Spring Rains Filling Swales Nicely

Posted by Fred Tanner over 6 years ago

The last two weekends we have received around 4 inches of rain and the swales we have created are working nicely.

Glad we installed our permaculture swales on the property a couple of years ago. The recent 4 inch rains have shown how well the swales work and some required additional digging due to the heavy run off. Also great to see how happy many of the plants we planted on the berms are.
