Subject: Garden-In-A-Box Plant Sale in Greeley
The City of Greeley in partnership with The Center for ReSource Conservation (CRC) announces its annual Garden-In-A-Box Xeriscape garden sale. Gardens-In-A-Box are professionally designed, plant by number Xeriscape gardens that make drought resistant gardening easy, affordable and convenient.
The designs are filled with vibrant flowers and eye pleasing textures, while maintaining low water needs. Xeriscape gardens require less than half the water of bluegrass lawns and, according to Colorado Water Wise, can increase property values by up to 15 percent. “Garden-In-A-Box is a simple and low cost way for people to incorporate Xeriscape into their yards,” said Ruth Quade, Greeley’s Water Conservation Coordinator.
The Garden-In-A-Box kit provides the plants and professionally developed, easy-to-follow planting and care instructions. Gardens cost between $99 and $134, depending on the design chosen. Residents in Greeley are eligible for a $25 discount at the time of purchase thanks to partnerships between CRC and Greeley.
Gardens can be ordered online at www.gardeninaboxco.org
or by calling 303.999.3820 ext. 222. This program is expected to sell out, so purchase your garden early. Gardens will be available for pickup on May 31 at Greeley’s Xeriscape Garden at 2503 Reservoir Road between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and noon.
