Design Services for You
Our design experts will work with you to create a Sonoran Desert inspired landscape that harvests and conserves water, beautifies your yard, and meets your lifestyle goals.
On-site Consultation. Starts at $190. One of our experts will come to your home to identify opportunities for water harvesting, native and edible landscapes, wildlife habitat, and integrated design elements around your property. This is a great place to start to identify potential projects especially if you are new to water harvesting. The diagram you receive from the on-site consultation will meet the requirements for the Tucson Water rainwater rebate application.
Project Plan. Starts at $275. Our design professionals will visit your home to evaluate opportunities for water harvesting, native and edible landscapes, wildlife habitat, and integrated design elements on your site and provide additional design detail for a specified project area. This plan is the starting point for scheduling a project installation with WMG’s Co-op or Design Build team.
Master Plan. Starts at $575. Our design professionals will visit your home to evaluate your site and create a master plan that integrates water harvesting, native and edible landscapes, wildlife habitat, hardscapes, and other green features. In addition, you will receive written recommendations including a monthly water resource budget and a planting plan for your landscape makeover. Our plan will give you a roadmap for a long-term transformation of your home.
Hourly Design Services. $75/hour. Have a big property, building a new home, making over your neighborhood or HOA, or will you be needing on-call services for a long period of time? Our hourly services are just the fit for you.
Non-Profit Services. $55/hour. Are you a 501(c)3? We offer reasonable hourly services for our fellow non-profit organizations.

Rainwater Harvesting Grant & Loan Program. Everyone should be able to harvest rainwater at home! Rainwater harvesting installations are affordable and simple through our Grant and Loan program paired with our Design Build and Co-op programs.
Ways to Green Your Yard
Rain Garden. Sculpt your landscape to capture the rainwater pouring off your roof or hardscape and create a lush, water-conscious yard. We’ll customize the style and plant palette to meet your needs and create a functional and aesthetic rain garden.
Greywater to Landscape. Our project managers make it a snap to irrigate fruit trees, native plants, and more, with greywater from your laundry, bathroom sinks, showers, and kitchen sink (dark greywater).
Rain Tanks. We will work with you to customize a rain tank system for your landscape and water supply needs. Tank installation includes recommended best practices: all potable-grade materials, leaf diverter, 1st flush pre-filtration, full port valves, and overflow directed to infiltration basin with protective cover.
Green Infrastructure. Turn your sun-baked street into a shady, inviting lane. We will plan your project to capture stormwater to irrigate shade trees and native pollinator plants and help navigate utilities and the permitting process.
Urban Orchard. Be fruit-full and route all accessible greywater sources to irrigate an urban orchard of 3–20 trees. We will utilize water from your laundry, bathroom sink & shower, kitchen sink, and more for your abundant landscape!
Sonoran Food Forest. Our project managers will help you build a multi-layer landscape for food production, shade, and habitat creation, by integrating earthworks, soil building, greywater systems, and rain tanks.
Other Green-Living Features. Ask us about chicken coops, edible landscapes, outdoor showers, soil building, composting toilets, passive solar, and more.
