Conserve water and save money by adding a few rain barrels to your landscape. Gardeners have used these and cisterns for over 2000 years to capture rainfall for later use in times of drought. You can collect more than 600 gallons of water for every inch of rain that falls on 1000 square feet of roof. Use the water from your rain barrel for your containers or run a soaker hose to a nearby garden for easy watering. You will have fun watching your water bill decline as our garden grows.
