Rain Barrel Update

20120930-131526.jpg

And to make the rain barrels even better, Hubby set up the third barrel while I wad out of town for work! Now we have three barrels, and they are built around the corner of the garage.

This way, they take up less space, and when we build the greenhouse they will be easily accessible for watering all of my future plants! Hubby even put in an overflow hole on the third barrel which will flow into the original concrete downspout collection thing, to prevent erosion of the soil below the rain barrel. Best. Husband. Ever.

  1. Love this…& the greenhouses too! Always wanted to do this someday when we own our own home. Long Island is too expensive to buy especially including the soaring taxes..but definitively something to look forward to

    1. It was such a blast, and I can’t wait to build our greenhouse! That will probably be happening this summer. I hope you get to do it soon! It’s very satisfying to be able to water my plants and the lawn with rain water.
