Water Gardens and Drought Resolution

Water Gardens and Drought Resolution

     For many years gardeners and homeowners alike have had to deal with water restrictions around the United States. Some temporary some permanent law. If you are from a state or area with long term water problems you may have years of experience in some water solutions for gardens and being able to use more water on your property. One solution that is gaining popularity around the country are new rainwater collection systems. Often thought of a simple collection barrels under a down spot that only collect about a hundred gallons of water, the new more advanced systems have become a source for taking care of entire homes and irrigation of gardens.


Two recent national water scared include lake lanier in north Georgia that caused a scare in 2007-2008 that water supply to much of Atlanta Georgia could be suspended and in early 2009 Lake Travis lost almost 75% of its capacity in Central Texas. Both lakes have since recovered but there were months of sever water restrictions and as America’s population grows there will be more concerns away from the coastlines as where to obtain water and how it will be rationed. Entire companies are moving to install rainwater collection systems. Aqua-scape landscape/pondscape contractors across the United States have begun installing rain capture systems ranging from both above ground and below ground collection tanks ranging from hundreds to many multiple thousands of gallons of water. The larger systems can supply homes with water as well as the outside landscape. These installers also are installing large lined basins to capture water as in containment ponds and streams that can also act as landscape beautification projects.


I am not endorsing the Aquascape program over everyone else as they have independent contractors all over the United States and each may or may not install these kinds of systems. I have seen some of the Aquascape projects and the contractors I have talked to and reviewed online through there own stories have been doing some amazing work. Many businesses seem interested in the idea and here are a few benefits they mention as I am sure most require a decent investment.

The Aquascape RainXchange™ Harvesting Systems are a revolutionary design that combines a recirculating decorative water feature with a sub-surface rainwater harvesting collection system.

  • Clean, Filtered Water Collection & Storage – While you enjoy the benefits of a decorative water feature, the RainXchange™ Rainwater Harvesting System filters the stored water to prevent stagnation and growth of unhealthy bacteria.
  • The RainXchange™ Rainwater Harvesting System reveals only a beautiful water feature that integrates easily into existing landscape.
  • Collecting and storing the water underground maintains the integrity and beauty of your home and landscape.
  • Wildlife Habitat – Because the water stored in the RainXchange™ System is constantly moving and being aerated, it becomes a sanctuary for wildlife.
  • Water Feature Lifestyle – Enhanced landscaping improves property value and water features provide soothing sights and sounds that help you relax  in today’s busy world.
  • Environmental Conservation – Capturing rainwater to operate the water feature creates true self-sustainability, drastically reducing the need for chemically-treated traditional water sources.

  1. I like the idea of the rain exchange system to fill up a water feature. It would work well here in Oregon where there is a decent amount of rain almost every month. But I question it’s value in other states where the times it would be needed most (when it’s hot, and water features are evaporating like crazy) there isn’t really going to be any rainfall. So I wonder if it really does much good in those kinds of climates.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
