Your Tailored Outdoor Sanctuary

Beautifully-custom & water-efficient - we like the sound of that!

Artificial lawns aren’t what they used to be. 

Contractor Michael Stampfler sees them firsthand as he and his team are able to produce a low-maintenance, tranquil and eco-friendly lawn — made of synthetic grass. 

“It’s changed a lot in the last 10 to 15 years,” says Stampfler. 

Artificial lawns are among several trends Stampfler has noticed in the area since he launched his general contracting company Transblue Boulder in March 2022. He also has had many requests for pergolas, decks, and electric vehicle charging stations. 

“One of our favorite requests is a full landscape design,” he says. “We’ll go to the nurseries with you to help you pick out your ideal plants and flowers based on what's best for your design and location.”

After a successful first year with more than 40 clients and around 100 projects, Stampfler is eager for another year of transforming homes and businesses. 

“My background is in the Navy,” he says. 

Stampfler, who is still a reservist, spent eight of his 15 Naval years in active duty in San Diego, Guatemala, Columbia, and Trinidad and Tobago — mainly as a Naval diplomat. 

Stampfler then spent some time in the corporate world before he decided to start his own company. He researched over 100 different business ideas and landed on contract work. He and his wife chose Colorado as a starting point, and moved to Frederick. He chose Broomfield for his business’ headquarters. 

“Colorado was a no-brainer,” he says. “There’s a lot of growth opportunities.” 

Stampfler hired Erick Kennedy, who was born and raised in Broomfield and had an extensive construction background, as his director of operations.

“Our value proposition is to bring tailored solutions to our customers,” says Stampfler. “Anything a customer asks about, Erick’s got those answers.” 

Transblue is best for people who have a list of projects they’d like done for their home or business, Stampfler says. 

“If someone only wants a new driveway, there’s plenty of companies to call for that,” he says. “But if someone wants multiple projects, we can make it all come together in a package deal. We’re going to be talking to our customer every day.” 

Many of Stampfler’s customers often come to Transblue seeking help for projects that are halfway completed and need a fix. 

“People have heard all these horror stories of bad contractors,” he says. “We are trying to fight against that trend and do really well for our customers.” 

Last summer, Jill Ring of Westminster had Transblue manage the complete renovation of her outside property to help save money on her water bill. The teams xeriscaped her entire front yard after tearing out the existing lawn. In the backyard, Transblue helped facilitate the rebuilding of two decks, the removal of grass, the installation of artificial grass and the rebuilding and restabilizing of the property gates. 

The entire process was complete in three weeks, Ring says. 

“Every team member was so friendly and honestly went above and beyond for us,” she says. “Their staff has followed up via email, text messages, and phone calls even post-installation.”

Ring now saves the money she wanted on water, and enjoys her new yard. 

“The deck is beautiful and we love sitting outside to enjoy our beautiful low maintenance yard,” she says. 

Rikki Gilbert had her entire Boulder yard redone by Transblue in 2022. 

“I’ve been working with Transblue for about a month and they have done about seven years of work on my house,” she says in a video testimonial. 

Looking Ahead 

The unknown aspects of a project — from long permitting processes, engineering hurdles and supply issues — are what people need to be most aware of when planning outdoor construction, says Stampfler. And having expectations that things with your project will change. 

“It can be 50% longer and 50% more expensive than what you really think,” he says. “Getting the right information up front from someone you trust is very useful.” 

As spring picks up, Stampfler expects things to book quickly, especially in the Broomfield area. 

“Get your name on a list now.”
