Consider the benefits of harvesting rain water for your garden:

  • Rainwater is free
  • Rainwater is a clean, chemical-free source of water for plants
  • Rainwater seeps into the soil, pushing salts from tap water down and away from the plant’s root zone
  • Rainwater allows for better root growth and water absorption, increasing the drought tolerance of plants
  • Rainwater harvesting reduces off-site flooding and erosion by holding rainwater on the site
  • Harvesting rainwater reduces dependence on ground water and the amount of money spent on water

All we now need is lots of rain . . . .
