Tucson Botanical Gardens GrowDown!


Tucson Botanical Gardens


Tucson, Arizona

Install Date:


This was a temporary installation for the Tucson Botanical Gardens GrowDown! competition. I was one of three designers chosen to implement my vision for a 15’x20′ plot, showcasing an alternative to the standard desert aesthetic using clean lines and cool colors.

Design elements included the following:

  • ramada-covered deck
  • water harvesting cistern
  • recycled metal rain chain
  • ephemeral water feature
  • veggie and herb garden
  • grape vines
  • pomegranate tree
  • native plants that are edible, medicinal, and attract wildlife
  • compost and mulch made from local landscape waste
  • recycled metal trellises
  • steel edging
  • cool colors
