Water is a precious resource and there are many ways to conserve it in your home. Outdoors, your landscape requires plenty of water to thrive, but water conservation has a place here, too. Rainwater can be collected in a rain-barrel and used for watering your lawn, trees and plants. Doing this has many benefits, such as:
- Rainwater is free of the chemicals commonly added to tap water. This makes rainwater better for your lawn and garden because plants prefer water in its pure form.
- Using rainwater for watering your landscape will reduce your household’s water bill. It may also prevent sharp cost increases in the near future by placing less demand on municipal water systems.
- Collected rainwater in a rain-barrel can help your plants make it through a drought. Drought is not a rare event in the summer, so having an extra store of rainwater allows you to water even during times of water-restriction.
Today’s rain-barrels are designed to make collecting and using rainwater easy, because using rainwater from your barrels to water your lawn is one of the best things you can do for water conservation.
