Rain for Gardens, Not Gutters

Did you know that 1/4 inch of rainfall on a roof yields over 200 gallons of water..if only it were collected?

In hot conditions, it's estimated that 40% of a household's water use is wasted on the lawns and gardens. That can be reduced to almost nothing, if the rain is recycled.

This video offers some ideas for making your own rain collection barrels. It's a practical, simple way to reuse water especially for gardens and indoor plants.

You need a plastic drum, a few things from the the hardware store - and before you know it, you have a totally free brand new source of water.
