My rain barrels are here

As I write, there is a very cute dude (why are environmentalists rugged and cute) installing my rain barrels.  Subsidized by the DC government and RiverSmart Homes.  Installed by DC Greenworks.

Is it going to fit?

Barrel installed and ready for use


  1. Now THATs what I need. Not just the barrels - the dude to go with them! Nice job.

  2. Can't wait to hear about how it works out!

  3. That looks like the same rain barrel I have - I got it from a organization called Riversides. I have mine set up with a soaker hose and my garden practically waters itself - Awesome barrel! Enjoy.

    Mine didn't come with the rugged installation dude *sigh*
