3 Simple Decorative Rain Barrel Ideas

PowerPoint Presentation:

In general, there are 3 different styles of decorative rain barrels for collecting rainwater for gardens. I’m talking about the 100-gallon size or less that you connect to a rain gutter downspout.

PowerPoint Presentation:

A generic plastic barrel on which you paint a picture or design. A wood or other material enclosure that you build to surround your rain barrel. A decorative rain barrel that you buy, usually in the form of a ceramic pot, rock or wine barrel.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Your best option usually comes down to: the look you want achieve in your yard, the amount of time you want to spend building your rainwater system and your budget.

1. Painting a Picture

PowerPoint Presentation:

Of course, you may only want to go for this option if you like painting or have a friend who will do the job for you. That said, I’ve seen some pretty cool artwork that takes an ugly-looking plastic tank and turns it into the focal point of an otherwise bare outdoor space.

2. Building an Enclosure

PowerPoint Presentation:

If you are handy and like building things, you can pick up some inexpensive materials at your local home improvement store and build a good-looking enclosure for an ugly barrel. You don’t need to create anything fancy, and you can complete this task in an afternoon.

3. Buying a Decorative Rain Barrel

PowerPoint Presentation:

Of course, this is the simplest option and also takes the least amount of time. It also can be the easiest way to disguise a water collection system. Hmm..

PowerPoint Presentation:

Buying decorative rain barrel products usually costs more. However, when you take into account all of the supplies you need in addition to the barrel itself (and paint, enclosure supplies or other disguising materials), there is sometimes not that big of a difference.
