A Swale is a method used to harvest rain water. They are long shallow trenches that run along the contour of the land, & are perfectly level. Swales do not direct water flow, but collect water. The soil removed from the swale is piled on the downhill side to make a slightly raised berm. When rain falls, water collects in the swale. Water will slowly seep into soil & collect in underground pockets that will supply the roots of plants through weeks & even months without rain.

Permaculture Swales In Permaculture, a swale is a method used to harvest rain water.  They are long shallow trenches that run along the contour of the land.  This means that swales are perfectly level.  Swales do not direct water flow, but they collect water.  The soil removed from the swale is piled on the downhill side to make a slightly raised bank or berm.  When rain falls, the water runs along the surface of the topsoil, and it will collect in the depression of a swale.
