Creating a Colorado landscape that mirrors the beauty and diversity of our state and communities is a natural fit for our semi-arid climate.
And you don’t have to go at it alone. Expert information about water-wise plants and landscapes is available from Denver Water’s Remodel Your Yard, Colorado State University Extension, Resource Central, Plant Select and Denver Botanic Gardens.
