Rain Barrels and Composters are Becoming More Popular with Home Owners!

I've been noticing that more and more of my neighbors and friends are starting to compost or installing a Rain Barrel.  Maybe it's a trend - maybe some folks fancy themselves as a suburban farmer.  Rain Barrel

At my house, I have a garden! So it was a natural progression for me and my husband to start Composting and get a Rain Barrel.  We started composting 5 years ago, because we have that famous Georgia red clay soil - and it needed some help! 

Leaves, grass clippings, coffee grounds, potato and carrot peels, egg shells... you name it - we compost it!  And what a difference it has made in our garden soil.

Then 3 years ago, we added a Rain Barrel.  It's amazing how much water we collect during a 30 minute summer rainstorm!  Having a rain barrel is a great way to water your planters throughout the summer without spending a lot of money on water.

When Georgia was experiencing a drought and there were strict water restrictions - our Rain Barrel saved the day for our garden!

So next time you're looking for a unique and "Green" closing gift for your suburban clients, this might be the ticket!  For the DIY client, a Rain Barrel kit runs about $30 and Rain Barrels start at $100.

Patty, aren't you the urban farmer?  With food prices increasing I imagine more poeple might be willing to give this a try.
