    The Center for ReSource Conservation (CRC) is again making waterwise gardening fun and simple with its annual “Garden-In-A-Box” sale for 2017. Garden-In-A-Box are professionally designed, plant by numbers gardens which contain perennial and Xeric (low-water) plants for your landscaping needs. They make basic xeriscaping easy, affordable and convenient. CRC has again partnered with Denver Water to make gardens available to all residents of Bow Mar at a discounted price where they can receive $25 off select gardens.


    This year’s designs include: the Sunset Garden, Rocky Mountain Retreat, Seasons of Shade, Honey Bee Heaven, Pollinators’ Paradise, Xeric Greatest Hits and the Spaghetti Dinner gardens. The Garden-In-A-Box kit provides the plants and easy-to-follow planting and care instructions. New for this year is the Ivy Rain Barrel to assist you with watering your garden by using rainwater harvesting, which is now legal in Colorado. Gardens cost between $74 and $144, depending on the design chosen and can be ordered online at the CRC’s garden shop from March to June.


    To claim your $25 discount, you will have to first “Proceed to Checkout” in the garden store where you will be prompted to select your water provider, select “Denver Water”. Your discount should then automatically be applied to your order.


    CRC will schedule several “Garden Pick Up Days” at various locations during the months of May and early June. To select your pick up, you must “Proceed to Checkout” on the online store where you will then be prompted to select your pick up location, date, and time.


    Gardens and discounts are limited and always sell out, so make sure you order your garden sooner rather than later!
