DIY: Laundry to Landscape – Greywater Irrigation Systems

greywater landscape watering system

Laundry to Landscape?  Hmmmm…..I am still trying to think through whether, in my own home, (which uses well water and a septic system) if capturing grey water is worth the effort as an environmental improvement.   I am however quite sure that for city dwellers and those using town water, particularly in arid environments, making good use of every drop of water is smart.

I read over at HomeGrown Evolution this morning about this easy to install Laundry to Landscape system built using greywater guru Art Ludwig’s free open-source plans.  I am so intrigued.   It certainly requires greater attention to detergent choices and a greater level of understanding about what is needed and not needed in your soil.

I think I have a bit to learn and I will be adding a new book to my ever expanding collection….This guy Art Ludwig has written extensively on the subject in his book called The New Create an Oasis with Greywater: Choosing, Building and Using Greywater Systems – Includes Branched Drains.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
