"Save a rainy day"

And collect pure rainwater with our beautiful, one of a kind, rain harvesting systems.

Since 1998 we've been building wood-clad, steel-banded rain barrels and rain harvesting systems, with hand-built lids, stands and screens. We're dedicated to building very attractive, efficient, and easy to install systems that blend well with any garden.

Our wood is western red cedar, purchased through local family-owned saw mills that acquire damaged, reclaimed, or salvaged lumber. All the wood scraps and accumulated cut-ends are donated to our neighbors who need firewood kindling.

After milling the wood down to our specifications, we miter each stave 7 degrees on both edges and dado a channel for the banding. We then hand coat each stave with high quality semi-transparent stain and coat the lids with clear-satin spar urethane for added protection.

Full Flow Rain Saver System, stained with Cedar Natural Tone

We make the cores from recycled, food-safe, odorless, chemical inert, polyethylene.

Combine any one of our rainbarrels with a drip irrigation kit and the storm water manager to greatly increase the function and efficiency of your system.

The stormwater manager directs the water from your downspouts to a specific location such as a rain garden or bio-swale, and the drip irrigation kits focus on watering your plants root system so there is no wasted water.

By using a Rainbarrel Man rain barrel, you will help reduce water pollution! In a rain storm, oil, pesticides, animal waste, and fertilizers from our lawns, sidewalks, driveways, and streets are washed into sewers that often overflow into rivers, contaminating fish and other wildlife.

Your rainwater harvesting system helps prevent rain from becoming polluted storm water and puts it to a better use through drip irrigation.
