Creating a rain collection system on your property is a super simple, cost effective, and environmentally friendly project you can get done in a day (for years of use!).
Keep your outdoor garden, indoor plants, landscaping, and grass happy and healthy through the summer months with water you’ve collected in your rain barrels.
The most affordable, widely available option. Can find at most garden centers in a few different sizes.
Place your rain barrels at least a foot off the ground (you can use cinder blocks or any other durable, weather-safe platform.
In some spots, you can find recycled metal drums repurposed as a rain barrel. Easy to keep clean and sterile and durable.
The best (and easiest) spot for rain barrels to go is near a gutter or downspout on your home. The runoff can go directly into the barrel and most often than not, gives you a level spot to secure your barrel.
Because it is a natural material, wood barrels are a bit harder to find and will be more expensive than plastic or metal barrels.
