Rain Barrels January 22, 2010

Rain barrels are a great way to save water and money.  You can place one at each of your downspouts and not have to turn on the hose from your house all summer.  There are a plethora of choices out there now.  You can find rain barrels made from old wine barrels, old pickle barrels, recycled plastic and new resins.  There are also different styles and colors to choose from.  If you have city water you’ll save your lawn from chlorine and other chemicals.  If you’re on a well then you may save your plants from soft water and save yourself money for the electricity it takes to run your well pump.  Here are some online sources, but don’t forget with local nurseries and garden stores.
