The History Behind American Design & Landscape
It all began in 1967 with our founders, the husband and wife team of Gary and Linda Smith. Their 3rd generation ranching and farming roots in rural Nebraska prepared Gary and Linda for the hard work, dedication, and attention to detail that is necessary to build a quality client focused business. Linda utilized her business administration knowledge, and Gary drew upon his farming experience coupled with his degrees in Art/Design and Biology, all of which proved to be a winning combination for starting their small landscape company in Denver, Colorado.
Today, over 50 years later and now located in Parker Colorado, American Design & Landscape has become an award - winning residential landscape design and build firm, also offering commercial landscape maintenance services. The company continues to grow and includes the 2nd generation of Gary and Linda’s family and a number of other 2nd generation family members from the American Design & Landscape team.

Joanna and I thank you for a wonderful job. From start to finish the experience has again been wonderful. From the planning and communication to the effort of your employees including daily and final cleanup was excellent.
- Brett A.
Not only did they complete the job in a timely manner but also ended up going above and beyond with leaving my back yard looking better than when they arrived on the first day.
- Emily E.
ADL has been our landscape maintenance contractor for more than 7years now and they do a fantastic job. I work with Michael and he is great. He is responsive to our needs, returns phone calls quickly and shows a genuine concern for our property and the importance of keeping it looking beautiful. He keeps us informed of the progress of all on going projects and sees them thru to fruition. ADL uses quality plantings and products and is very reasonable in keeping our costs within reason. They also do our snow removal during the winter and keep our streets and sidewalks clear and safe all winter long. In short they are the best. I would highly recommend ADL to any community and or individual any time. In short they are the best landscape and design and landscape maintenance company out there.
- Steve C.
We had quite a bit of landscaping done in our backyard and we were extremely impressed with American Design and Landscape. Mike did a great job putting together a plan as well as making great suggestions to us to help our maintenance be less. The project started right on time and the crew worked hard every day providing us with a beautiful new landscape. They also finished right on time and left our yard very clean. I'd recommend this company to anyone. We definitely will be using them for any future projects we have. Thanks American Design and Landscape!
