One of our favorite new home blogs is This Young House and their recent rain barrel project shows step-by-step how to find the barrel, make the spout, and position it properly in your yard.
If you don’t have the time or inclination to monitor a rain barrel then you could also consider a drywell which will keep water away from your home’s foundation as well as prevent erosion.
There are also greywater systems that will cleanse your drain water as well as make use of rain water that has been collected. All in the name of conserving one of our most vital resources, water!
