We recently made a rain barrel and wanted to share with you how we did it. It can be a very low-cost project, and it didn’t take us very long. Believe it or not, some areas do not allow rainwater harvesting so you may (or may not) want to inquire at your township hall about this.
One of the biggest reasons for using a rain barrel is to save money on water. If you live in an area where you have to pay for city water, or if there are watering restrictions, a rain barrel can help a great deal by giving you more water for free. Take a look at the video and try one of these out. Feel free to change the plan if you have different materials. If you figure out an easier way to make one, please share!
