Rainwater: Free, Fresh, Filling

From the mountains to the desert valleys, rainwater can be collected and directed to your landscape plants.

  • Collect water from your roof by installing gutters and downspouts, and keep them free of debris.
  • Evaluate your landscape to see what needs to be done to direct rainwater to planting areas.
  • Start the flow of water at the high point of your yard's watershed so that gravity will move the water to your plants.
  • Encourage rainwater to spread and soak into your landscape instead of allowing it to quickly run off.
  • Find out if you can get a rebate for installing a rainwater harvesting system. Look for rebate information on the WAM calendar.
