    Sterling Ranch prides itself on being a forward-thinking community. From the outset, we knew the key to building a thriving community at Sterling Ranch would be an unrelenting commitment to our values. We also believed partnerships would play an integral role, so we set out to cultivate meaningful relationships with sustainability-minded organizations. With its deep knowledge of plants and water conservation practices and its commitment to stewardship, Denver Botanic Gardens was a natural fit.

    A Beneficial Partnership

    In the West, we must be mindful of our use of resources — particularly water. Consideration must be given to all things gardening and landscaping. Possessing a shared outlook and commitment to water stewardship, we knew Denver Botanic Gardens would be an important partner as we developed Sterling Ranch: “Outdoor water use accounts for more than half of Denver’s water consumption. The Gardens is committed to showcasing beautiful gardens appropriate for a semi-arid climate while advancing water-efficient gardening and agriculture principles through educational programs and partnerships with like-minded organizations.”

    The Denver Botanic Gardens is recognized as a world leader in steppe climate horticulture. As such, the partnership with Denver Botanic Gardens has benefited Sterling Ranch time and again. From the beautification of our community by selecting water-wise plants to the design of our smart water-conservation strategies, we’ve gleaned invaluable guidance from this trusted source. Our thoughtful water-wise landscaping guidelines, for both homeowners and collective shared spaces such as pockets parks, was designed with care alongside Garden experts. Sterling Ranch boasts inspiring landscaping, featuring appropriate plants that thrive in our unique climate in the Colorado foothills. We’re proud that we’re doing all we can in our sustainability-focused community to preserve precious resources, for today’s residents and future generations.
