Earth Day Count Down


We all know that when it rains, it pours; and with the right rain barrel, all that rainwater can be saved. Rain water harvesting is important because it decreases the high demand for domestic water in which residential irrigation can account for up to 40% of consumption. By collecting rain water and storing it a rain barrel you’ll have water for future use, whether it’s for watering the garden or just keeping it handy for emergency situations.

  1. Why not accomplish two ventures while doing one job? Need to keep your rain gutters clean to eliminate stagnant water with mosquito larva and bugs flowing into your rain barrels!
    We keep our rain gutters squeaky clean all year so rain water flows freer and cleaner into our many rain barrels. We do this with the Gutter Clutter Buster which is a newer method of cleaning gutters faster, easier, and with added bonus. As it attaches to a wet/dry vac and literally vacuums out all wet and dry gutter debris, while the user stays on the ground it also dumps all debris into the vac’s canister, which I later empty into my compost pile.
    So, it’s a WIN-WIN situation every time I clean out my rain gutters. Go green, use less potable water, get more compost materials, and eliminate mosquito breeding and virus mold.
    WOW! All in one venture that must be done for all homeowners like us that must keep those gutters clean, to stop major damages to our home!
    So Happy Rainwater Harvesting and Happy Composting but best of all Happy Garden Harvest!

  2. Rain barrel irrigation systems are great, but with today's time crunch and fast paced life, who has the time to setup and maintain a system like that? I'd personally recommend a highly efficient fully automated irrigation system. We found Orbit Irrigation and have loved them! Check out their website for more info:
