Save Water with a Rain Barrel

The average Hilliard household uses approximately 5,000 gallons of water a month and 40% percent of that is used for watering the lawn, plants and other outdoor tasks during summer months. Rain barrels attach to gutters and collect rainwater runoff that can be recycled to water your lawn and garden. You can get a 45-gallon rain barrel for $50 through the GreenSpot Rain Barrel program.
