RMRS is now taking orders for our 3rd batch of Rain Barrels!

Due to last summer's draught, and rumours this summer's may be even worse, Rain Barrels have recently become an extremely popular item.

We've sold out the first two batches we ordered,and at the Home Show we had so many residents ask about them, we've ordered another 90...we'll see how long they last!

The Rain Barrels help lower municipal water demands and save energy at water treatment facilities by reducing water pollution and storm water runoff. Rain water, free from chlorine and water treatment chemicals, is an excellent water source for lawns, plants and gardens.
