Do you ever suffer from lawn or garden envy? Do you want to have a beautiful lawn and garden? You can save money and water at the same time. A rain barrel may be your answer.
Collecting rain water to use in every day life goes back thousands of years. Collecting rain during the rainy season allowed crops to get what they needed during the dry season. More and more people in modern times are turning to collecting rain water to help supplement the need for water.
A rain barrel is a way to collect rain water to use later. Although water from the rain barrel can be used for drinking water, the water must have a special treatment with a filtration system. Most people find the water useful for watering landscapes and gardens. Rain is naturally soft water and can be beneficial to your garden, lawns, and trees. The benefit of not having the added expense on your water bill is just an added plus.
