This tip comes from David C. of Kansas City, Missouri. He was the winner of our photo contest during Service Line Awareness Week.
“I conserve water with 4 of these 55-gallon rain barrels around my home. This provides 220 gallons of water from just one-half inch of rain as they fill very quickly. The flowers and vegetables grow faster with water from my barrels versus using tap water. I rarely use all 220 gallons before a new rainfall fills them back up for me.”
