Rainwater Harvesting

Homestead Services has experience in both conventional drip irrigation and rainwater harvesting. The simple concept to be followed is that water is a precious resource, and should be used wisely. By incorporating integrated systems such as greywater or using rainwater to wash our clothes and then flush our toilets, we are using that water more than once. Conservation is not only "using less", but also reusing that same resource.

Converting your landscape beds from spray heads to drip irrigation not only can save water, but the plants will be getting the water where they need it the most ... at the roots. With the use of "smart" irrigation controllers and rain sensors, your water usage can be significantly improved.

Take a look at some of our recent projects:
Small home system
Larger pressurized system
Gravity fed system
