Go n Grow: Gardening Made Simple

Do you love gardening but aren’t quite sure which plants to choose for your landscape to blossom? Having trouble finding plants that look great and thrive season after season?  Take the guesswork out of finding the right plant for the right spot, with perfect plant combinations, by purchasing a custom-designed water-saving Go n Grow Garden!

Our pre-planned gardens include sure-fire plants, hand selected by Rooted In Horticulturists– proven to flourish in our challenging Texas soils and harsh and unpredictable climate.

START SMALL, SAVE BIG! Go n Grow Gardens include 24 starter plants sown in 3-inch pots and bundled into a 2 ft. x 1 ft. box.  Each plant is tagged and numbered to correspond with our professional designs to make planting as easy as possible for your DIY installation!

Select from our 3 professionally designed PLANT-BY-NUMBER garden layouts to get started converting those empty, bare spaces in your landscape into colorful perennial gardens. Each boxed garden comes with a free comprehensive planting and maintenance guide, including everything you will need to know to prepare for, plant, and manage your new garden for years to come.

Shade Garden

Is your landscape “throwing shade”? This garden just might be the solution to your landscape’s low light levels! Designed to thrive in areas that receive less than 5 hours of sunlight, our Go n Grow Garden: Shade Box includes shade-loving plants, that in addition to offering a variety of textures, will brighten your shady spots by introducing vibrant colors with their foliage and blooms! With three design options, you’ll be able to turn the bare spot in your shady corner, the low light area on the north side of your fence or wall, or the muddy patch under your tree into a garden area that you can be proud of. Cool off and relax in the shade this season and take a break from the Texas sun with your very own Go n Grow Garden: Shade Box!
