Both aesthetic & functional
Oak Rain Barrels
The overflow is directed towards neighboring gardens or away from the foundation on custom splash blocks
that blend into their surroundings
Our barrels are outfitted with an easy to install/remove drain plug that allows the barrel to stay in place all year
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.
| This sub-surface irrigates your garden|
which greatly reduces the occurrence of weeds, as well as encourages deeper root growth,
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.
