Residential Consulting

With more than 10 years of experience harvesting rainwater and growing lush, vibrant landscapes across Southern Arizona, our team is here to support local residences across Santa Cruz and Cochise Counties. Our rainwater harvesting and permaculture design certified team is ready to help you “plant the rain”, transform your landscape into an ecologically impactful refuge, and grow resilient food plants for yourselves and your wild neighbors. 

Our Approach

Grounded in an ethic of ecological restoration, we create resilient landscapes poised for a changing climate. We harvest the rain, shaping the earth to better infiltrate rainwater. We select plants that can survive and thrive on the rain alone (after a year or two of initial support). We incorporate permaculture principles to reduce long-term maintenance, enhance some natural elements (shade, wildlife, views) while minimizing others (sun, wind, flooding).
