Managing water and drainage

Predicting how water moves around and how it can be directed out of harms way or for storage is the basis for drainage design according to Garden Encyclopedia.  It is imperative that in all landscaped surfaces drainage be taken into account.

Surface drainage is normally by far the most effective and cheapest method of diverting water. It is imperative that water off hard surfaces be channelled onto surfaces on soil so the water can be absorbed. 

Collection of water is first prize and can either be stored in containers or dams. This can then be recycled onto the landscape and take pressure off the municipal system. Dams and wetlands can beautify the environment and provide beautiful eco systems in your garden.

As water becomes increasingly scarce; recycling both water in the garden and domestic waste sources becomes imperative. Domestic waste water should not be used on vegetables
