Native Edge Landscapes is a Boulder-based firm that’s passionate about designing, building, renovating and maintaining unique outdoor spaces that reflect our client’s values, are true to place and ensure some of life’s best moments happen outside.


It was gold that first lured thousands of fortune seekers westward to Colorado’s mountains in the 1860’s. But it was the majestic Rockies that lured Native Edge founder Tom Sunderland to settle in Boulder 130 years later. In 1995, he discovered his inner craftsman and his passion for working with natural materials in the outdoors. Six years later Native Edge Landscapes opened its doors in North Boulder, with just one employee. Tom. He later would become known as the infamous El Queso Grande.

Today, we continue to operate from that same location with a diverse team of over 60 passionate landscape industry professionals.
