I have access to a large number of used 50 gallon drums which I will be using to make rain barrels. These will be used for drip irrigation. This will be a good project to combine with my other project of replacing the shingles and rain gutters.
My primary goals are two:
- Save water and prevent needless runoff by recycling rainwater.
- Eliminate any chance of mosquitoes using these as a breeding ground. Currently we have almost NO mosquitoes in our backyard due to a lack of standing water anywhere.
