Installing a Rain Barrel Step by Step

Installing a rain barrel is great fun and terribly satisfying. We can collect 55 gallons in this barrel with less than 1 " of rain off our roof. See right hand column for all the steps to installing your own barrel. With a drip hose channeled from the barrel we can water our ten rose bushes with a steady slow watering for over an hour. Try it. You'll love it!

So great that you have rain barrels. We have two wooden barrels that we started to install, then I needed knee surgery, and they're still sort of half finished. We've hit a couple of snags, but nothing that can't be fixed.

Your blog is lovely! I just adore that first photo above, showing your fall garden! Jan

Just so you know the current photo I just added is the same view now. The garden is resting.
