Rain Barrels | Irrigation for Yard & Garden | Water Conservation | Arkansas ExtensionA rain barrel on your property can be a fun and rewarding opportunity!

Rain barrels are storage containers placed in areas where runoff flows from impervious surfaces during a rainfall event, such as a roof gutter outflow point.

The stored water in the rain barrel can then serve specific purposes. For example, you can use rain barrel water to irrigate your home garden and flower beds or wash your car..

Rain barrels can be purchased relatively inexpensively (less than $100) from home improvement stores, or you can even construct your own.
