Using rain barrels has many benefits, including saving you money! Here are some of the benefits that investing in a rain barrel can have for your lawn or garden.
1. It helps save you money. Capturing and using rainwater instead of your water hose will reduce the cost of your water bill.
2. It helps conserve water. You’ll have your own water source in times of drought or watering restrictions.
3. It’s good for your lawn and plants. Rainwater is highly oxygenated, free of fluoride, and inorganic ions. It also makes your plants more drought tolerant.

CALL BEFORE YOU DIG
811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. Anyone who plans to dig should call 811 or go to their state 811 center’s website before digging to request that the approximate location of buried utilities be marked with paint or flags so that you don’t unintentionally dig into an underground utility line. You should call 811 or use your state 811 center’s website a few business days before you begin any digging, including common projects like planting trees and shrubs or installing fences and mailboxes. The specific amount of advance notice that you are required to provide varies by state.
