Dog Tuff Lawn and Pollinator Garden -Lakewood, CO Spring 2023

Our client wanted a lawn alternative that could handle foot traffic and her dog. We settled on ‘Dog Tuff’ grass, a hot season grass from Africa with significantly lower water requirements than Kentucky Bluegrass. After two growing seasons it can survive on rain water alone. Near the house we planted a pollinator garden featuring a wide variety of native plants, and we utilized the rain water from the roof to irrigate the new gardens.
