Julia wanted to screen the big cisterns, but now she is proud to show them off. Her super cistern can water the plantings by the driveway all summer long!
“Ever since I joined Sustainable Ballard about six years ago, I’ve been sustainable-izing my home and life on all fronts – replacing lawn with edible gardens, plugging energy leaks, re-upping my commitment to living car-free, planting more fruit trees. Getting RainWise was a natural next step!
I decided to really go for it. My RainWise installation captures rain water from my whole house, as well as from my carport and garage – over 2,000 square feet of roof area. I have a rain garden that’s fed by four cisterns. With a fifth cistern out back, I’m capturing over 1,400 gallons.”
