Greywater Systems

 Greywater systems are the lowhanging fruit in terms of safely bringing recycled water back into your local ecological system. Our specialists can install a system in a matter of 1 to 2 days and will design a system that is optimized for your specific water usage. The easiest system to install is a laundry to landscape (L2L) system, which runs from your clothes washer to designated plants in your landscape that you want to give more water to.

Rain Catchment Systems

Rainwater harvesting and catchment systems are for those ready to take a step beyond greywater systems. Tank systems allow storage of water for distribution as needed. This means you can catch rainwater in the winter and distribute it during the dry months of the year.

Collected rainwater can then be used for many purposes, from gardens and landscape irrigation, to other household purposes (following filtration).

Water Retention Landscape

Water retention landscapes are the most involved way to transform your local landscape into a resilient, abundant micro water ecosystem. Basins, diversion swales, check dams, and other earth technologies are used in combination to slow, spread, and sink any water that moves over and through the landscape, whether from direct rainfall or runoff flowing from higher elevations. While we do not formally offer retention landscaping, our specialists will help consult with you to create a custom plan to suite your landscape.

"The Water Folk did a great job on my project. It was a complex combination of rain garden, hugel kultur and installing a grey water system which meant that they had to design something in a compact space that leveraged the benefits of each system for the whole. Very thorough and showed up when promised. I definitely recommend working with him to restore water balance to your property and our good earth."

In many parts of California we are seeing rapid desertification, due in part to the rapid loss of water held in local ecosystems, and rain runoff that is unable to be absorbed into the landscape.


Our team at The Water Folk strives to play a role in reversing this process through implementation and education around best water management practices such as greywater, rain catchment systems, and water retention landscapes  

The Water Folk offers the needed support, education, and opportunities for the collective responsibility it will take to restore our relationship to water.
