In the Pacific Northwest, we have a good amount of rain. This is a great resource you can utilize for your home. Many people may choose to collect rain using something as simple as a rain barrel. You can affix rain barrels right to the downspout. Imagine all those winter months of rain, and you could possibly use that to water your garden come spring time, now that’s resourceful. This water harvesting may just be the ticket to you having a delectable harvest of fruits and vegetables.
Not only is it helping conserve water for the environment, but it may also help you spend less on your water bill in the hot summer months. I have also seen an animal or two take a swig of some fresh rain water, too. So there’s an added side benefit for parched pets. There’s many different types of ways to collect rain for your landscaping. From rain barrels to even larger receptacles, there’s a lot to choose from.
If you’re looking for inspiration around town, the Oregon Garden has a few different examples. You may also see some when you’re walking around town. Why not make use of all the wonderful rain that we have, and make your landscape look good?
