Transform Your Lawn

The Athmar Park “Transform Your Lawn” program is designed to inspire, empower and support households in our neighborhood to replace their grass with xeriscape and food gardens. It was developed by the Athmar Park Neighborhood Association, and is funded in part by the Sustainable Neighborhood Matching Fund award from the City and County of Denver. Please read more about this here.
