This is a rain garden. We wanted to utilize the rainwater off of this expansive roof. So we installed a large rain barrel. When it gets full it overflows into this rain garden Landforms Inc.

Mariana Pickering (Emu Architects) added this to How to Harvest Rainwater for Your Garden
Is this a DIY project? Absolutely. Many home improvement stores carry a range of rain tanks and, as long as you already have gutters and downspouts installed, adding the attachment is not too difficult. You just need a downspout diverter and a screen or filter to keep out debris. When you purchase the tank, instructions are usually included. If certain peculiarities of your roof or garden prevent you from getting your hands dirty yourself, consider hiring a landscaper with experience in rainwater harvesting systems. Some things to watch out for: Possible contaminants in your runoff water. Make sure to think about where the rainwater was before it arrived in your tank, and where that water is going to be used. You wouldn’t want to spray your tomatoes with lead-contaminated water, for example.Cost and MaterialsIn general. Assuming you’ll be purchasing an aboveground barrel or tank and installing it yourself, the cost can be quite low. It basically comes down to the material of the barrel you select, plus the diverter and filter accessories. Often you will find all the necessary attachments sold in the same place as the barrels, in a kit for an extra $50 or so. Some places will also offer to install everything for you for a low fee.
