Transform Thirsty Yards with Plant by Number Kits

Garden In A Box Provides Vibrant Low-Water Designs, No Green Thumb Required

BOULDER, COLO. – Front Range residents are buzzing about the new Garden In A Box kits from Resource Central, a nonprofit conservation organization. In March, over 7,300 garden kits found homes in Colorado communities, signaling the start of a sustainable spring.

Garden In A Box offers easy, low-water landscaping with colorful, pollinator-friendly plants, making it an excellent choice for those who want to refresh their yards while promoting environmental sustainability.

“Garden In A Box takes the guesswork out of sustainable landscaping,” stated Neal Lurie, president & CEO. “With easy plant-by-number designs, these kits require minimal water to achieve maximum impact—a beautiful and sustainable yard.”

Garden In A Box kits include 15 to 30 plants, a comprehensive care guide, plant by number maps, and range from 60 to 100 square feet. Plants are native, deer- and rabbit-resistant, with spring to fall seasonal blooms. This year’s kits include:

  • Bees & Blooms – Enjoy striking pinks, oranges, and yellow hues from midsummer through fall.
  • Butterfly Daydream – Perfect for smaller spaces, create a summer sanctuary with vibrant purple, blue, white, and yellow plants.
  • Golden Hour – Well-suited to Front Range and high altitudes, butterflies, bees, birds will flock to these warm yellow and pink blooms.

Revamp your yard with a Garden In A Box and visit for water-saving projects and stories uploaded by neighbors across the Front Range.

Since 2003, the Garden In A Box program has helped thousands of community members conserve more than 240 million gallons of water.
