Make Yourself A Classy Water Catchment System
|By Michael d'Estries in Climate Change, Water | April 9, 2008|
This summer, I plan on adding a water catchment system to my home. Unlike other part of the nation, Ithaca, NY isn’t necessarily thirsty for H20. Nevertheless, I feel like it will reduce my dependence on municipal services and give me a nice source of rainwater for my garden.
There are many different ways to do this. One of the nicest examples — that comes with its own DIY instructions — is the catchment system courtesy of designer Michelle Kaufman’s blog. They list all the materials you’ll need — as well as some nice Martha Stewart touches you can make to beautify your conservation efforts.
