Great article. Unfortunately I'm not a very handy person so I had to buy a rain barrel. After doing quite a bit of research I got a rain barrel from EarthMinded and I am very happy with it. It holds about 60 gallons. It comes with what they call a “Flexifit Diverter”, which diverts water from the downspout to the rain barrel and allows excess water to pass through the downspout. You can lock the opening lid if you want to, which is also great cause it keeps out mosquitoes etc.

It also comes with a spigot which allows you to fill a watering can etc. and there is also a drain that you can attach your garden hose to. It’s also an easy way to empty the barrel in winter. They also provide a winter hole cover so I don’t have to worry about the hole looking ugly in winter :)

One of their products is 100% recycled while others are 30% recycled, which as an environmentally conscious person, is very important to me and puts my mind at ease.

You can buy them from their website ( ), but they also list authorized resellers that sell them. You can get better deals from some of these resellers ($40-50 off), so I would check them out.
