Brazos County Arboretum & Demonstration Idea Garden


Visit Our County Garden

Visit our County garden at 2619 Highway 21, West in Bryan, Texas, which is open to the public daily at no charge. See plants that grow and thrive in Brazos County landscapes. You can observe, listen and learn about Earth-Kind® landscape practices that are in tune with nature.

Come see our award winning butterfly garden that features a spinning butterfly identification wheel.  Nestled among its flowers and grasses is LARV – our Texas sized caterpillar who is waiting to greet you.  The garden is a certified Monarch Waystation and a registered Pollinator Site.

Enjoy a walk through the roses, herbs and vegetables.  See how compost happens and feast your eyes on Texas Superstar plants that grow in spite of all that Texas’ weather throws at them.  Inspect the amazing rainwater harvesting tanks or relax in the shade garden.

While you’re at the DIG, stroll through the neighboring Brazos County Arboretum and stand in the shade of trees that are just right for growing in this part of Texas.

The DIG is made possible by Master Gardener volunteers and community supporters who use the best of organic and traditional gardening principles to conserve water, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, decrease landscape wastes entering landfills and conserve energy through landscaping.
