The Front Range along the Colorado Rockies, as well as the Intermountain Western United States, is part of one of the major steppe regions of the world, and as such has challenging climactic conditions. Successful landscape design in the steppe region demands specific horticultural best practices that are unique to this geographic region. Sustainable landscape design provides a sense of place by using the design principle right plant, right place. Join us as we discuss the right practice – tips developed at Denver Botanic Gardens to ensure long-term, functioning landscapes in our unique steppe climate. We’ll discuss soil amendments, planting practices, watering recommendations, mulch, and of course – plants!
