Time To Start Thinking Spring – Reserve Your Garden-In-A-Box

Screen Shot 2016-02-03 at 1.00.31 PM

Garden In A Box, a selection of professionally designed, perennial gardens that use Xeric (low water) plants, offers residents a simple approach to an eye-catching yard. These do it yourself garden kits come with 15 to 30 starter plants, a comprehensive Plant and Care Guide, and 1 to 3 plant by number maps. Regardless of expertise, you can save water and beautify your landscape with these affordable gardens.

Whether you are looking to redesign a portion of your yard, attract bees and butterflies, or simply increase your curb appeal, Garden In A Box makes it easy! All the plants are locally grown, and once established will need little to no irrigation to thrive, giving you big, beautiful savings. Plus, with many options to choose from, you can find the perfect garden for shade, sun, and everything in between.

Gardens are offered by the Center for ReSource Conservation in partnership with local and regional water utilities in support of their commitment to water conservation.
