We install greywater systems to meet irrigation needs. This one functions with a pump and is connected to a drip irrigation system for an apartment courtyard garden.
Allows laundry water to easily be sent to sewer if necessary.
We also design systems that tie into household plumbing to irrigate your landscape using interior fixtures like bathroom showers and sinks.
In this Berkeley garden we sculpted landforms to infiltrate stormwater into the ground rather than encouraging it to runoff into stormdrains. This recharges groundwater, prevents flooding and decreases pollution.
This permeable hardscape provides aesthetic interest and performs the critical function of "slowing, spreading and sinking" rainwater.
The culvert soon will provide no drainage function, leaving this landscape prone to flooding.
Minimizing impermeable surfaces is one way to decrease stormwater runoff and erosion.
Reusing existing concrete strips saved hauling and materials costs as well as allowing rainwater to penetrate the ground.
This plan proposes capturing stormwater from a drainage culvert to prevent flooding and irrigate garden.
