Greywater Harvesting

Greywater Harvesting:

For people and gardens in the Western United States, greywater is the most available source of water for gardens, and is a key element in a Water Neutral Garden. Currently in the Santa Cruz area, most greywater goes to water treatment plants or septic tanks. Instead, approximately 2.3 million gallons of potential greywater could be used for landscaping. There are three commonly used greywater harvesting systems available:

Rainwater Harvesting

Rainwater Harvesting

Rainwater Harvesting is a key component of Water Neutral Gardens™. In the Monterey Bay region, we receive a range of 28–80 inches of rainfall from September to June each year. Rainwater is the best water for our plants because it is the purest, lacks salts and other minerals, and is without chemicals that our chlorinated municipal water systems supply.
