Does your front yard suck? Water, that is. Then, it’s time to transform to a water-wise ColoradoScape!
Each year, Castle Rock Water gives away an $8,000 front yard landscape. Residents who want to include less turf and more water-wise plants into their landscape should enter to win.
A team of experts will transform your water-thirsty yard into a vibrant, colorful and seasonal landscape that is more conducive to our Castle Rock environment. With more than 1.5 billion gallons of water being poured onto our yards each summer, reducing turf and introducing more water-wise plants, is the recommended conservation measure to help add to long-term sustainability. Removing just 100 square-feet of turf and replacing it with ColoradoScape can save 1,000 gallons of water per season!
