Tons of people harvest rainwater for several purposes, but they make a few mistakes in the process. The Youtube video "Top 7 Mistakes to Avoid when Harvesting Rainwater" has all you should know about proper rainwater management. Let's find out more!
Water is the most vital resource for a home and a garden, so it's great to harvest and maintain it so you can have excess water during the dry seasons. However, there are several mistakes people make.
