2024 Priority Deadlines

Late Summer – June 17 (July-September Removal)
After June 17th – items must be completed within 30 days of Pre-Approval

What is it?
Our priority deadline offers you the opportunity to secure your discount first, giving you the flexibility to submit photos, measure your project, and confirm details at a later date. This allows you to prioritize your discount while providing the convenience to complete additional steps when it suits you.

Completing the necessary steps by the Priority Deadline secures priority status for discounts and gardens before those who complete the process later.

Missing the deadline
Submitting your materials after the priority deadline will result in your application being moved to the bottom of the list for your designated discount providers’ allocated discounts. To maximize your chances of securing preferred discounts, it’s advisable to meet the priority deadline.

Even after the priority deadline has passed, you can still apply!
The deadline helps us plan projects efficiently and allows us to offer additional discounts to those on the cancellation list. Applying later doesn’t disqualify you; it simply helps us better organize and enhance opportunities for everyone involved.

Materials Needed by the deadline:

  1. Application – this is to claim your spot (and discount/gardens, if applicable)
  2. Contract – tell us more about your project, finalize the sq ft and provide photos
  3. Confirmation – lock in your project

Lawn Replacement Gardens vs. Resource Central Garden In A Box Program
