Residential Rainwater Harvesting System and Landscape Design, Los Gatos, CA

  • 10,000-gallon system with above ground tanks
  • One-acre of landscaped garden irrigated by the rainwater system
  • This site presented an erosion and storm water management challenge due to the steepness of the slope. The overflow from the rainwater tanks becomes a cascading water feature, helping to divert storm water into a retention pond below. Native plantings were established to stabilize the hillside and reduce soil erosion, replacing invasive and exotic plantings.
