Rain barrels can save a rainy day

April's This Old House's magazine has some great environmental articles. Check out "Harvesting The Water With Rain Barrels" so that you don't have to "Install an In-ground Irrigation System". One inch of rainfall on a 1,000 sq. ft will provide 632 gallons. If you have a 2,000 sq. ft. roof, you can collect 55,000 gallons over a year. Check out Composting on the Central Florida Yards & Neighborhoods website for more information on recycling.
