If you want to collect rainwater runoff from your roof gutters, don’t assume that you are limited to a small number of styles – or colors for that matter.
Good Ideas has come out with a stylish decorative rain barrel in 9 different shades, so that you can easily choose one that closely matches the color of your home – or landscaping.
(By the way, this water storage unit is shaped to look like the trunk of a palm tree. Pretty cool, although I admit that it took me a while to figure out – even though the name clearly states it…)
But Don’t Be Fooled By Its Beauty
The “Palm” is molded from thick and durable polyethylene resin, so it will last a long time. The material is designed to not crack, fade or fall apart. No re-painting or weather-proofing needed (Hello Low Maintenance!). And maybe even better – it’s lightweight (21 lbs) so that you can easily set it up or move it you need to.
Anyway, in addition, you can add a large plant (or strawberries, vegetables or herb garden) in the top container. I think that decorative rain barrels with planters offer more value than regular tanks, plus they provide more options as to where you can put it.
Whether you want to hide your rain barrel or have one that stands out and adds style to your yard, the Good Ideas Palm Rain Saver can do it.
It’s tall and narrow and not too big (50-gallon capacity), so it works great in small spaces and it won’t overpower a patio or deck. If you want to collect more water than 50 gallons at a time, simply install a them at different downspout locations around your home. This way, water is conveniently accessible wherever you are on your property.
The Details… in 15 Seconds:
- 50 gallon capacity tank
