Landscaping does not need to be hard. New gardeners must consider so many things. Which plants? Where to plant them? When to plant them? How to space them? Get these questions answered with Greeley Water Conservation’s Garden In A Box Program.
With special offers for residents, the City of Greeley Water Conservation Program, in partnership with Resource Central, begins its eighth annual spring Garden In A Box Xeriscape garden sale on March 2.
These boxes help those who decided this is the year to get the yard in shape but need a little help to get the gorgeous, colorful garden without paying the professional price tag. With just a click, Greeley residents can order a xeric (low-water) garden kit in March and then pick up their order and start planting in May.
These pre-designed kits are tailored to Colorado soil and climate. The simple plant-by-number maps take the guesswork out of buying and planting. Plus, the garden kits can help save water compared to a traditional turfgrass lawn — not to mention the savings on a water bill.
Starting at $109, there is a Garden In A Box to fit any budget or yard. To sweeten the deal, Greeley Water Conservation is offering a limited number of $25 discounts to Greeley water customers to encourage conservation. The garden kits sell out quickly, so visit ResourceCentral.org/Gardens today and spend time enjoying your yard this summer.
