Active Rainwater Collection
Active rainwater collection systems utilize a pump to provide automated sub-surface irrigation, creating self-watering gardens

The wooden structure in the back is made from
re-purposed deck wood that conceals the collection system.

A timer, relay, pump, valves, and downspout connections, all sit within the structure that encloses a 275 gallon tank.

Water is pumped from the tank underground to
the small stone fountain. The fountain, instead of
recirculating water, drains beneath the raised bed.

rain catchment system in lambertville nj This sub-surface irrigates your garden
which greatly reduces the occurrence of weeds, as well as encourages deeper root growth,
all while using less water. Self-watering gardens
lessen the demand on a low-performing well,
or allow you to grow fresh vegetables
at your weekend home.

 On a full tank this system can water    
the garden for a month without any rain.
