Using Greywater for Landscape Design (211-591)

Saturday, June 11, 9:30 am to 1 pm

A special Lecture by John Russell Owner of WaterSprout Landscape Design & Construction

In this presentation you will hear how greywater systems provide a dependable supply of water for your landscapes while conserving our natural water resources. Greywater systems re-use shower, laundry and sink water by distributing this water to plants in the landscape. A typical family of four can conserve approximately 38,000 gallons of water each year using a greywater system. You will learn about a wide variety of systems available to fit every budget:

- Low-tech laundry to landscape or branched drain systems directly apply greywater to the landscape without pumps or filters and are appropriate for the budget-conscious homeowner.

- Medium-tech Aqua2use greywater systems offer higher efficiency by pumping and filtering the greywater before applying it to the landscape.

- High-tech sand filters or constructed wetland systems integrate with irrigation controllers and valves to create fully automated greywater systems.

Lastly, John will speak briefly on how WaterSprout creates unique and beautiful garden spaces that satisfy the diverse needs of clients. The Bay Area hosts and amazing array of growing climates that support numerous plant communities.
