The Art of Catching Rain

Rain barrels capture water from a roof and hold it for later use such as on lawns, gardens or indoor plants. Collecting roof runoff in rain barrels reduces the amount of water that flows from your property and helps stop water pollutants from flowing into local waterways.   It's a great way to conserve water and it's free water for use in your landscape.  Cisterns are also used to "harvest" rain water. With a greater storage capacity they may be located above or below ground.
