DIY: Laundry to Landscape – Greywater Irrigation Systems

Laundry to Landscape?  Hmmmm…..I am still trying to think through whether, in my own home, (which uses well water and a septic system) if capturing grey water is worth the effort as an environmental improvement.   I am however quite sure that for city dwellers and those using town water, particularly in arid environments, making good use of every drop of water is smart.

I read over at HomeGrown Evolution this morning about this easy to install Laundry to Landscape system built using greywater guru Art Ludwig’s free open-source plans.  I am so intrigued.   It certainly requires greater attention to detergent choices and a greater level of understanding about what is needed and not needed in your soil.

I think I have a bit to learn and I will be adding a new book to my ever expanding collection….This guy Art Ludwig has written extensively on the subject in his book called The New Create an Oasis with Greywater: Choosing, Building and Using Greywater Systems – Includes Branched Drains.

Spread the love
