A rain barrel is certainly handy to have in your garden. These days, rain water barrels are not just useful - they can be decorative, too. I am especially fond of this rain water barrel disguised as a flower pot. It holds an impressive 75 gallons and comes with a lockable childproof lid. Rain harvesting can be a good lesson in conservation for my kids, who are already proficient in recycling and turning off the lights when we leave a room. I can just see them filling in their cute little watering cans from the spout of a pretty rain barrel.
Rain barrels for sale are available online. I found a company called Simply Rain Barrels that has tons of different barrels, including my favorite decorative ones. In addition, they have rain tank systems, garden accessories, and rain barrel and tank accessories. You can find a rain barrel for sale that works for you. So next time it's raining, you'll be happily collecting rain water for your garden rather than singing rain, rain, go away.
