It was overwhelmingly popular, as you can imagine, a lot of homes in California have very little yards, and thus many folks chose to turn their little backyards into barbecue areas with permeable pavers.
Knowing this and how much our water bill usually is, I am so tempted to buy some rain barrels. I wanted to be able to give the garden and flowers as much as water as they need and not deprive them of the potential to grow. The problem was I couldn't find any the last time I looked for rain barrels for sale.
My mother uses some of the old 5 gallons paint buckets as her rain water barrels. She always runs out of water much sooner than she wanted. This goes to show that she could use the real thing as it would hold much more when opportunity comes for rain harvesting.
It looks like I have another thing to convince my SO to buy in. We are in the spirit of shedding things rather than accumulating things, so this will not be an easy task, but I have to be ready to make a good case and worked out the organization process before hand.
Thanks for stopping by today.
