Rainwater harvesting is not just about using rain barrels. There are features like swales* (dry stream beds) or mulch or rock filled depressions that allow water to soak into the ground. Not only is this inexpensive to do, but will help your plants thrive, prevent runoff into the storm drains, and can lower your water bill.
Even in San Diego with minimal rain a 1000sq ft roof will capture 600 gallons from 1” of rain.
*Swales are shallow, broad or vegetated channels designed to store and/or convey runoff and remove pollutants. Berms also can be installed across the flow path of a swale to promote settling and infiltration.
All homes have a mix of some or all of the following:
Mediterranean,Plants Succulent/Cactus, Natives, Fruit trees, Vegetable & Herb Gardens.
Examples of raised beds, hydroponics.
