I want to develop a multiple-use system in my garden. Where can I information about how to do that? are there any designs developed by others that I could use?


Stef, can you clarify exactly what you mean by a multiple-use system for your context? Are you looking to treat the grey water from your house and re-use it for your garden? And are you also looking to treat your black water?

Here is a website of someone (I do not know them) who has done some self-build reed-bed systems that woudl be good for grey water treatment and for effleunt treatment from a septic tank. Let me know if this is what you are looking for or please clarify your question.
