Adding Rain Barrels to your Landscape

Rain barrels have evolved into one of my favorite projects…how to add one, how to make it “fit” into the landscape without being obtrusive and the best size for the location.  I love to the look of the recycled wine barrel shown!  It makes me happy when I receive an email from one of my friends or colleagues who wants to add a rain barrel to his/her yard to capture roof runoff.  The DailyGreen offers a wonderful annual rainfall chart including pictures and a diagram showing a major rain collection system. This article is a great starting point if you are considering adding a rain barrel to your landscape. Find your average rainfall amount and get great ideas for your yard…
