Recycle the water from your seamless gutters by installing a rain barrel to a downspout! They are great for providing free water to your flower beds, vegetable gardens or lawn. One rain barrel can typically hold 35-55 gallons of water, and they come in a variety of colors and styles. Having a rain barrel not only provides free water but can also add to your home’s aesthetic appeal and value! The average prices are from $75.00-$200.00 depending on availability and style, but you can look up many DIY rain barrels on the web.
So how does a rain barrel work? They are simple gravity fed devices that do not require any electricity or pumps. All you need to do open the valve at the bottom of the rain barrel and water away! Some rain barrels come with a short water hose but you can certainly attach your own.
