How it Works

Lawn Removal

Our Lawn Removal Service comprises the physical removal of your lawn, along with an optional consultation with our xeriscape experts. Additionally, we provide a portal for project resources.

** Please note that our services currently do not include roto-tilling, soil amending, planting, mulch delivery, complete irrigation conversions, or any other landscaping services. **

On the scheduled day of your project, our process begins with the use of a sod cutter to remove the lawn to a depth of approximately two inches below the soil line. Following this, we responsibly remove all the cut material and transport it to a permitted composting facility, at no additional cost to you. Finally, we meticulously rake the area smooth and ensure a clean sweep-up for a seamless completion of the project.


Our regular Lawn Removal Service rate for the 2024 season is $2.50 per square foot. Many customers are eligible for a discount through our partnerships with Colorado water utilities. If your utility offers a discount, you’ll pay just $1.00 per square foot, up to a predetermined maximum set by your utility. We have a 200 square foot minimum for all projects. Additionally, you could also be eligible for up to three discounted low-water Garden In A Box kits through our Lawn Replacement Program.

Project Completion

Projects typically commence in May and continue through September each year, weather permitting. Unfortunately, lawn removal during winter or early spring is not feasible. Our workdays typically span from 8 am to 4 pm, and the majority of projects are efficiently completed within half a day or less. Appointments and discounts are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, reflecting the consistently high demand. To guarantee securing your discount, we strongly advise applying at your earliest convenience.

Priority Deadline – April 1, 2024

Our priority deadline offers you the opportunity to secure your discount first, giving you the flexibility to submit photos, measure your project, and confirm details at a later date. This allows you to prioritize your discount while providing the convenience to complete additional steps when it suits you.

Completing the necessary steps by the Priority Deadline secures priority status for earliest removal, best opportunities for discounted services and preferred scheduling before those who complete the process later.

Missing the deadline
Submitting your materials after the priority deadline will result in your application being moved to the bottom of the list for your designated discount providers’ allocated discounts. To maximize your chances of securing preferred discounts, it’s advisable to meet the priority deadline.

“Great program, that highly incentivizes people to go water-wise. Work crew was great – polite, hard workers, good communication, on time. Popular program, so I think having more crews early in season would be good to enable timely planting.”
