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.

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.
