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

So easy and the plants are very healthy

I am very lucky to have been able to purchase my Garden In A Box. All the instructions on how and where to plant were very easy to understand. My plants are growing very nicely and are healthy... Thank you.

City of Arvada Customer

Overall a great experience

So far very pleased with the plant vitality and appearance; looking forward to see how it matures. The example layouts were helpful. Center personnel at the pick-up event were knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

What a blast!

I hadn't had a garden in over 35 years so I had a blast last year planting veggies and perennials. The perennials have really taken off this year. I planted the Victory Garden this year, which the rabbits seem to be enjoying (!) and another Shades of Summer perennial garden where I took out a giant pine tree in my front yard. So I'm looking forward to watching it grow. Now I'm considering taking out more grass next year and putting raised garden boxes to fill up my back yard. The layout guides are so helpful for the new gardener in me. Thank you!
