Wind & Snow Harvesting
Snow harvesting snow. A diversion berm of snow directs snow-melt flowing down the street into a raingarden of adjoining yard. Flagstaff, Arizona.
The raingarden full of water (melted snow).
Barbed wire fence on Diné lands in northern Arizona slows the wind enough for tumbleweed to drop out of the wind flow and accumulate.
In this case the fence is acting as a biomass/mulch harvester. In winter the same process enables the fence to act as a wind-borne snow harvester.
