they cleaned up before they left. We intend to use Thunderbird to maintain the lawn and irrigation, and we are going to have them do more landscaping in our back yard.

  • I worked with Eric. He was very professional, worked with me to make sure he understood what I wanted the area to look like and came up with a really interesting and creative design. The crew was right on time, worked hard, very professional and did an amazing job removing all the trees and brush. They did a wonderful job cleaning up. They were very careful not to drop any heavy materials on the driveway and when they were done, all that was left was a pristine garden area. Very nice job.

  • From the beginning, Thunderbird provided a detailed design and estimate, which was very helpful, in that we didn't have an unlimited amount of money to spend on this project. We were able to work with the designer and make several tweaks until we arrived at a final plan. Working with this company has truly been a pleasure, which is such a great comfort when spending such a large amount. I'm very glad I chose to work
    with Thunderbird Design.

  • We hired Thunderbird Design to do general landscaping in our front yard. They laid mulch in preparation for bedding plants in Spring, moved sprinkler heads around, removed rock & sod. We were very happy with the job they did. Dustin Bailey was prompt in returning our calls and gave us some good feedback as to the lay-out of the landscaping. He was very professional and was good about communicating with us. The crew did the job in one day. They were courteous & cleaned up when they were done. They could only do half the project because it was so late in the year, they will come back in the Spring to do the planting. We were so impressed with how well the project looks even though it is not fully finished. We look forward to having them back in the spring to finish up. We were impressed with Dustin and would definitely recommend this company.

  • Called Thunderbird Design off a recommendation from one of our friends. Adam was very friendly and helpful and listened to the work we wanted done and was able to complete the work as requested. They were very flexible in their scheduling and the work was handled promptly and they kept our yard in good shape and clean. I will call them for
    any future landscape work.

  • Completely renovated back yard, including new pavers, removal of existing concrete slab, removal of old concrete stairs, new retaining wall, new gas fireplace, new mulch and plantings. Also did new pavers and refreshed beds in front yard. And, of course, all the design work. These guys were awesome. Incredibly responsive. Decent pricing. And
    great work

  • Dustin who is the landscape designer was very kind and professional, we really only had a few ideas of what we wanted our backyard to look like. Dustin drew up a landscape plan just a few days after our initial visit. There was no consultation fee which we appreciated, Dustin's ideas and vision for our backyard began to take shape, he is truly talented and a delight to be around. Thunderbirds work crew were just as nice, very punctual and extremely polite. Everyone did an amazing job bringing it all together in the end. We would highly recommend Thunderbird, we will continue to use Thunderbird to
    restart the drip line this Spring and maintain plant maintenance. They are the only company I feel comfortable using to keep our backyard looking so nice.

  • Pretty big job, and they only asked for 10% up front to get started. So with plan in hand, they followed it to a tee. Even offered great suggestions to improve upon it. They were there every day, and if weather was bad on any weekday, they worked on Saturday and Sunday. If ever there was any issue, question, or concern, they were available to address it to everyone's satisfaction in reasonable time. Didn't even ask for final billing until we walked off entire job and they were certain we were happy.

  • Wonderful service and attention to detail. Worked efficiently, crew was pleasant, and they did an excellent clean up.

  • My landscape designer, Paul Eisen, was fantastic! Professional, creative and came up with a plan of exactly how I imagined plus with new ideas. The installation was smooth with very little problem and they were punctual, professional, flexible and efficient. I was very pleased!

  • From start to finish they stood behind the quality of their workmanship and customer satisfaction. From a broken sprinkler line a month later, to plant replacements for those that didn't survive; they remedied the issues without question and in an extremely timely manner. They were professional, efficient and provided top quality work.
    I met these guys at a Home Show I was working at and it was actually by accident that I called them. I meant to contact another company that I had met at the Home Show. But I think faith brought us together because Adam and Chason and the rest of Thunderbird Design have been fantastic. Our budget was small at $5k with big plans to completely overhaul our backyard. Several of the companies I had called never called back when they found out that we were working with a $5k budget. But Adam from Thunderbird Design called me back immediately and I was very impressed by their willingness to work with us on such a small budget. Adam scheduled an appointment and was on time and gave us a beautiful design which was delivered to us also on time. With a $5k budget, we were planning to do our backyard in stages but upon seeing the full backyard plan, we decided it would be worth it for us to take out a $5k loan and do the whole thing at $10k budget. Adam answered all our questions and met with us several times to go over the design and make any changes, additions, etc. Adam was very easy to get a hold of via phone or by email. The guys came out and executed the design and completed the project in 4 days! It was really amazing to see our backyard transform from dead grass and weeds as tall as my head to this beautiful design of circular paver stone patio, red Colorado flagstone walkways, and various plants in 8 different garden beds. These guys also warrantee the plants they put in for a full year. Now our backyard is the highlight of our home. We definitely plan to keep in touch with Thunderbird Design as they offer sprinkler maintenance service, bulb planting, etc. It was an easy, painless, awesome experience. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.

  • Adam, Jason & the entire team were excellent to work with - on time, professional & took pride in their work.

  • What a difference a day makes!! It looks absolutely beautiful. I am so pleased. Everything looks so green and healthy. I love the way the bushes filled in the rest of the back yard and the front looks sooooooo much better. Thanks to you, Dustin. Thanks again for coming out, listening to my concerns and then taking the time to make it look right. Thanks again!

  • Thank you, Dustin. Everything looks great and your crew was fast, efficient, clean and polite. I will recommend you and your company to my friends.

