Earth Systems NW, founded by Nikola Davidson and Clay Fife, is a perfect solution for homeowners. Their purpose is to help homeowners harvest rain for use on their property (yard irrigation and inside water supply) and improve poor drainage or flooding issues. What really sets Earth Systems NW apart is the fact that they design cisterns to “hide” in your yard. This attention to detail is appreciated; usually a homeowner doesn’t want to look at a 2000 gallon water collection system. Clients have hidden their systems under decks, in hedges or underground.
How many gallons of rainwater are you not collecting each year? Earth Systems NW has a handy Average Rainwater Calculator on their website to help you determine which size cistern would best suit your needs. Be sure to check out their photo gallery illustrating the various styles and designs that homeowners have installed.
If you are in Seattle stop by the Northwest Flower & Garden show (February 3-7) to view Earth Systems NW’s life-size water fence.
