Why Using Rainwater for Your Garden is Beneficial (And How to Leverage Garden Water Tanks into Your Gardening and Landscaping)


Are you tired of having to pay hefty water bills to keep your garden plants healthy and your lawn green and gorgeous? Are you looking for a cheaper and better way to water your plants and your lawn?


If you answered ‘yes’ to either of these questions, then now is the ideal time to consider the installation of a garden water tank on your property. Garden rainwater tanks can give you the freedom to harvest rainwater and use it to water your plants and keep your landscaping up to a high standard.


How Rainwater Harvesting Can Benefit Your Plants


The idea of collecting rainwater in reservoir tanks and using it for numerous tasks around the house has grown more popular and commonplace in the past few years. Of course, there are certain things for which you won’t want to use rainwater. While rainwater is relatively clean, it isn’t potable, which means you won’t be using it as drinking water or for cooking and food preparation. However, since there are plenty of uses for non-potable water—from washing your car to filling your swimming pool—many Australian families have benefitted greatly from installing rainwater collection tanks on their property.


Gardening and watering plants are tasks that don’t require the use of potable water. As such, if you do a lot of gardening or landscaping, then having a garden rainwater tank on your property can be extremely beneficial. Not only will using rainwater for landscaping offer you some relief on the water bill front, but it will also be better for your plants. City water is often chlorinated to kill bacteria and make the water safe for drinking. The chemicals used to treat the water and render it potable, though, is bad for your plants and your lawn. Rainwater is free of chlorine and other chemicals, thereby providing more natural nourishment for your plants.
