Rain Barrel Spout Down (2)
Atlanta, Georgia has over a 16 inch rain deficit this year. We now have water restriction that make watering on Saturday only.
I use a bucket to water my garden. It seems easier than using a hose.
I can fold up the spout when the barrel is full .
My neighbor has three trash cans that he uses for rain barrels. He has a flexable downspout tube that he just moves from one trash can to another as they are filled up.
He just uses a bucket to get the water out of the trash cans. Even quicker than a faucet.
When the trash can is full he just puts a lid on the trash can. His trash cans set on the pavement. so they are not so hard to dip the water out.
Much better looking than a rain barrel.
