Water Saving Programs

Plants and Flowers

The City of Arvada partners with Resource Central to provide our water customers with opportunities to save money, conserve water and beautify their landscapes through four programs:

Garden in a Box

City of Arvada water customers are eligible for discounts on Garden In A Box kits, while supplies last. Each kit comes with beautiful plants that require little water and thrive in our Colorado soil and arid climate. 

In the spring, gardens are available to order in March to be planted in late May and June.

In the fall, gardens are available to order in July and August to be planted in late August and September. 

  • Please note: the resident discount may not apply to the fall selection depending on availability. 

Visit Resource Central's Garden page.
