Water comes in many forms: natural water, applied water, harvested water, problem water, and lack of water. Water is obviously important to your landscaping. It supplies plants with one of their basic needs, and it can also cause damage if you don't deal with drainage issues. By harvesting rainwater, you solve both problems at once. You're moving water safely away from trouble spots like your living room and into parts of your property where it can grow plants and reduce your dependence on city water.
