Greenfield Garden Club members opened their gardens to the public in a fund-raising tour on July 9. Water seemed to be everywhere in those gardens, fountains, pools and streams. One of the most important water features was in Marcia Stone and Norm Hirschfeld’s garden – a rain barrel. They plan to add more. The rain off their garage roof fills the 55 gallon drum almost instantly.

I have often thought of doing this. During the heat of summer it is a wished for item.
Everyone in England seems to have a rain barrel. It seems an obvious choice doesn’t it?
Lisa and Layanee – A lot of water comes off a roof. It seems a shame not to use it. And this water barrel was so photogenic.
