The Permaculture Earthworks Handbook: How to Design and Build Swales, Dams, Ponds, and Other Water Harvesting Systems

MAXIMIZE YOUR WATER HARVESTING POTENTIAL with efficient, cost-effective earthworks



Required reading for students of permaculture design, regenerative agriculture, and earth restoration.
- MADDY HARLAND, editor and co-founder, Permaculture Magazine

This needs to be a standard reference on the desk of every landscape designer, forester, agronomist, and master planner.
- ALBERT BATES, author, The Post-Petroleum Survival Guide and Cookbook , The Biochar Solution , and The Paris Agreement



IN THE FACE OF DROUGHT and desertification, well-designed water harvesting earthworks such as swales, ponds, and dams are the most effective way to channel water into productive use.

The Permaculture Earthworks Handbook is the first dedicated, detailed guide to the proper design and construction of water harvesting earthworks. It covers the function, design, and construction methods for nine main types of water harvesting earthworks across a full range of climates.

COVERAGE INCLUDES:

  • Swales, ponds, dams, hügelkultur, net-and-pan systems, spate irrigation, and more
  • Cost versus benefit of earthworks
  • Assessing site needs and suitability
  • Soil types and hydrology
  • Designing for maximum efficiency and lowest cost
  • Risk assessment and safe construction
  • Stacking functions and integrating earthworks into a design

This practical handbook is the essential resource for permaculture designers, teachers and students, landowners, farmers, homesteaders, landscape architects, and others involved in maximizing the water harvesting potential of any landscape at the lowest cost and impact.



After reading this book, you'll be ready to move some serious dirt.
- REBECCA MARTIN, Managing Editor, Mother Earth News

Creating earthworks to manage water resources is the crucial first step in permaculture land development and Douglas Barnes provides an essential guide doing it right the first time.
- DARRELL FREY, author, Bioshelter Market Garden and co-author, The Food Forest Handbook
