Julia returned to the Roaring Fork valley in 1988 to start the landscape architectural firm of Mt. Daly Enterprises, LLC. The nature of the valley has allowed the practice to focus on all scales of development from residential projects to mixed use projects. As a subset of designing landscapes, Julia has developed extensive knowledge of plant material, particularly what performs well at higher altitudes. This knowledge extends into the arena of using plants in a water wise fashion suitable for our climate. Julia received her Masters of Landscape Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design. She chose the field of landscape architecture as a way of bringing her passion for painting and design together with her love of the natural environment. In addition to her work as a landscape architect, Julia has dedicated a part of her time to community improvements such as the Rio Grande Park and the Red Brick Art and Recreation Center in Aspen and as board member of the Carbondale Tree Board, The Art Base, Compass and The Art Campus at Willits.
Louis has been practicing landscape architecture in the Roaring Fork Valley since 2003. His project experience is diverse and includes small scale gardens, residential design, new communities, transit oriented development, streetscapes, school playgrounds, and recreation planning. He has worked on projects throughout the West, including Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, and Wyoming. Louis engages in all aspects of the profession, but particularly enjoys the technical challenges inherent in site design.
Louis is interested in how the built environment interacts with ecology, and strives to create places that are appealing, functional and appropriate for their environment. Louis holds a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Colorado, Denver and a BA in Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
