Garden In A Box Photo Contest 2021

Garden In A Box Photo Contest 2021

After a record breaking spring Garden In A Box season, we want to celebrate those freshly planted waterwise gardens by hosting the first ever Garden In A Box Photo Contest! Here’s your chance to share photos of your thriving Garden In A Box that you see every day with the community. Inspire others to choose xeric plants and maybe make a neighbor or two jealous along the way.

Not only will the winners of the Garden In A Box Photo Contest receive well-deserved recognition, they will also get a $50 Garden In A Box gift certificate! Enter the contest by sending us a photo intended for one of the three categories below. Participants may also have their photo shared on our social media pages throughout the year – send over your best!

Photo Contest Categories:

  1. Pollinators & Blooms – A photo of that captures a pollinator in your garden & makes us abuzz or aflutter with excitement for waterwise gardening.
  2. Full Garden or Landscape – Can’t choose one plant to photograph? Show off your full garden!
  3. My Garden Close Up – Time for your garden’s close up! Send in a glamour shot that highlights just one or a few plants.
