The Alpenscapes solution is simple: native and sustainable landscaping that thrives in Big Sky, to help Big Sky thrive.

With a changing climate, increased wildfire risk, threatened water quality and supply, the spread of invasive species, and ongoing development, Big Sky’s diverse alpine terrain requires a better approach than thirsty, maintenance-intensive lawns. ​

Water-Wise Practices​

Learn how water-wise solutions can help you conserve water, reduce your bills, and sustain your landscaping - and keep your yard looking well-loved - even in drought conditions. ​​

Native Plants

Embrace the low-maintenance charm of native plants that thrive in our local climate and learn how to combat invasive weeds that threaten our local ecosystem.​
