Passive Rain Water Collection

The benefits of collecting rain water for your garden.

Rainwater Collection

  • Are you a home gardener (either in-ground, raised beds or hydroponic) that is looking for the ideal water source for your precious, organic fruits and vegetables?

  • Does water puddle in places that you don’t want it to?

  • Areas flooding out after a big rain event?  Gutter downspout eroding your home’s foundation?

  • Driveway always full of water?

  • Standing water in unwanted areas?

  • Wish that your fruit, shade or newly planted trees got more water with little effort?

Rain Barrels

If you are a gardener in search of the purest, most sustainable, and highest quality source of water for your fruiting trees, herbs, vegetables and ornamental plants; then we (and your plants) implore you to start using rainwater.  Just let us take the guesswork out of it for you.

Catch it! Installing a rain barrel near a downspout is a simple and effective way to collect rainwater for re-use in the garden using either hand watering or a pump.  Each Rain Barrel installation includes a thorough site analysis, discussion, placement, all plumbing fixtures, pressurization, testing, and demonstration to get you up and running the same day. Embrace the rain!

Earthworks

Slow it! Sink it! Rainwater earthworks are a form of passive rainwater collection that redirects water away from unwanted areas and towards areas where it can be utilized most. This can provide passive watering (read: you do nothing) for fruit and shade trees or naturally filter and recharge our aquifers by use of a roadside swale planted with native plant material, called a rain garden. The beauty of passive rainwater collection is that once the system is built, you only need to let nature run its course.

Do nothing and still enjoy the benefits? We like that!

The before pictures below show rain water puddling at the bottom of a drive way. After the proper installation of an effective rain garden, rain water is naturally diverted away from the driveway into a basin planted with flowering plants and mulch.

Water is a precious resource. Don’t let it run away!
