Design Assistance Program

Get help creating an attractive, low-water using landscape plan for an area of your yard. The Xeriscape Design Assistance Program includes a private, 1½ hour consultation with a landscape design professional. At the end of the consultation, you will have a plan that is ready to be installed by you or a contracted landscaper.

To be eligible, you must be a Fort Collins Utilities water customer.

Fee: $50, paid directly to the landscape designer.

To get started:

  1. Register online to verify eligibility and to be added to the sign up list. Please allow up to three business days for your request to process.
  2. Receive a preparation packet, including Preparing for Your Design Consultation (PDF 2MB) and a list of participating landscape designers.
  3. Contact one or more of the designers on the list and choose one you'd like to work with.
  4. Schedule an appointment with a designer at your home or other agreed upon location.

After your design consultation, you are eligible for a Xeriscape Installation Rebate of $.50 per square foot (sf), up to $500.
