Love my rain barrels may get more! Really great idea for saving water! Rain water is better to water flower beds with, so this is an awesome idea. I saw this on a show not too long ago. You can hook up your hose and water your garden too.
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. If we ever got rain.
