Garden In A Box

Beautiful landscapes made easy



We are gearing up for the 2018 gardens - which go on sale March 1.



Looking to spruce up the garden, but don't know where to start? Garden In A Box may be the answer.

Garden In A Box, a selection of professionally designed perennial gardens comprised of Xeric (low water) plants, offers residents a simple approach to an eye-catching yard. These do it yourself garden kits come with 14 to 29 starter plants, a comprehensive Plant and Care Guide, and one to three plant by number maps. Regardless of expertise, you can save water and beautify your landscape with these affordable gardens.  

Whether you are looking to redesign a portion of your yard, attract bees and butterflies, or simply increase your curb appeal, Garden In A Box makes it easy! All of the plants are locally grown in Colorado, and once established will need little to no irrigation to thrive, giving you big, beautiful savings. Plus, with many options to choose from, you can find the perfect garden for shade, sun, and everything in between.

There are seven different gardens with options for sun, shade and high altitudes. The gardens cover areas from 60 to 100 sq. ft. Each garden has between 14 and 30 hardened off, starter plants potted in 4-inch containers. All are locally grown and bee-safe.

Gardens are offered by Castle Rock Water in partnership with ReSource Central in support of our community’s commitment to water conservation.


As a Castle Rock Water customer, you are eligible for a $25 discount while supplies last! Please check back in March for the new gardens.


Turf replacement


While it is not necessary to remove turf to purchase or plant a Garden In A Box, this is a primary intent of this program. Removing the water-guzzling lawn and replacing it with these vibrant, low-water use plants will increase the beauty while decreasing the need of water in your yard. When turf is removed, the amount of potential water saved from one 100 sq. ft. garden is 1,043 gallons/growing season!  Plus, (upon annual approval from Town Council) Castle Rock Water offers a turf removal rebate--$1 per square foot!   What are you waiting for?
