Take advantage of the rain falling outside and use it to your advantage.
I’m talking rain barrels. Even as it’s getting cooler.
How to Use a Rain Barrel
- Place a barrel or bucket on your roof or side of your house to collect the rainwater.
- Use the water to hydrate your plants, lawns and even washing off outdoor equipment (think shovels & rakes).
- You don’t need a huge rain barrel: smaller buckets will do for smaller homes.
Readers, do you have any creative rain barrel techniques to share?
