Rain Barrels

Recycle the Rain

Rainwater can be collected off the roof by rain gutters and directed into rain barrels. There the water can be stored and used for many non-potable uses such as watering your lawn or the foundation around your home.

The average 1,000-square-foot roof will collect over 650 gallons of water with just one inch of rainfall. So even 1/8” of rain could refill an empty rain barrel.

While having too much water around your foundation can cause problems, so can not having enough. By attaching a soaker hose to a rain barrel you can utilize the rainwater to maintain the moisture content in the soil around your home.
