Go Xeric with a Professionally Designed Garden-In-A-Box

This news was released 680 days ago and may contain inaccurate information.

Fort Collins Utilities is partnering with the Center for ReSource Conservation (CRC) to offer several professionally designed xeriscape gardens. Utilities water customers will receive a $25 discount on each garden.

Water restrictions can be tough on lawns. This is a great opportunity to add a xeriscape with regionally appropriate plants that add curb appeal and cut outdoor water use.

Each Garden-In-A-Box contains 15 to 28 low-water use plants that thrive in Colorado’s arid climate and comes with planting and maintenance instructions. Design options include Western Horizon (15 plants for $99), Morning Sunrise (28 plants for $134) and Shady Jubilee (26 plants for $134). To order, visit or call (303) 999-8320 ext. 222.

Orders must be placed and pre-paid by Tuesday, May 14. Garden-in-a-Box kits will be available for pick up in Fort Collins, Sat., May 18, 9 a.m. to noon, at The Farm at Lee Martinez Park, 600 N. Sherwood St.

For more information, call (970) 221-6700, email , visit or TDD (970) 224-6003.
