PVC Drip Irrigation is an inexpensive and easy to build method for watering your backyard garden. After adding a PVC drip irrigation system to your garden you can expect stronger vegetable plants, fewer weeds and a lower water bill!
Unless you live in a very wet climate, it’s always good to be able to collect rain water for your garden. Here's a great project you might be interested in doing...
Cadettes earning their LIA (Leader in Action) award might want to help Brownies who are doing the WOW! Wonders of Water program by teaming up to make this 2-trashcan rain barrel. It can be used to collect the water that runs off the roof of a house, school or community center. The water can then be used to water a Girl Scout Garden, fill a birdbath, or offer a drink to animals.
one neat thing about this design is that it is meant to be a stand-alone, no rain gutters required ~ I will try this with a bigger trash can, skip the brass (beautiful bulkhead fitting though) plus put the overflow hole higher up
