Rainwater Harvesting

Learn the best methods of collecting, storing and using rainwater.

“Gardening with Less Water,” by David A. Bainbridge, illustrates step-by-step instructions to install buried clay pots and pipes, wicking systems, and other porous containers that deliver water directly to a plant’s roots with little to no evaporation. These systems are available at hardware stores and garden centers; are easy to set up and use; and work for garden beds, container gardens, and trees.
