Roof Rain Water Catchment for pond.

The water comes off the roof into our new gutters and runs down the
pipes to the pond.

We will bury the black pipe by the house. It runs underground from the
garage to the swale and comes out the overflow pipe.
The overflow water flows back down the oversized green pipe to the
swale during big rains.


After this photo was taken I added and extension to send the water to
the bottom of the pond instead of out on top.

All the parts came from the local lumber yard.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
