Don’t go grabbing a piece of firewood just yet. That is not stacked wood – it’s a wood box rain barrel!
Now you can hide your extra rainwater in a cleverly-concealed rain barrel that looks like an outdoor wood storage container amongst the landscaping.
OK, it may look a little bit fake. However, you can’t deny that it does look cool.
Also, because of it’s square shape, it can be positioned right up against a wall. This means that it takes up very little space in your yard while still collecting about 50 gallons of water runoff.
Note: If the wood box above is out of stock, check out the Rainwater Catcher Barrels, cleverly shaped like a wine barrels. Each container measures 32″ tall and hold 45 gallons of water.
Their neutral dark brown color makes them look inconspicuous and hides dirt well. Place them next to 2 different downspouts, or link them together (linking kit is included in package).
An Extra Spigot for a Hose or Drip Line…
You might not be able to tell by the photo, but the unit includes 2 brass spigots. This comes in handy if you’re one of those people who likes to have a hose or drip line connected while still having the ability to fill up a watering can when you want. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? =)
Strong – but Conveniently Lightweight.
It weighs in at 32 pounds, so it’s a little heavier than other resin water tanks, but it’s still easy to move while being durable, low maintenance and long lasting.
