Botanically Improving the Character of Your Home or Business

Creating a beautiful garden in the Colorado Rockies is challenging due to a very dry, short, growing season, and low temperatures. At Mountain Roots, we strive to create and care for unique, natural, and sustainable high- altitude perennial and annual gardens in Eagle County. We have a passion to ensure that the plants, products, and practices we use have minimal effects on the environment. We want a greener and safer future for generations to come.

From My Clients


Until we started using Mountain Roots to help plan and maintain our large garden we were so overwhelmed that we were ready to give it up. Alyse and her staff have served us well…knowledgeable, reliable, responsive, and creative. We look forward to a long relationship with this outstanding landscaping company.

I was one of Mountain Roots initial clients when Alyse Piburn started her company in 2011.  Gardening is difficult in Summit County and my large garden has improved tremendously with Alyse’s advise, plant selection, and hard work, whether I am in town or away.  She weeds, plants, fertilizes, prunes; whatever I need.  People to whom I’ve referred her thank me and say how pleased they are with her knowledge and skills.  I appreciate Alyse’s loyalty as she goes out of her way to be available when I need her and her fees are reasonable.

Alyse has worked our property for the past three years.  We had one particular challenge to soften the hard scape and she implemented a very creative solution.  Over the years she expanded and nurtured our gardens and every year gets better as the plants mature and she adds to plantings.   The key is to trust her and let her work her magic.
