Build Green and Live Healthy!

At Picacho Mountain building green is more than just a fad, we are helping our residents build green and live healthy. Picacho Mountain is proud to be the Southern New Mexico and El Paso region’s only certified build green community.   Our mission is to be the leading developer in the region to support green building and sustainable development.  Our vision is to be a community that demonstrates and promotes green building, solar energy, preservation, conservation, and sustainable development strategies.

Building Green for the Environment…​

Building Green is an energy efficient way to take part in preserving the environment.  Green Build technology reduces the need to burn fossil fuels and helps fight climate change, one of society’s most pressing environmental issues.  In the arid Southwest, water is an especially precious resource.  Xeriscaping and other water conserving techniques preserve our water resources, reduce maintenance, and build value in your home.  Build Green and help save natural resources with:

  • Auto Irrigation Controllers with Rain and/or Wind Sensors
  • Construction Waste Recycling
  • Curbside Recycling
  • Water Wise Plants
  • Dual Flush Toilets
  • Water Harvesting
  • Gray Water Systems
  • Drip Irrigation
  • Xeriscaping
  • Photovoltaic Systems
  • Solar Hot Water Systems
  • Cistern Systems

Build Green for your Health…

Building Green can make your house a healthier place to live.  For years Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and other chemicals have been used in construction materials.  Green homes have better indoor air quality because of reduced exposure to chemicals, mold and other harmful substances.  Use Green Build techniques and breathe easier knowing you’ve made your home a healthier place to live!  Build Green and improve your health with:

  • VOC Free or Low VOC Paint
  • Formaldehyde Free Adhesive
  • Concrete Counter Tops
  • Carpet from Recycled Materials
  • Eco Timber
  • Concrete Stains
  • Sustainable Wood
  • Finger Joint Wood
  • Whole House Exhaust Fans
  • Air Filtration Systems
  • Water Filtration Systems

Build Green and Save Money…

Green homes cost less to operate because they use less energy, less water, and require less maintenance.  The extra cost of “green” design is minimal compared to the energy and tax savings you will receive over the life of your home. If you ever decide to move, a high-performance, “green” home will have a much higher resale value.  Build Green and save money with:

  • Foil-backed Housewraps

  • Tightly Sealed Duct Work
