FEEDING YOUR GRASS WITH SHOWER AND LAUNDRY GREYWATER
To have a lush lawn and landscape, we redirect the overflow of water from your showers and laundry to keep your terrain green and healthy.
In this video, we will show you how we used our Greywater Shower and Laundry system in a recent landscape installation project. We also see where the Aquifer Pipes are located in relationship with the landscape.
TIP #1 – USE RIGHT ANGLES
We use a 90 degree template pipe to ensure the trenches are perpendicular and also at 90 degrees to each other. It is a major pain to end up in a angle, and can affect the outcome of the water.
TIP #2 – OBSERVE DISTANCE
Near a sidewalk, the Aquifer Pipe is laid 4 feet from the edge. This is useful because once you plant shrubs or ground cover, this will extend 2 feet from the sidewalk, and the ground cover will creep over the additional space of 2 feet.
TIP #3 – GO WIDER FOR THE GARDEN
With a larger area we widen out, spacing the pipe out at 8 feet. This saves time and energy when planting a shrub/drought tolerant garden. Subsequently, the moisture plume will spread out and cover all the plants. In this way, we will reach the plants and grass where they need it most – at the roots.
FINALLY – BACKFILL THE TRENCH
In our video, you will notice we first laid the Aquifer Pipe down in the trench, and then added water to the center channel. We did this to make sure it is level before backfilling the trench.
Use the same soil you dug out of the hole, when backfilling the trench. This will assure an even distribution of water from the Aquifer Pipe into the surrounding soil.
