Make a personal Declaration of Independence from water restrictions this growing season. Rain barrels are eco-friendly water harvesting equipment that can substantially lower your water bills, save drinking water from being used outdoors,and give you peace of mind. It’s a great feeling when you know that your garden and landscape will not suffer from water restrictions and you will be helping the environment. By harvesting rainwater homeowners harness one of nature’s most precious, and recently scarce, commodities. After a small initial investment you can harvest water indefinitely –for free! Since drought conditions are becoming more common, and with the increased demand for water in the landscape, it only makes sense to seek sustainable solutions that offer independence from municipal water supplies.
