Julie Geake shared the following as part of our Yard Water Conservation Challenge.
We made rain barrels out of resources we had at home. After the city introduced the new garbage bins ours have been sitting empty. We bought a spout and a stand with scrap wood and cans up with this system to catch our rain water. The lid has holes with a screen to keep just the water to enter and it over flows to our other pail and then out a hose to our yard when they’re both full. It’s amazing how quickly rain water adds up when you collect it.