  • Thunderbird Design took my garden from 0 to 60 in just one year. They used beautiful and unique plants to create such variety that my garden continually surprises and delights the eye. They also made sure the yard would bloom from spring through fall with each season bringing a new round of color. In fact, I couldn't wait to see what would happen next.
    Most importantly, they listened carefully so they could create the garden that would please me. And they did, creating a space that I love and that my friends love to visit. I’d never spent much time in my yard before. Now, thanks to Thunderbird, I really live outside.

  • The folks at Thunderbird Design are knowledgeable, skilled, friendly, reliable, affordable and easy to have around. They helped to design, plan and maintain a beautiful landscape for our home. I definitely recommend them for all of your seasonal landscaping needs!

  • Hi Adam! I just wanted to thank you and Chason and his team. My yard is wonderful and I can’t believe they could do all that they did in two days (13 hour days, but 2 days!). Chason and his team are great and the work is wonderful. Please send me some of your business cards when you have a minute. I work for a great company and I’m happy to refer you and your company to my team. Thanks again.

  • The pergola and patio looks great! Can't wait for the weekend so my friend, Jim, can come and see it! Everyone I've worked with at Thunderbird has been just super. Kudos to the entire team! Thanks again!

  • I cannot believe how great the back yard already looks. It is unbelievable! These guys are working so hard and are so meticulous. Jason is terrific! He showed me the fire pit and showed me how to work it. Thanks for our dream backyard.

  • We just wanted to thank both Dustin and Jason for transforming our yard into what it is today. Dustin was very accommodating and patient from the start of the design process. We must have changed our minds a thousand times, but Dustin was able to roll with it and produce great designs that meshed with our taste and budget. After receiving a surprise visit from the city inspector, we found out that we had to abandon our current design in a section of the front yard. But without missing a step, both Dustin and Jason were at our house early the next morning with a solution, which turned out to be even better than the previous plans. We can't say enough about Jason and his crew. They were bright and early every morning. Jason was there to answer every question we could throw at him. We gained a great amount of trust in Jason just after a few minutes of meeting him. He was able to lay out the entire schedule from start to end. We really appreciated his honest opinions on a couple of matters. It was extremely comforting knowing that we could leave our house and trust that everything would be done right. Even with all the changes we had to incorporate on the last day, Jason and his crew were able to bang out what seemed like a couple days worth of work, in just a single day. The landscaping turned out to be better than we imagined. We've already received a ton of compliments on the design. Thank you again for all your hard work, we'll definitely refer all of our friends to you guys!

  • This is a short note to let you know how pleased and satisfied we are with the new arbors recently completed in our back yard. The project is stunning - as you can see by the photo.

    Since we had worked with Dustin several years ago on a similar project (before he joined Thunderbird Design) we trusted his design skills to expand on the original arbor. His sense of proportion and attention to detail were evident in the plan he drew up. It's a real pleasure working with Dustin and we always feel confident when we begin a project with him.

    Jason and his crew, Richard, Rene and Juan, did a super job on the construction. It was clear from the first day that they work well together - a great team. It was reassuring to watch them work - efficiently and carefully so that no errors would be made. Jason was great in keeping me informed as the project progressed.

    And Kevan made several site visits to follow the work and to answer any of my questions.

    A beautiful design, perfectly executed. Looks great from any angle. It definitely exceeded our expectations.

    The arbors are already getting compliments from neighbors - of course we give them your company name.

    We will look forward to working with Thunderbird Design again in the future.

  • Great design stems from knowing your plants and conditions intimately. Apply that knowledge with a superb level of garden artistry and you have Thunderbird Design. Let them create the garden of your dreams.

  • I had a great experience working with Thunderbird. I would characterize them as knowledgable, hardworking, and respectful.

  • I would like to thank thunderbird for my new back yard. My experience with them was wonderful. I would recommend them to all my friends and family.

  • Chad Brunette and the staff of Thunderbird Design completed a major landscaping project for our home last summer. We wanted to replace the out-dated and sterile rock-and-juniper landscaping with a new environment to attract birds and provide a Colorado-appropriate garden of perennials and shrubs. By the end of its first season, the landscape was totally transformed. Hummingbirds, warblers, waxwings, and many other songbirds found their way to the garden during the fall migration—more than 60 species in all! We enjoyed the partnership with Chad and noted the special pride that the staff took in the patio and walkway that they rebuilt for us. These people are enthusiastic experts who know and love the unique plants and, as artists, enjoy creating a natural garden.

  • I chose Thunderbird Design because of their excellent service, quality and unique style. It all started with a custom design provided by their designer. She had a vision to turn an unusable area filled with pea gravel and not much else, into a beautiful ‘outdoor living room’ to entertain, relax and enjoy. The installation process was done professionally by a skilled crew in a timely manner. The designer and foreman kept in close contact with me to ensure that everything was implemented as discussed in the design process, and that I was happy with the outcome. I have received non-stop compliments on the transformation of my backyard. I am so excited to have an outdoor living space surrounded by a luscious garden! I am more than happy to recommend Thunderbird Design to anyone, and I am looking forward to a lasting relationship with them.

  • We are delighted to provide a testimonial for Thunderbird Design. Our experience with Meghan Himschoot and the crew with whom she worked on the transformation of our front garden was exemplary. She was professional, thoughtful and personable. Meghan listened to our vision and helped us achieve a wonderful result. Her crew was efficient, pleasant, and made certain that everything was cleaned up after their work was completed. Her follow-up has been timely and most welcome. We are now recommending Thunderbird Design whenever friends and neighbors comment on the wonderful evolution of our front garden or ask for thoughts on who they might use for a similar project. We look forward to working with Meghan Himschoot and Thunderbird Design on future projects for years to come.
