2014 gardens go on sale March 1. Garden quantities are limited and sell out quickly. Don't miss your chance.

The City of Longmont partners with the Center for ReSource Conservation to offer our Water Utility customers a simple solution in water conservation - pre-planned, economical garden kits suited for Colorado’s arid climate. Garden-in-a-Box is intended to simplify water-wise gardening by providing professional “plant-by-number” designs, a selection of xeriscape plants, and planting and care instructions all below retail costs.

Water-Wise Philosophy

Landscaping in our arid Colorado climate doesn’t have to be a challenge. There are many wonderful plants that require little water and do well in our clay and sandy soils. Put a few of these species together and you’ve created a beautiful xeriscape, or water wise landscape.

With Garden-in-a-Box, the planning and design process is done for you to make establishing your own xeriscape a breeze. Featured designs were created by professional landscape designers with the do-it-your-selfer in mind. All of the xeriscape garden collections thrive in Colorado’s arid climate and prefer full sun or partial shade.
