Daily Acts is excited to launch a new fee-for-service arm of the non-profit, called Sustainability Services!

This program may be a great option if you’re ready to grow your personal garden paradise but need help with planning, designing, and implementation. We are now available for hire to provide consultation, design, and DIY installation support services for residences, businesses, and schools.

Our goal is to help you create a verdant, abundant landscape that is water-wise, multi-functional, and gorgeous! We focus on drought-tolerant plants that are edible, medicinal, and habitat-providing. Rainwater harvesting and graywater reuse systems can also be incorporated into designs to reduce long-term costs and make your landscape even more eco-groovy.

We also work with folks who want to organize their own work party. We provide day-of education and project management to guide your group through the process of installing an ecologically friendly landscape.

See tabs below for a full menu of our services and to schedule a consultation:

We’ll visit to give you ideas and advice for transforming your yard and/or siting graywater, rainwater storage, rain gardens, fruit trees, and other sustainability features. An important first step before other services, or a helpful standalone service if you just need a bit of guidance.
