"Creating unique, quality products from an investment of emotions..."

The passion of the outdoors and the drive to share that passion with others is why I-Design has been creating landscapes since 1992. We will create for you, a “Total Health” landscape that will help in the health of you as an individual, your family, the community and the environment. Let us, through your landscape, make this a never-ending outdoor experience.



Not only do I run I-Design year round but in the off season, November thru April, when there is to much snow on the ground to do anything landscape wise I am the Snowboard Supervisor at the Steamboat Ski and Resort Company. I help start the snowboard program in Steamboat in 1986 and have been involved in the industry ever since.

I also wrote a children's book. In 2010 I published a story I told to my daughter Thyme. Its called THE STAR FAIRY and is about a little girl that gets here wish for wings granted by the garden fairies and her adventure where she meets the Star Fairy.

I have a lovely wife Tracy who is an Ayurvedic Practitioner and operates her own business in Steamboat, a son named Calvin (after Calvin and Hobbes) and a daughter named Thyme. Not only is this my family but my employees and clients round out my extended family.


Adding visual interest, eliminating turf, and improving the outdated irrigation were the primary goals for this phase of the landscape. Zusch met with us several times to understand our requirements and designed a preliminary plan for a new patio, bench seat, fire pit, trees, grasses and lighting. Scheduling can be complicated especially with wet spring weather, so the start of our project was delayed. Zusch kept us informed and in fact proved to be a good and willing communicator throughout the entire project. The crew worked hard in the summer heat with little shade and were always pleasant – it was nice to hear their frequent laughter. They were meticulous in leveling and setting the steps and patio stone. They also relocated stone from the back of the house to create a new front walkway which turned out better than we expected because the crew took their time in selecting and setting the stone matching the pattern of the adjacent path. We appreciated their pleasant demeanor, their hard work and the clean work site they left each night. The crew and owner of I-Design are professionals and delivered a beautiful landscape that uses less water more efficiently. We highly recommend using I-Design for your landscape needs.Read More

Chris and his crew were great to work with. Chris took our ideas and designed a great landscape on paper. His crews then executed that plan to perfection. They were all very responsive to questions and comments and the final product turned out awesome. We would highly recommend Chris and his crew!Read More

I-design installed a new sprinkler system, regraded our yard and seeded our lawn. We had to wait a few months for them to get to our project but it was worth the wait. Hen starting up our system this year we had a slight leak and they came over right away and repaired it. Great customer service.Read More

We found Chris and his team to be very professional and a delight to work with. Chris reviewed our driveway improvement project with us, and was a great help in completing the design with an eye towards future improvements. Tyler, I-Design's project manager took great pride in completing the work in a very professional manner. His assistant, Kyle was great as well. The team arrived when promised and kept us informed of their progress on a daily basis. There were small cost overruns on the job which were communicated to us in a timely fashion. We are looking forward to working with Chris and I Design in the spring as we continue on with our landscape plans. We would highly recommend I Design to anyone looking to embark upon landscape projects.Read More

We are so happy with everything Chris and his staff have done for our home. He has an outstanding crew that we trust completely. Our landscape is truly a haven for our family. Chris and his team worked seamlessly with the contractor to coordinate all details needed. The end result is pure magic.Read More
