Using a rain barrel can save you a significant amount of money in a season. For each inch of rain that falls on 500 square feet of roof, you can collect 300 gallons of water to use in your garden, or your lawn.
collect rainwater for gardens. You can also layer chicken manure on a screen on top of the barrel to add organic material to the water as a "tea" for your vegetables.
