Reuse rainwater with these barrels made from trash cans. Placed underneath your home's downspout, a rain barrel can help conserve water (and money) by capturing rain runoff from the roof. You can then use that water for the garden. You'll find a variety of barrels available online: Look for ones that have a spigot for a house attachment. Or make your own from large plastic trash containers. You can purchase a pump to help deliver the water through your hose, or a tap to fill your watering can.

This is a little bit misleading because there is no way you're gonna get that kind of spray pressure out of a rain barrel without it being extremely full and the hose dropping elevation a LOT. If you has a flat yard the lack of pressure is, unfortuately, disappointing. :( Still love my 3 rain barrels but...we are doing this come spring time!
