What is a rain barrel?
A rain barrel collects and stores rainwater from your rooftop which you later can use to water your lawn or garden, or to wash your car.
Rain barrels should be used in conjunction with other water management practices, such as rain gardens, green roofs, stormwater trees and porous pavement. But using a rain barrel is a great first step to better water quality.
Why should I use rain barrels?
