At The Green Fuse, the services we provide enrich the value of one’s environment. In striving to achieve this for all of our clients, we use a highly personalized approach. No two designs are created alike, as no two landscapes are maintained the same. We always use the best industry methods and practices while providing unique touches for each client.

To tailor our landscape services to each individual, we pride ourselves on asking the right questions and being excellent listeners. We take the time to assess each landscape challenge, arrive at successful solutions, and reveal unique potential.

We believe integrity matters and we strive to uphold this principle in everything that we do.

Our Founder

jill livingston founder of the green fuse landscape design of denver

Jill Livingston grew up with a shovel in her hand. She was raised by garden enthusiasts, one of which, her father, had Masters degrees in entomology and botany. As a teenager, Jill volunteered at the Cooperative Extension and answered plant health questions after becoming one of the youngest master gardeners in Illinois. She went on to complete an undergraduate degree in Social Work counseling from the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana. 
After trying out different professions, including a position working for the Governor as a capital budget analyst, she decided to turn her life-long love of plants and gardening into a career. This desire brought her to Denver, Colorado in 1999 to earn a Master of Landscape Architecture degree. 
During the course of her graduate program, she studied in Paris France. While studying the historical and infamous gardens in beautiful Paris, Jill decided she would start her own company while still attending graduate school full-time. Immediately upon returning home to Denver, she transferred her inspiration and years of experience into The Green Fuse with a handful of business cards and word-of-mouth referrals.

"I look forward to hearing from you soon!"

I began working for The Green Fuse 15 years ago as part of the field crew. Jill held the same values then as she does now. The Green Fuse is a company that allows individuals to grow, just as each project grows into a unique landscape. I now assist in client contact and keeping the office in working order when Jill is out in the field practicing her creative genius.

"We are a small company doing big things."

The Green Fuse is a company that can imagine anything. There are so many directions you can grow in—personally and professionally. The Green Fuse shows you that the sky's the limit when you cultivate people along with the landscapes. My favorite thing about landscape work is seeing the daily transformations and the satisfaction that a finished product brings.

"A great working environment."

Working outdoors makes for a healthy body, and a healthy mind. The Green Fuse provides ongoing educational opportunities and the small crew size allows us to learn about every aspect of the project. I enjoy learning about the plants we use, native soils, and landscape maintenance, as well as the tools and methods that best suit the job.

Our Space

The Green Fuse office space reflects our belief in enriching the value of every person’s environment while nurturing inspiration. We are in the business of making our client’s properties more beautiful and what better way to start the morning surrounded by sunshine and vibrant color!

Our employees begin each work day by entering a light-filled room occupied with upbeat furnishings and accents. We express our passion for education and creativity by filling the shelves with books and the walls with artwork. Staff is encouraged to check out books from our diverse landscape library.

Clients appreciate our attention to detail and efficiency in the field.  We believe this practice starts and ends every day with a welcoming shop and clean, organized equipment.
