Garden In A Box & Plant Material

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

Our Lawn Replacement Gardens are separate from the Resource Central Garden In A Box program. We manage different inventories and specific garden pick-up schedules to closely match the lawn removal process.

If You’re Ordering Both:

If you’re ordering gardens separately and in addition to the Lawn Replacement program, please note our pick-up dates for lawn replacements. It’s best to align your garden store order with the pick-up date you select for our program.

April 1 Priority Deadline Applicants – Garden Pick-ups:

June 1st – Greenwood Village City Hall
June 6th – Erie Ball Fields
June 7th – Denver Auraria Campus
June 8th – Westminster City Hall

June 17 Priority Deadline Applicants, you will select your August pick-up date in the coming months.

If Purchasing Separately: 

For standalone garden purchases, please select a June pick-up date, as our lawn removals won’t commence until the final week of May, depending on the weather.

If Purchasing Your Own Replacement Materials: 

Keep in mind that to participate in this program, you must be replacing with waterwise materials. CSU Extension and High Country Gardens are good resources for waterwise perennial plants. You can also replace with native or low-water grasses such as Buffalograss, Blue Gramma, DogTuff or use clover and wildflowers.

About Our Gardens:

Our gardens draw inspiration from Golden Hour and Native Shadows. You can explore the plant materials and planting maps tailored to the Lawn Replacement sizes below.

Sun Gardens | Part Shade Gardens

Taking care of your plants until your removal service:

  • Water your plants in their pots until they are ready to be planted. The plants in your garden will benefit from deep, infrequent waterings and prefer to dry out between watering.
  • Before planting, make sure to leave plants outside during the warm, summer days and bring them inside a garage or porch at night if temperatures get below freezing. 

Preparing for your plants after removal service:

  • Consider your watering method prior to planting. We strongly recommend using a drip system for watering efficiency once plants are established.
  • Dig your plant holes
  • Lay your mulch, rock, ground cover around the pre-dug plan holes. Mulch will help retain soil moisture and reduce soil temperature fluctuations.
