My Father has given me a very nice WOODEN barrel that I want to use as a rain barrel. The narrowest width is 17 inches and it is 16 inches high.
Do you think I need to line it? I have a very small plastic bucket inside right now, that I thought would be big enough....but one rain filled it, and the barrel.
My question is
Do you think need to line it with plastic? If so and suggestions? All the garbage cans I have seen are either way to small, or too wide. Do you think I need to treat the barrel with something?
Do you think I should prop the barrel up on some bricks.
