With the threat of global warming and the reality of water restrictions that happen frequently in Routt County, the Gecko approach to landscaping starts with being water-wise.
We select trees, bushes, shrubs and flowers that are perfect for our high altitude, dryer climate. This assures a beautiful landscaped yard with minimal maintenance in even the driest of conditions.
Gecko was the first full-service landscaper to take this into account. Our commitment to both beauty and the environment is well-recognized throughout Routt County by those in the know. Maybe that’s why we were voted “Best of the Boat” for five years running 2012-2016 by the Steamboat Today newspaper survey. And why many of top architects, builders and contractors insist on having Gecko as part of their team. They know that despite all the custom work they do on your home, it won’t be complete until the landscaping is in place.
- Water-wise does not mean a lack of color. We select plants that bloom from Spring through Fall, but are more native to Northwest Colorado.
- Water-wise plants means you’ll use less water for irrigation — a huge advantage when water restrictions are in place in Routt County.
- We will share with you the many alternatives you can select from with draught-resistant plants.
Put the Gecko team to work on your landscaping project. We don’t just design for today — we design for the future. It will save you time, money and precious water.
