Designing your keyline system

Keyline Design has been incorporated into our orchards and vineyards for water retention and maximum absorption. Ditches and mounds have been strategically placed following the contour of the land to hold water and nourish the trees and plants. During excessive rainfall, spillways have been installed and routed throughout the property to central collection ponds. These ponds and spillways are located sequentially in order of elevation to feed the next lowest pond before it could reach the streams for discharge. Our goal is to have no water discharged from the farm, we want to keep all for future use. See our blog post How to Design a Keyline Design for more information or visit our YouTube channel to watch the whole process.
