“I believe this is absolutely the best way for a rookie gardener (or someone without a lot of time to spend on tending their garden) to install a garden. My first Garden in a Box is three years old now and I get many compliments on it.”

“Each year I am eliminating more grass and finding ways to reduce the water bill. Garden in a Box has been a boon to accomplishing my goals.”

“This made replacing my grass sooo much easier. Having others ID attractive plants that work without watering, after the first year, has removed so many points in the decision process that might have stopped me. Great program!!!”
