Rain Garden

Use water-harvesting earthworks to shape and sculpt your yard.

You'll capture the rainwater pouring off your roof or hardscape to create a lush, water-conscience yard. We’ll create a custom design and grading plan for your site to meet your needs and create a functional and aesthetic rain garden.

Rain gardens are a simple, low-cost way to take advantage of the rain that falls on your property to support shade trees and other native plants that improve cooling, beautify your yard, and improve your soil. Rain gardens can also help resolve flooding, ponding, and erosion problems. This is an ideal first water-harvesting system and can also be integrated easily with Greywater to Landscape systems or Rain Tanks.

Logan Byers
Water Harvesting Designer and Project Manager

Logan entered the rainwater harvesting field during monsoon 2006 when she dug her first curbside basin after curiously observing street runoff purposefully entering her neighbor’s yard through a curb cut. Her design style is fluid and encourages the intersection of plants, water, wildlife, and humans. Over the years, Logan has worked for larger landscape companies, run her own landscape contracting business, earned a master’s degree in Landscape Architecture from the UA, completed the Sonoran Permaculture Guild’s 72 hour design course, and become a certified water harvesting practitioner through WMG.

Emma Stahl-Wert
Co-op Program Manager

Emma spent her first 21 years on the East Coast, but the last 7 have been dedicated entirely to becoming deeply familiar with the plants and climate of this region. With a Permaculture Design Certification from the Sonoran Permaculture Guild and years of experience installing water harvesting landscapes at countless Tucsonan's homes, she has developed a desert oasis aesthetic and does not miss her temperate home's flora one bit. Combining water harvesting, to grow as much shade as possible, with striking cactus plantings and rockwork that highlight our unique desert flora, is her favorite approach. Her design work is typically geared towards the client who will be installing landscapes through the Co-op program OR doing a DIY project.
