Rainwater Harvesting System, Aptos, CA

This quaint residence located on a bluff in the Aptos area had a lush existing native and drought tolerant landscape. The client was interested in reducing outdoor irrigation and decided to remove the water using lawn and replace it with a lower water using native variety. During this lawn removal three 2,500 gallon tanks were placed beneath the ground to capture, store, and reuse the rainwater draining from the roof surfaces.

Now the almost invisible rainwater harvesting system provides high quality water for the lush landscape while preventing erosion of the hillside bluff.
