Lawn Busters

Converting Lawns to Luscious WATER-WISE Landscapes


Did you know the average lawn uses 1,800 gallons of water every week? That's over 50% of all residential water usage. Yikes.

Our City Forest is here to help you ditch the thirsty turf in favor of beautiful, drought-tolerant gardens. Our LAWN BUSTERS program helps with everything from planning and planting, to low-water irrigation systems and potential rebate program assistance.

Planet Tree

We love tree-ching.

Our City Forest offers environmental education assemblies and in-class presentations for kindergarten through college-age students. Topics include the benefits of urban shade trees and how we can work together to preserve our urban forest.
