Water Catchment

We build systems of rainwater catchment, from rain barrels to rain gardens. Especially now, with heavier rains in the spring and longer droughts through the summer, good design is key to rain water catchment and use.

  • Rainbarrels 
  • Rain Gardens 
  • Swales on-contour
  • Irrigation systems (from spigot or rain barrels)
