San Juan Landscapes was created in 1999 by Erik Aura, Greg Deame, and Craig Prohaska. The three owners came to Colorado three years prior, drawn by their shared love of the mountains, blue skies, and powder skiing.
Realizing they shared a desire to carve a niche for themselves in the Telluride community, the three friends sought to build a company together. Armed with Greg’s Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from the University of Massachusetts and his extensive training in Aspen and San Francisco, Craig’s masonry and construction background, and Erik’s business expertise, San Juan Landscapes was born.

San Juan Landscapes has designed, installed, and maintained gardens in and around Telluride ever since, with a focus on beauty, quality, and durability. The team creates and maintains intimate outdoor spaces that are consistent with the architecture and design of the homes they surround, intended to draw you outside and invite you to participate fully in the stunning San Juan Mountains.
We are proud to employ a crew of local workers who are considered part of the “San Juan” family – many of whom have been with our company for many years.
