Xeriscape Colorado Demonstration Gardens

Attributes of good xeriscape education gardens include plant labels, interpretive materials like brochures and plant lists, hydrozoning, ease of public access, and availability of knowledgeable staff to provide interpretation. Feedback from visitors to the garden owners/managers is encouraged.

In Colorado, we're fortunate to have a wealth of xeriscape garden examples. Listed here are gardens along the Front Range. If you know of a garden that is not represented here, please let us know.
