Pollinator Courtyard


Tucson, AZ

Install Date:

October 2017

The owner never spent time in her barren landscape. We worked together to infuse life into her courtyard. We had most of the impermeable, hot, reflective hardscape removed in order to make this a livable landscape. The remaining brick was shaped so that it “dissolves” into the landscape. Rainwater is directed from the roof to the water harvesting basins, where it supports a vibrant native plant palette. Soon this outdoor living space will be shaded by two lovely native trees and will be a relaxing place to enjoy watching hummingbirds and butterflies.

Design elements included the following:

  • hardscape removal
  • water harvesting earthworks
  • native plants

designed and installed while at Watershed Management Group
