Building water-saving features with urbanite

building with urbanite

Today was our first earth-building workshop.  Since I’m a little lean on earth-building handouts, here’s a substitute.  It’s not particularly about earth-building, but it is about earth-wise construction.  It’s about building with “urbanite,” which is a name for reused broken concrete.

If you have even the slightest slope to your garden, creating flat terraces, using urbanite to hold them up, is a really good idea.  I did it in my own front yard (more on that in another post).

I love this joyfully hand-drawn handout, which covers all the basics.  It comes from Joe Linton’s L.A. Creek Freak blog.
