Xeriscape Resources

Xeriscaped garden filled with native flowers With proper design and maintenance, beautifying your Colorado landscape with drought-tolerant plants, trees, flowers, and shrubs can significantly reduce your water use while also providing an aesthetic appeal.

Low-water landscapes are not only the right choice in our semi-arid climate, but they can also add value to your property investment and help you reduce the time and money spent on landscape maintenance. 

The Denver Audubon and Colorado Native Plant Society have landscaping guides available for reference. 

Tagawa Gardens, located just north of Parker, offers resources and free workshops to help you learn more.
