· One-inch of rainfall on a 1,000 square-foot roof generates 623 gallons of runoff.

· In the summer, 40% of a typical household's water use goes to watering gardens and lawns.

· One barrel with a 125ft. of soaker hose attached will irrigate a flower/vegetable garden for over 6 hrs!

· Rain water is usually soft and free of dissolved minerals. This untreated water is great for indoor plans, your garden and lawn or washing your car.

· Neighbors will be jealous of your new garden toy.

· Once the water is collected IT’S FREE!

· According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, a rain barrel can potentially save most home owners about 1,300 gallons of water during the peak summer months.

Its never to early to start your garden planning. I have began to draw out a new plot for planting vegetables. I will use my rain barrel to irrigate it during the hot summer months. The plan will be to use a soaker hose baried in the dirt about 2 inches down. That way the roots will feed off of the natural rain water and the water will not evaporate and I will have less chance of having mildew grow on the leaves.
