I have three rain barrels and love them because they catch usable water that would otherwise run off the roof, down the driveway, or along the side of the house and into the street. My potted plants and plants under the eaves enjoy the softer water. While I do enjoy hand watering, I like our homemade rain barrel the best. It features a faucet to which I can attached a hose and water plants that are up to 20 feet away from the barrel.
