Each year, Thornton Water hosts several free events to connect you with tools and resources to enhance water-efficiency in your yard, garden, and home. As always, we invite you to stroll through our Demonstration Gardens to see great examples of xeric gardens and get ideas for your own. And don’t forget to check out our online tips and downloadable resources. We hope to see you in the garden next year!




Water-Wise Landscape Webinars

Check out these water-wise webinars offered through Resource Central on a variety of topics like trees, pollinators, design and plant selection, turf removal, navigating your HOA during a xeriscape conversion, etc. All webinars are open to the public and free. 

Garden In A Box Pick-up

Thornton Water partners with Resource Central to offer discounted Garden In A Box gardens to Thornton water customers. Customers are eligible for a $25 discount on a professionally designed Garden In A Box, while supplies last. Gardens are typically available to purchase, while supplies last, on March 1. Gardens sell out quickly every year, so purchase early. You will select a pickup date and location when you purchase your garden.
