Rain Barrel

The modern day rain barrel is an old idea made new.  Its a simple way to harvest rain water and grow healthier plants and flowers.

These premium rain barrels fill from any size downspout into a Stainless Steel entry cover.  A solid Brass spigot connects easily to your garden hose or soaker hose.  A replaceable screen keeps insects out.  Two Brass overflow ports can connect to standard water hoses to divert excess water away from your home to nearby shrubbery areas.  Their design features ribbed sides for strength, and a removable top for easy spring cleaning.  The deep concave top channels water into the entry cover.   A screened entry prevents insects, leaves and debris from entering your rain barrel.  Your barrel refills with each rainfall.

At only 37 inches high and 28 inches wide, the 80 Gallon barrel offers one third more capacity.

Made in North Carolina from high density polyethylene, your rain barrel will provide years of nourishment for healthy, beautiful plants. 

Harvest rain for your flowers, shrubs, fruit trees and garden.  Free of municipal chemicals, natural rainfall promotes better growth.

Treegator

Professional Portable Drip Irrigator

The TREEGATOR® allows 20 gallons of water to be delivered to the roots of the tree without run-off or evaporation.  Rate of flow can be controlled from 8 to 32 hours.  Just zip the TREEGATOR® around the tree trunk and fill through the opening at the top.  The water trickles from holes that surround the bottom.  When empty, unzip and refold, leave it at the tree until the next watering, or zip it around another tree and refill. Two or three TREEGATORS® can be zipped together for trees 4" caliper or larger.
