With blooms of reds, pinks, blues, and yellows, this new garden is a perfect complement to any Front Range yard. Additionally attract the butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard with sages, penstemons, and grasses. This garden includes 15 plants and has three unique 60 sq. ft. plant by number designs.

What To Expect

  • Our xeric gardens feature anywhere from 14 to 30 starter plants in 4-inch pots.** Plants will be small relative to their mature size, and they will not be in full bloom.
  • "First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap!" During the 1st and 2nd growing season, 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 3 years for your Xeriscape garden to reach full maturity!
  • 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 or two 2 ft. x 1 ft. trays (pictured left).
**When necessary, Resource Central shall select appropriate plant substitutions.

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!"
