make your own rain barrels
Perhaps this is a silly question... But I dont mind! :)
After looking at the cost of rain barrels, I was wondering if there is a less expensive way for the do-it-yourselfer?
What all would be needed? could you teach me, or do you know of some good links?
I dont mind if the barrel is ugly. I could make it pretty on the outside by growing some plants around it. Tall native grasses would be neat but wont work in my area (completely surrounded by trees in a small yound forest).So I guess this idea is out... Unless any of you know about plants that would be tall enough that grow in the shade.
Or, I could get some old barn wood when someone rips down a decaying barn and build that around it perhaps...
