The Falcon Garden Club was founded in 1999 by Falcon area gardeners. We are learning and trying out gardening techniques in our Colorado xeriscape environment. There is usually a horticulture related presentation at our meetings. If you are anywhere in the Black Forest, Elbert, Peyton or Falcon area please join us the third Saturday each month at the High Prairie Library in Falcon at 10am as we share ideas and knowledge to help make your gardening experience more successful.

The little town of Falcon, Colorado is located 10 miles east of Colorado Springs. It was founded in 1888 and was probably the junction of the Rock Island Railroad and the Denver Texas Ft. Worth Railroad. We are a growing community with some very challenging growing conditions. We are barely a zone 5 and we have wind, rabbits and of course, hail as soon as the Iris bloom.

Simple Solutions for Small Spaces

Looking for simple design ideas for a small yard or a small area? These waterwise designs were created for common areas of your property using a dozen or less Plant Select® plants. Careful consideration was given to each design so that the plants meet similar light and cultural requirements. If you try one of these designs, we’d love to see your pictures!
