Landscape Information and Forms

Landscape professionals are required to follow the Town’s Landscaping and Irrigation Performance Standards and Criteria Manual (Landscape Manual) which outlines the policies, procedures, performance standards and minimum criteria. The criteria provide comprehensive water-efficient design, installation and maintenance standards in a manner that balances quality of life with the overall responsibilities of the Town as a water provider. (Individual residents are not held to this code.)

In Castle Rock, water conservation and landscaping work hand-in-hand. This section will give you the information needed to design, build and maintain a quality landscape and efficient irrigation system. The following are forms and other information required for landscaping / irrigation projects:
