Conserve Water with a Rain Barrel... Emmaline Harvey

The easiest and most common method homeowners can use to collect rainwater is to install a basic rain barrel, which is a container stationed along the side of your house that collects run-off from your home’s gutter system. This very simple process merely directs the downspout running down the side of your house into a barrel (most commonly sized between 30-60 gallons) with a spigot at the bottom that can be attached to a hose or fill a watering can.
