a) Use a rain barrel to catch rain water. Check this site for instructions on how to set up a typical rain barrel system; or, check out this newer type (more compact and less visible)

b) Harvest greywater from your kitchen sink, bathtub, washing machine. Here is a website that has lot's of great information: Greywater Guerrillas
