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 beautiful plants that require little water and thrive in our Colorado soil and arid climate. Included are a selection of xeriscape perennial starter plants, as well as a professional “plant-by-number” design, planting and care instructions, all available below retail costs. Each garden kit comes with 15-30 locally started plants and customers can choose their favorite low water gardens out of the perennial xeric garden kits available.

These water saving gardens retail at prices ranging between $104 - $144. But, through a partnership with the City of Arvada, the CRC is offering a $25 savings for the first 200 kits ordered! 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. Please note, the $25 discount does not apply to vegetable gardens, only perennial options.

For garden questions call 303-999-3820 Ext. 222.
