Fruit Tree + Veggie Garden Water Budget

We compare your current and future food production water demands to your potential rainwater and greywater supplies to craft a water budget that fully or partially meets your water demands with rainwater and/or greywater sources. A water budget can be a stand-alone service or a great addition to any of the above design services.

This service is provided via phone and email conversations. If you prefer to discuss in person, this service can be combined with an hourly site consultation. We gather information about your landscape, then provide a written report that combines verbal and graphic recommendations for how to meet your landscape water demands with  rainwater and greywater sources.
