Save the planet and your wallet by using rainwater harvesting systems in your backyard. Zone Crew Landscapers have the knowledge and experience to deliver your rainwater harvesting project on-time and on-budget.
Increasing desire for more efficient use of water has led to the development of some fantastic rainwater harvesting tanks. Zone Crew can design the right technical rainwater system according to the council requirements and integrate it into your landscape to minimize any visual impact.
Ideal for watering your garden, a smaller tank of around 240 liters may be enough to fill your personal needs, especially if you live in an area where it rains often. Zone Crew can help you pick the best rain barrel for your rainwater collection needs and install it in the ideal space for you.
For homeowners who live in drier areas or who plan on using their rainwater more often, a larger tank with a capacity of over 500 liters may be required. A tank of this size can also be used to supply water for indoor needs.
Plastic or polyethylene water tanks are a great option for homeowners who are on a budget. Although these don’t last as long as other options, they are lightweight, available in a wide range of sizes and suitable for most homes.
Homeowners living in an apartment or in the city can choose to install a slim-line tank along the outside of their property. Note that the water collected in these tanks can get heavy, so it is recommended you use a professional like Zone Crew to safely secure them.
These often need a food-grade coating to be suitable for storing water. They can be extremely stiff but relatively light, making them prone to cracking. However, they allow for more light to enter the tank, which reduces algae growth. As these vary in quality, it is best to heed the advice of a professional when it comes to picking them.
It is extremely important to regularly maintain your rainwater tank, which includes desludging the tank, clearing your roof and guttering for debris, keeping your roof clean, as well as keeping the pipes and other structural parts clean and clear.
For the sole purpose of watering your garden, Zone Crew can install garden water tanks in or close to your garden in a way that does not interfere with the aesthetics of your garden. Our landscaping specialists can also connect the tank to your watering systems to help you automate the watering process.
