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

Colorful and Unique Blooms that Require Little Water

"I think you are providing an awesome service. And I love my front yard knowing that as it gets established, it will need little water - and I have flowers instead of cactus!”

City of Westminster Customer

Take the Guess Work Out of Xeriscaping!

"I loved this program so much! It would have been so difficult to learn about which plants to choose, and to locate them in various nurseries. You did it all for me! The program is very efficient and well communicated. I appreciated the email messages and the ease with which I was able to pick up my plants."
