Drought

According to the US Drought Monitor report published on 2/13/2018, approximately 84% of the Colorado population, or 4.2 million people, are currently experiencing abnormal dryness or drought.  This includes the entire population of Arapahoe County.  We can’t predict what the future holds in terms of precipitation, or if outdoor water restrictions may be imposed for the summer season.  However, it’s a good idea to plan ahead.  Check out these links for tips and ideas on how to protect your investment in your home landscape during a dry season.
