Garden In A Box offers a simple approach to learn about and plant water-wise gardens. Regardless of expertise, community members can save water and beautify their properties by purchasing a professionally designed perennial garden that uses Xeric (low water) plants, and includes a comprehensive Plant and Care Guide. When Xeric gardens replace existing turf, the water savings are especially significant, reducing water use by up to 50%.
