Meet The Owner

Higher Ground Designs, Inc. is a well-established professional landscape architecture firm. We offer state-of-the-art comprehensive services from custom residential to commercial projects and more.

In 1985 my passion for landscape architecture began with my first design/build project. Over the years I developed unique design and installation skills which proved invaluable in generating construction documents and working as a team with contractors and other professionals.

Living in Colorado for over thirty years has provided me with an extensive knowledge of the Colorado native landscape and plant material. I take pride in this state and want our designs to reflect the natural beauty.

John MacKay, President
