Why use rain barrels
- They irrigate your lawn and garden
- During the summer months it is estimated that nearly 40% of household water is used for lawn and garden maintenance. A rain barrel collects water and stores it for those times that you need it most - during the dry summer months. Using rain barrels potentially helps home owners lower water bills, while also improving the vitality of plants, flowers, trees and lawns.
Rain is naturally soft and devoid of minerals, chlorine, fluoride and other harmful chemicals. The chemicals and hard water from many of our municipal water systems can add to chemical imbalances in soil and damage sensitive plants.
Water collected from roofs of houses picks up very little contamination, and is very healthy for plant life.
