Why waste tap water watering plants when rainwater works better?
All you have to do is harvest it!
Rainwater harvesting is capturing and storing rainfall to
irrigate plants and animals. All you need for harvesting is a good
rainstorm and something to collect it in. It's that easy.
Your system can be simple, using contoured
areas so that water flows directly to planted areas; or
sophisticated, featuring storage systems that can contain captured
water for later use, such as rain barrels.
