Craft your own SpokaneScape: DIY with Dryland

Updated: Aug 4, 2023

Are you a DIY enthusiast with dreams of transforming your outdoor space into a regenerative landscape that not only conserves water but also qualifies for valuable SpokaneScape rebates? Look no further than "DIY with Dryland," a package built just for you by Dryland Revival, Spokane's regenerative landscaping company. With our specialized expertise, tailored designs, and comprehensive guidance, you can now achieve your dream of a sustainable and beautiful outdoor space while contributing to a greener, water-efficient community.


Regenerative landscapes go beyond traditional gardening by focusing on environmental restoration, sustainability, and water conservation. By replacing thirsty turfgrass with drought-tolerant and native plants, you can significantly reduce water usage, minimize chemical reliance, and foster biodiversity. These practices not only benefit the ecosystem but also contribute to creating a vibrant and resilient landscape that can adapt to the local climate, making it the perfect choice for homeowners in Spokane.


At Dryland Revival, we understand that some homeowners are eager to take a hands-on approach to transform their outdoor spaces. That's why we developed the "DIY with Dryland" package – an all-in-one solution to help you create your regenerative landscape while qualifying for SpokaneScape rebates through the WaterWise Spokane program.


The journey begins with our team of expert landscape designers who will work closely with you to understand your vision, preferences, and landscaping goals. Designs can take many forms, and we take care to stress the ways you'll be using your space to ensure maximum enjoyment year in and year out after you're done with your install. We take into account factors such as sunlight exposure, soil conditions, and local climate to craft a tailored landscape design that aligns perfectly with your DIY aspirations. Whether you're looking for a low-maintenance oasis or a vibrant pollinator-friendly garden, our customized designs will help you achieve your dream landscape. If there are any edits you'd like us to make, your designer will work with you to help you flesh out any details you aren't 100% satisfied with after the first go-round.


Once your personalized design is complete, we provide you with a comprehensive plant list containing recommended species perfectly suited to thrive in your specific environment. Our plant choices prioritize native and drought-tolerant varieties, ensuring that your landscape not only flourishes with minimal water requirements but also attracts local wildlife and enhances biodiversity. In addition to plants, we'll also include our recommended materials to work with to construct your ideal yard. Some people feel lost when trying to figure out what type of pathway they'd like to build and what materials and equipment they should use to install it. We'll tell you what you need, how much, and where to get it. With our recommendations, you can create a sustainable and captivating habitat in your own backyard.


The heart of the "DIY with Dryland" package is the detailed and user-friendly how-to manual. This guide, meticulously prepared by our seasoned experts, walks you through each step of the landscape implementation process. From soil preparation and irrigation setup to pathway construction, planting techniques, and maintenance tips, we've got you covered. Even if you're new to landscaping, this manual empowers you to make informed decisions, take confident action, and bring your vision to life. WaterWise Spokane also provides a fantastic video library you can use to supplement the learning we'll provide.


Embarking on a regenerative landscaping journey through "DIY with Dryland" offers numerous advantages:

  1. Water Conservation: By choosing drought-tolerant plants and reducing or eliminating turfgrass, you can significantly cut down on water usage, reducing your ecological footprint and saving on utility bills.

  2. Spokanescape Rebates: As a SpokaneScape Certified contractor, Dryland Revival ensures that your DIY landscape qualifies for valuable rebates offered through the WaterWise Spokane program. We'll help you navigate the application process and recoup some of your investment while contributing to a sustainable community.

  3. Biodiversity: Native plants attract local wildlife, such as butterflies, birds, and bees, fostering biodiversity and creating a thriving ecosystem in your backyard.

  4. Low Maintenance: Regenerative landscapes are designed to be low-maintenance, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your outdoor space and less time on arduous upkeep tasks.

  5. Environmental Impact: By participating in regenerative landscaping, you actively contribute to combating climate change, reducing pollution, and promoting environmental sustainability.


Some people absolutely love every part of constructing an oasis from the blank canvas that is their yard, but others enjoy only certain parts -- like planting! If you'd like to have us do the more technical, strenuous parts of your landscape overhaul, like turf removal, pathway and hardscape construction, edging fabrication, boulder placement, etcetera, we'd be more than happy to take that off your plate. Do more of the things you love (like planting) and enjoy your DIY landscape even faster.
