Have you ever watched a torrential downpour and wished you had a bucket big enough to catch the rain before it disappears down the drain? If so, this video is for you!
Watch as Ashley Henderson of the Alabama Clean Water Partnership walks us through three quick and easy steps to build a rain barrel.
Not only are rain barrels are a great way to save water for not-so-rainy-days, they’re a smart environmental choice. When you use rain barrels, you help prevent erosion and you help cut storm water run-off so rivers and other water sources stay clean. Rain barrels help you save this precious resource when you water your trees, flowers and scrubs. And with your own supply of rain water, you can have a great-looking yard, even when watering restrictions apply.
With all of these great benefits, you’ll want to build yours this weekend!
