Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond - Volume 2: Water-Harvesting Earthworks
By Brad Lancaster, 336 pages
Brad Lancaster went from rule-bending renegade to water-saving hero in drought-stricken-yet-flood-prone Tucson, Arizona. In two volumes of Rainwater Harvesting for Drylands and Beyond, Lancaster shares his wisdom and experiences, teaching you how to conceptualize, design, and implement sustainable water harvesting systems for your home, landscape, and community.
Volume Two, Water-Harvesting Earthworks, focuses on earthworks as the easiest, least expensive, and most effective way of passively harvesting and conserving multiple sources of water in the soil. Associated vegetation then pumps the harvested water back out in the form of beauty, food, shelter, wildlife habitat, and passive heating and cooling strategies, while controlling erosion, increasing soil fertility, reducing downstream flooding, and improving water and air quality.
Building on the information presented in Volume 1, this book shows you how to select, place, size, construct, and plant your chosen water-harvesting earthworks. It presents detailed how-to information and variations of a diverse array of earthworks, including chapters on mulch, vegetation, and greywater recycling so you can customize the techniques to the unique requirements of your site. Includes real-life stories and examples and more than 200 illustrations and photographs.
