Lorin Bridger, Owner

Lorin grew up in Chicago. At the first opportunity, he fled the Midwest for the mountains of Colorado, where he studied environmental geology at Colorado College. Following a short hiatus living and working in Costa Rica, Lorin graduated, spent a couple of years working at a sustainable farming operation, and ultimately relocated to Fort Collins in 1999. He entered the industry as a local nursery employee, and soon founded Waterwise Land and Waterscapes to create well thought-out landscapes and install them utilizing the best possible means. Since its inception in 2001, a history of meaningful relationships, original designs, and quality projects has led to consistent growth and new opportunities.


Kristin Crawford, Office Amazing

If Kristin doesn't come in to work, we might as well turn out the lights and call it a day. That is, if we ever figured out how to turn them on to begin with. She is the Jerry to our Tom, the Gallaraga to our Walker, the Ben to our Luke.

Niki Cabela, Landscape Designer

Niki is a Michigan native who transplanted to Colorado in 2008 to attend Colorado State University. She originally recieved her Bachelor's of Arts in Anthropology, with a concentration in Archaeology but after a summer digging in Israel, her love for art and design led her to change fields. She went back to school at CSU and obtained her Bachelor's of Science in Landscape Architecture. Her love for the city of Fort Collins and the people that live there has led her to be truly inspired by the process of landscape design; from the beginning of the process to the end, experiencing the journey alongside the client.
