Have you guys ever heard of rainwater harvesting? We were recently at a convention when the topic came up, naturally, we were curious as to what that is and what kind of benefits it has. Rainwater harvesting is collecting the run-off from a structure or other impervious surface in order to store it for later use. Traditionally, this involves harvesting the rain from a roof. The rain will collect in gutters that channel the water into downspouts and then into some sort of storage vessel. Rainwater collection systems can be as simple as collecting rain in a rain barrel or as elaborate as harvesting rainwater into large cisterns to supply your entire household demand and landscaping needs! 

Here are some of the benefits of switching to a Rainwater harvesting system 

Rainwater is a relatively clean and absolutely free source of water

 You have total control over your water supply (ideal for cities with water restrictions) 

It is socially acceptable and environmentally responsible 

It promotes self-sufficiency and helps conserve water Rainwater is better for landscape plants and gardens because it is not chlorinated

It can solve the drainage problems on your property while providing you with free water

 It uses simple technologies that are inexpensive and easy to maintain

we hope this post helps you with all of your landscaping needs, 
till next time!
