I haven't built a water garden here, yet. But I had two nice ones in California. Check them out here: http://rollybrook.com/tarzana-yard.htm
I also had a gray water system to water a long hedge row. It was a simple 2" PVC pipe from the house to the hedge row, a distance of about 20 feet. The pipe terminated at the beginning of the row, and the water ran down a little trench along the back of the row. Worked really well when I kept the weeds out of the trench.
I had the kitchen sink connected to the system at first, but that did not work out well because of little food scraps attracting insects. I put the kitchen sink back on the regular waste system and used only the shower and bathroom wash basin for the gray water. There was no storage or settlement tank. It was very simple and, of course, very illegal.
