Rain barrels are a great way to save water and money -- and making a DIY rain barrel helps you save even more! -- 1 large plastic garbage can (the larger it is, the more water you can collect) -- 1 tube of watertight sealant or roll of Teflon tape for plumbing -- 2 rubber washers -- 2 metal washers -- 1 hose clamp -- 1 spigot -- A drill -- Landscaping fabric
Why Make a Rain Barrel - We have what we have named a "Snack yard", with 8 diff.types of fruits and the veges we grow every year. We want our grandchildren to able to go out and pick fruit/veges to eat right off the plant, so catching rain water is important ecologically, economically. Besides that it's fun!
Make a DIY Rain Barrel to Save Water Save money -- and moisture -- this season by collecting rainwater.
