Grass to garden: helping waterwise yards become the new norm in Colorado

Two decades ago nonprofit Resource Central launched an effort to help Colorado families transition from thirsty turf grass yards to waterwise gardens.

We launched several water conservation programs focused on education, efficiency, waterwise plants, and turf replacement in collaboration with 40 water providers.

Together, we have since converted more than 3 million square feet of turf grass to beautiful waterwise gardens, helping local families save more than 250 million gallons of water. And we're just getting started.
