Calculating Your Potential for Rainwater Harvest

Rainwater is a superior option over municipal sources for watering plants such as trees, garden crops, flowers, and turf grass. It is surprisingly cheap and easy to collect rainwater from your roof to supplement natural irrigation, which will save you money and reduce your use of the limited resource that is water. You can supplement your water needs between rain events, leave water for wildlife, and even wash your car with it. 

To appreciate the full potential for water savings, let’s dive into the basic math of rainwater harvesting.
