Rain Barrels – The Ultimate Water Savers!

Did you know? With every 1 inch of rain on 1,000 square feet of roof, you can collect around 600 gallons! That’s a lot of water. And it’s a really good way to provide clean, fresh water for your landscape. And here’s a little secret.

Plants LOVE rainwater. It’s soft and gently acidic, and helps plants grow stronger and faster. After all, doesn’t Mother Nature water her plants with rainwater?
