According to the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado ALCC, water shortages and drought are a certainty in Colorado, which is why sustainability begins with water conservation. Xeriscaping can be an excellent method of cutting back water usage. For homeowners in Boulder, xeriscape solutions are becoming vital strategies to keep their water bills low and their outdoor living spaces looking beautiful.

The Outdoor Craftsmen have been winning awards in Colorado every year since 2004 for their landscaping design and build expertise. In 2013 they are being awarded again for their designs in xeriscape and sustainable outdoor living spaces. This year Outdoor Craftsmen will be honored for creating some of Colorado’s best uniquely sustainable xeriscape gardens. At this year’s Excellence in Landscape Award banquet Colorado WaterWise presented Outdoor Craftsmen with a Grand Award for the best xeriscape garden in Colorado.

“These winning landscapes provide a snapshot of the most innovative landscape designs and cutting-edge trends seen in Colorado landscaping today,” said Kristen Fefes, (ALCC), executive director.

Outdoor Craftsmen has for many years stressed the importance of following sustainable landscape practices and always recommends to their clients ways in which their gardens can not only be beautiful but also sustainable. Recently, Chris Holthouser, lead designer for Outdoor Craftsmen served on a task force for the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado to create the state’s first Sustainable Landscape Partners Program. This program is intended to be an education source for contractors and homeowners alike. To become a member of the program, landscape professionals attend an intensive educational class on sustainable landscape principles offered by ALCC.
