thinking about building a rain barrel in the barn so there isn't a hose running from the house all the way out there all year
How to Build a Rain Barrel. This DIY rain barrel costs less than 100 bucks to build and works just as well as the expensive ones you can purchase.
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!

Oak rain barrel -- I completely forgot that wine barrels are liquid tight! Duh. Why is this better than a plastic rain barrel? 1. It WAY cooler looking. 2. It will biodegrade & won't last 1,000 years. 3. It won't leach potentially harmful chemicals into my vegetables & soil. ♥
Believe it or not I have found these wheelbarrows thrown out on the side of the road on more than one occasion. No better way to display colorful annuals
