Phil Williams of takes you through a two-part video of him installing a grey water and silt pond project he has. He explains some of the issues and he talks through resolutions to making it work.
Phil was a conventional landscape contractor and designer for twelve years. He learned quite a bit about how to run equipment and how to manage a job, but the lack of sustainability of the industry was too much and he walked away.
Phil was then a building analyst and energy auditor for awhile, before finding permaculture through organic gardening. He has since been studying permaculture for five years, practicing it on his farm, and he has completed two permaculture design courses.
Currently Phil is working with landscape contractors nationwide to help introduce them to permaculture design principles as well as taking local design and installation projects within an hour of Lebanon, Pennsylvania. His website is foodproduction101.com and on the WPN here.
