Here is what garden-guru Joe Lamp'l has to say about the Rain Barrel that Fiskars is giving away in my Gardeners' Sustainable Living Project/GiveAway: It's "Not your grandmother's rain barrel"! (Follow the previous link to see Joe in a video describing the Fiskar's Rain Barrel).
|The Fiskars rain barrel retails for $98 at Home Depot|
Fiskar's sent me a 58 gallon rain barrel to try for myself. I just love it!
There is very little work involved in getting it attached to your gutter. My helpful hubby simply cut the gutter and installed the attachments. There is a diverter to prevent the water from over flowing once the barrel is full. Easy as pie to hook up.
Features include (from the Fiskars website):
It's easy on the eyes and would fit right in with any garden decor. We've located it close to the veggie containers (my potager) so I can just fill a watering can right there. The veggies are going to love the natural rain water.
I'm thrilled to be a new owner AND to be giving one away to a lucky blogger. All you need to do is link a blog post that discusses your earth-friendly practices. Please visit my Gardeners' Sustainable Living Project/Giveaway by April 15th for the complete directions. It's definitely worth your time and effort. Thanks to Fiskar's for being so generous by sending one to me and sharing one with one of my readers:-)
