What To Expect

  • Our xeric gardens feature anywhere from 6 to 51 starter plants in 4-inch pots. Upon pick up, plants will be small relative to their mature size and they may not be in full bloom.
  • Occasionally things don't grow as planned. At times, we may have to substitute specific plants but we will always do our best to maintain the color and feel of this garden.
  • "First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap!" During the first and second growing seasons, xeric plants will be in the establishment phase – requiring regular watering to encourage a deep taproot system, and not yet having reached their full size. On average, allow two to three years for your Xeriscape garden to reach full maturity!
  • Most gardens will easily fit in a small car  - yes, we're talking Mini Cooper small - unless you ordered multiple gardens (we're not judging). One garden will come in either one, two, or four 2 ft x 1 ft trays, (pictured left). For more information on the size of gardens, visit our FAQs page below.

What Customers Say

Affordable Xeriscaping

"Everyone has been a pleasure to work with, and the time frames for prep and pick up gave me plenty of time to get the work done. This program made xeriscaping affordable. So excited about our new garden!"

City Westminster Customer

Easy Transition from Lawn to Garden

"I thought this was a great idea when I first heard about it and now am completely confirmed in thinking it is a great idea. Having someone with more knowledge of plants than I put together groupings that would go together and providing sample layouts made starting to shift to a xeriscape lawn fairly easy. Thanks!"

City of Fort Collins Customer

Happy Gardener, 2 Years in a Row!

"This is the second time I've gotten a garden. The plants are flourishing - it's great to have the collection curated for you."
