Garden in a Box kits soon for sale


Get ready to plant a garden for a greener future! The City of Brighton Utilities Department in partnership with Resource Central invites the public to purchase a plant through the Garden In A Box Program. Through this partnership, City of Brighton utility customers can receive a $25 discount off of the water-wise garden kits while supplies last. Sales open to the public on March 1. 

Residents can choose from 12 Garden In A Box kits with the $25 discount, with boxes ranging in size from 60 to 100 square feet and including anywhere from 15 to 32 starter plants. Box kit selections range from vibrant hardy xeric (low-water) perennials to mixtures of cool and warm-season crops including leafy greens, squash, tomatoes and more. Gift certificates are also available for purchase ranging from $25 to $150 ($25 discount also applicable). 

Regardless of expertise, the program provides a significant water conservation tool in the form of a plant-by-number garden kit. These professionally-designed gardens improve the beauty and water efficiency of any landscape. Each box kit includes starter plants, a plant and care guide and plant-by-number maps, making this perfect for all gardening levels.

Find the perfect garden for you and your landscape by visiting Garden kits will be available for pick-up in May — details will be released on the City’s website and social media accounts at a later date.

For more information, visit, email or call 303-999-3820 ext. 222.

About Garden In A Box

Garden In A Box is a water conservation program of Resource Central (formerly Center for Resource Conservation). Garden kits are offered in partnership with local and regional water utilities in support of their commitment to water conservation. They are also available to customers outside these partnerships, starting at $79 and are very competitively priced. When coupled with RC’s Water-Wise Landscape Seminars, community members across the Front Range can gain valuable expertise that will strengthen their conservation practices and benefit them for years to come.
