The Best Rain Barrel is one that works well and holds a good amount of collected water. It should also look nice in your yard, and catch all those natural drops of water!
After searching out all the costs involved with purchasing this rain barrel, I am convinced that this style is the one for you. I like that it has a flat back that will nestle the barrel right up against the wall. It has a large 50 gallon capacity hold and a brass spigot that will double as a hose attachment. Filling your watering cans from the hose attachment will be much easier than trying to fill it from the top. Although you can do that as well. Or you can buy an optional stand for your rain barrel to sit on.
You don’t have to worry about overflow either. This barrel comes with an overflow that faces opposite to the wall that it is resting against. Overflow will run into your yard and not running down close to the foundation of your home. If you want more than one barrel, you can “link” them together for more water savings. There is a screen covering the top helping to keep insects out and the rain barrel safe around children and pets.
The other thing I really like is that it comes in a variety of colours. From an authentic barrel look in Black, to Brown, Tan or Green, the colour choice is yours. You can match or contrast with your homes outer décor or if it doesn’t matter, pick the colour you like the best.
I am almost sure that you will enjoy having this rain barrel as part of your garden tools. Not only will it ensure that you have fresh water for all your plants and planters, but it will help to cut down on the costs of watering from the hose. It will also give your plants water without all the chemicals, so your plants will be much happier. If you have a small pond or bird bath, filling that with rain water will also make the birds happy too!
Doing your part in keeping Mother Earth happy has never been so easy. Get one or two Rain Barrels and you will be on your way to making a much smaller footprint on the world. That is a win-win situation for everyone.
Rain Barrels should not be overlooked as a great addition to your garden where ever you live.
