Lifestyle Farm Lots

River Bend Farm and Ranch Lots range in size from 2 acres to 12 acres with many of them including private wells. All farm lots will also be served by a community Irrigation well.

The Enclave

Irrigation Water

Irrigation water is distributed to all agricultural farm lots from a 400 gallon per minute agricultural shared well. Variable costs are shared by the water users. A one time fee is assessed to install an individual lot automatic schedule valve to the irrigation main line. Each lot will receive abundant water on schedule 3 times per week. The schedule duration is more than adequate to irrigate all but 1.5 acres of each lot. Recommended sprinklers are Nelson Big Guns in the center of the irrigated land trimmed by smaller Nelson sprinklers in each corner. Nelson also provides many other agricultural watering solutions.

Potable Water

Water is supplied by St. David Springs Water District. The water source is three 800-foot-deep wells engineered for the St. David Springs Water District communities. The sweet artesian water is elevated to the surface by the hydraulic pressure of an enormous underground lake that originates to the east at the Dragoon Mountains. St. David Springs has received a certificate of assured water supply from the State of Arizona.

Perimeter Fencing

All agricultural farm lots are fenced with Bufftech CertainTeed® three rail CertaGrain® vinyl fencing.

  • Post & Rail fencing with CertaGrain® texture offers the authentic look of painted wood fencing with the low maintenance and proven performance of Bufftech’s premium vinyl design.
  • 3-Rail is 2″ x 6″ with 12’ rails on 6’ centers.
  • River Bend Ranch color is Arctic Blend
  • Rails are suitable for animal containment
  • ColorLast® is integral to the post and rail for fade protection.
  • Solar fence post caps are available.

Animal Control

Eliminate horse visiting over a common fence rail.

We recommend HorseGuard ribbon on the top rail to preventing livestock visiting over the rails.

The HorseGuard brown color selection compliments the Weathered Blend CertaiGrain fencing. The HorseGuard ribbon is easy to add to your fence.

Access to BLM land

All lots that border BLM land may access the BLM land from a common property line. The interior agricultural lots may enter BLM from the west end of McCommas Lane.
