Xeriscape 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 demonstration gardens. Listed below are gardens along the Front Range.
