All our barrels are Food Quality High Density Poly Ethylene Barrels that were previously used to ship pickled food overseas. We clean and rinse them with rain water and PH neutral soap so you never have to worry about harsh contaminants getting on your plants. Before determining which color or size barrel to order there are several factors to be considered – see “Determining the Correct Barrel” in the common questions section.
Our Terra-Cotta barrels come from Greece and had olives in them. They are the perfect color to match your terra-cotta planters and hanging pots that all the nurseries and green houses are currently selling. The color blends in well with red brick homes.
There are holes drilled into the lid for the water to drain into from your downspout. The screening keeps out the debris from the roof and keeps the mosquitoes out.
Because all our barrels have a garden hose size spigot at the bottom of the barrels you have several options on how to water your plants since a garden hose, landscape tubing or drip tubing can be attached to the barrel. If you wanted to use a watering can simply situate the barrel on a wooden pedestal. The barrels also have an overflow fitting to allow the excess water that flows from the downspout to be diverted away from the barrel and a linking hose fitting so (2) or more barrels can be joined together and will all fill up from just (1) downspout
