I really love the idea of using the water collected from a rain barrel to hydrate my flower garden this season.  Not only would I save a little money on my water bill, but I wouldn’t have to drag a long, heavy, hose back and forth across my patio.  See,  I recently made several raised garden beds on the back side of my house,  and on the other side I have a really pretty flower garden, but the water source isn’t close, and I made a rain barrel system which has given me some much-needed heavy, water hose, hauling relief!    

 

 

 

Below are just a few of the rain barrel systems that are available on Amazon.  Amazon has fair prices that are very competitive, they also offer Prime 2 day shipping, an array of unique home & garden design ideas like the ones below.  🙂

This is the perfect rain barrel if you are really limited in space, because it has a flat back, which means you can butt it up right against your outside wall.  This particular rain barrel comes in 5 different colors, so if you’re a color coordination freak like I am, you have some pretty cool options.     $75-100 price range
