Advice from the Owner

There are a lot of great things about our new landscaping! This includes our water usage being reduced significantly and utilizing the strips of unused land between the street and sidewalk (aka tree lawn) of a large city corner lot. The Garden In A Box plants are all native and drought resistant - which means they will thrive with basic care. Additionally, we are thrilled with the descriptions of each plant and design plans that came with the boxes. We participated in the Slow the Flow program, Garden In A Box and the Lawn Removal Consultation.
