Water harvesting landscapes offer a variety of benefits to your property and the wider environments in which we all live. At High Desert, we think landscapes that take advantage of free stormwater while supporting native plant communities are a great way to combine beauty and function. But we also understand that each property is different, which is why we created the video below.

Taking the exciting leap to transform your landscape into an ecologically productive water harvesting garden can be a difficult decision to make. In this video, High Desert Native Plants founder Mike Gaglio offers a brief tour of a water-harvesting landscape in central El Paso. Mike offers three reasons why we think it’s such a good idea to integrate passive water harvesting principles into your landscape design.
