Landscaping in our arid Colorado climate doesn’t have to be a challenge. The Center for ReSource Conservation (CRC), a non-profit serving the Front Range, has simplified water-wise gardening with Garden-In-A-Box kits.
Each kit comes with a professional “plant-by-number” design which uses beautiful plants that require little water and thrive in our Colorado soil and arid climate. A selection of xeriscape perennial starter plants, as well as planting and care instructions, are now available below retail costs. Each garden kit comes with 15-28 plants and customers can choose their favorite low water gardens out of the three perennial xeric garden kits available.
These water saving gardens retail at prices ranging between $99-$135. Through a partnership with the City of Arvada the CRC is offering these kits at a savings of $25 each. When you log on to order, you will need to designate your location as Arvada and you will automatically receive this discount when checking out.
All Perennial Gardens are available by pre-ordering. Garden kits can be viewed and ordered at GardenStore.ConservationCenter.org. *Please note, the $25 discount does not apply to vegetable gardens, only perennial options.
For garden questions call 303-999-3820 Ext. 222. Box gardens can be picked up at the Sustain Arvada Festival at Wolff Park on May 3, 2014 or at one of the other convenient locations listed on the CRC website.
