Liz Loehmer is a landscape designer at Elevate by Design, envisioning and designing outdoor spaces specific to each client. She believes each and every design solution for an outdoor space is unique because of 3 things: context, character, and client. Each outdoor space has to fit within the confines of the site’s context, balance and compliment the architecture surrounding the space, and reflect the client’s style and how the space will be used.


Before her employment with Elevate by Design, she was part of the design team at a renowned residential landscape design/build firm north of Chicago. While there, she gained a deep appreciation for the details of small scale design and the lush landscapes of the Midwest.

Liz joined the EBD team in August 2015. She is on her way to becoming a licensed and registered landscape architect in the state of Colorado and holds a Bachelor of Science in Landscape Architecture from Purdue University.
