Landscaping Changes Are Coming. Are You Ready?
April 30, 2023

As water shortages spread across the West, communities are imposing restrictions on residential and commercial landscape designs.

Aurora, Colorado’s third-largest city, recently banned certain uses of grass and turf in new developments and offers rebates for replacing turf with water-saving landscaping. Denver and other cities are looking at turf grass regulation as well—both voluntary and mandatory.

That means tons of low-water landscaping materials like boulders, river rock, and gravel will be needed. And that will take plenty of trucks to move it around.

The Future Looks Rocky

Many years ago, the Denver Water Department invented the term “xeriscaping” to describe landscaping designs that reduce or eliminate the need for watering. Those designs, which involve the use of rocks, gravel, sand, and native plantings, have crept into commercial landscape designs but have proved less popular with residential owners. As both state and local governments move to tighter restrictions on landscaping, though, xeriscaping or similar schemes are bound to grow, pun intended.
