Low-Water Gardening Made Easy

Garden In A Box offers professionally designed, waterwise, perennial garden kits tailor-made for Colorado yards. We make it easy to get that professional look by including plant-by-number maps, seasonal maintenance suggestions, and watering recommendations to help your low-water garden thrive year after year. 

Fall is the New Spring!

Spring Garden In A Box kits are sold out but our next planting season is right around the corner! Order gardens in summer, pick up and plant in late August / early September. Don’t miss out on the sale, sign up for updates on the fall season.

How it Works

1. Measure your space and determine sun exposure.

2. Order your Garden In A Box online.

3. Remove lawn, if needed. Our kits are designed to replace sections of lawn for the most water-saving impacts.

4. Pick up your Garden In A Box.

5. Plant and mulch your Garden In A Box.

6. After the first season, dial back the water and begin saving.

55% of residential water use on the Front Range is used outdoors, mostly on lawns!

“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!!!”
