Xeriscape Colorado

Xeriscape Colorado is a program of Colorado WaterWise. We strive to promote xeriscape as a beautiful, water-saving approach to landscaping in our challenging climate and with our limited water resources.

Why xeriscape? In the western United States, over 50% of residential water is used on landscapes. A lot of that goes to turf grass. Switching to xeriscape reduces this water use by 60% or more.

You don't need to change your lifestyle to conserve water. You can reduce your water use by eliminating inefficiencies like broken sprinklers. You can also enhance your life by creating attractive, comfortable landscapes that also happen to use less water.

Your landscape is an investment in your comfort and in the value of your property. A good xeriscape will increase your property value by as much as 15%. Xeriscape can also reduce water and maintenance costs by up to 60%.

Xeriscape helps extend water supplies. When water use is restricted, inefficient, water-thirsty landscapes suffer first. Protect your landscape investment by drought-proofing it.
