So, here are some others we're looking at:
This is pretty. Maybe a couple of these would be okay visible in the front yard, with some larger, uglier ones under the stairs... Like this:
This is a beast. It may not fit under the stairs...
But these are kind of cool:
They're big bags-o-rain! Rain bags. They hold just over 100 gallons and lay flat, perfect for under a porch. Not sure how multiples work, though...
Then we could just line a bunch of these up along the side of the house in back.
They aren't 7 1/2" deep. :(
But they are 14". Which is still good.
Anyone out there have any rain barrel experience? Suggestions? Comments on the wonderfulness of rain?
