Rainbarrels/ Source for barrels in Georgia?
The statistics are looking grim: "Driest March in 75 years.." , "Half of usual annual rainfall by this time of year..." I would rather not wait until water restrictions are put into effect, so I drifted over onto this forum from my usual haunts: Georgia Gardening, Cottage Gardens, and the Composting/ Soil Forums. I've done some searches on Dogpile and Google for "barrels" and "Atlanta, GA," but have not had a lot of luck yet. I think I'm getting DH into a good frame of mind to work with me on making some rain barrels. Does anyone have good sources for northern Georgia? Also, I'm very interested in reading more about others' experiences with rain barrels. They can be very expensive, but I don't think they have to be? I'd love to see more communities doing what Austin, Texas Bremerton, Washington and Vancouver, B.C. (Canada) have been doing: subsidizing rain barrels for city residents.
