Water Harvest

Backyard Bio Pond

Backyard Bio Pond

It rains a lot in North Vancouver. We try to find opportunities to celebrate it so that it becomes a special, enjoyable aspect of our lives rather than a hardship to be endured. We harvest rainwater from our roof and direct it into the bio pond in our back yard via a scupper connected to the roof gutters. We decided on a metal roof to ensure no contamination of the water with petroleum by-products found in tar shingles.
