The Town of Frederick partners with local nonprofit Resource Central to offer innovative programs to help people save water, conserve energy, and reduce waste.
The Lawn Replacement Program offers a mix-and-match solution for upgrading to a water-wise yard. Save water and money, reduce lawn maintenance, and create a colorful habitat. It’s easy! Just agree to remove at least 200 square feet of your lawn through the program and replace it with water-wise gardens, permeable green landscaping, or other water-efficient plant material.
The Lawn Replacement Program is currently in its off-season. You can visit Resource Central’s website to get on the interest list for 2024!
Note: Town of Frederick Land Use Code (Section 2.14) limits the amount of decorative rock or gravel mulch allowed in landscaped areas. If you are planning on including significant amounts of decorative rock or gravel mulch in your landscaping project, please contact Kylie Couch at 720.382.5612 or KCouch@FrederickCO.gov to ensure that you do not exceed the allowed amount in your yard.
