Helping the Earth and your garden
Save the planet, water and money
Over 40 percent of our water is used outside our homes. Ballooning populations, reduction of fresh water and drought from climate change is making water increasingly more valuable. If we saved even just 100 gallons a year per person (the average daily use per person) the US alone would save 30 billion gallons annually.
Rain barrels have been used for thousands of years to collect and save water. Today, millions of people use rain barrels to bring natural water to their lawn and plants while some even convert it into drinking water. Technology has helped to make these barrels more feature rich and efficient than ever before.

Good Ideas IMP-C90-OAK Impressions 90-Gallon Rain Saver Coral - Oak is designed with a self-draining planter top and built-in overflow. It features dual spigot locations, allowing you to use a hose and spigot simultaneously and an anti-debris/bug screen. Constructed with thick and durable polyethylene resin, which holds up to the harshest elements, the exterior has the appearance of coral. The graceful lines, curves and garnishes on the exterior make it an accent piece on your homes exterior and not something that just sticks to your house. The design optimizes space used and allows you to position the rain saver close to walls or flat areas. The top is the only of its kind that acts as a planter space and also self-drains when excess water is present. There is also a channel built into the rim which diverts overflowing water to the front and away from the barrel and home foundation. You can have peace of mind that you're helping the environment by conserving water and giving your garden the best water it can get, devoid of harsh chemicals and rich in nutrients. And you can perform that conservation without sacrificing your home's outer appearance.

In truth, we bought the rain barrel more because we don't have a viable gutter and drain for that particular area of the roof. The water ended up splashing and pooling on our sidewalk. We installed a short rain chain and ran it down to the rain barrel's small screen; we secured it with wire. My husband also built a stand for the barrel, assuring a good flow whether using one of the faucets or a garden hose. Both the rain chain and barrel are attractive (we bought the deep forest green) and they've solved our splashing and pooling problem very nicely.
By the time we got our rain barrel and chain installed, it was late in the summer and I didn't attempt to plant anything in the "self-draining planter" but I'm not sure it's going to work anyway. It's a nice idea and it would be lovely but I think plants could be quickly water-logged because it doesn't drain that fast. Instead, I plan to either put lake rocks in the top or perhaps some sturdy silk greens. I've also considered drilling 2-3 small holes in it because it might help the water drain a little faster. Then I might try plants but right now, the rocks seem like the best idea!
Although "constructed with thick and durable polyethylene resin which holds up to the harshest elements" we drained it at the end of the summer and moved it into the garage because the house is in Northern Minnesota. Perhaps in a more temperate climate, you could leave it outside all year but I wouldn't do that here in the Upper Midwest.
Added photos Sept 7, 2015 ~ we didn't drill extra holes; decided to use rocks and faux geraniums/ivy because we didn't want to wash out real plants. This has worked very well for us & I plan to do it again next year. The bright red geraniums look real from the driveway! This rain barrel has been one of the BEST solutions we've ever come up with for our house. I've added a couple photos; hope you can see them correctly!
Update June 7, 2016 ~ our third year and the rain barrel continues to be one of the best ideas we've ever implemented. We recently landscaped a bed that requires soaker hoses and I've attached a short leader hose to it so I can use the bottom spout. Will see how that works out!
prompted me to write this one.
This rain barrell looks nice, but thats about it. Its performance as an actual rain barrel is terrible.
The design is such that rain will constantly fill the "planter box" at the open top due to overflow/splillage where the downspout meets
the screen. You are left with a sess pool that attracts mosquitoes and frogs with no way to drain it. Forget about ever putting a plant in there as pictured. The overflow hole for the actual internal barrel is also poor, as excess water just dribbles down the front resulting in staining and discoloration. It would be better if you could attach some type of hose to this hole for excess drainange.
A great looking barrel that is virtually useless at effectively capturing rain.
A big waste of money. I wish Amazon would allow for returns greater than 30 days for items
that are defective and don't function properly. Especially when you have to wait for forces beyond the customer's control (i.e. weather) to evaluate the product.
Anyway, you know that little drain hole in the front... it ONLY drains the portion where you might sit a plant. When the main unit gets full, it just runs around very top and spills over the front. That little drain hole I mention is about an inch above the bottom of the planter box. Soooo, that's where your mosquitos will lay their eggs. I not recommending this, because it ruin any warren-tee, but I used a 3/4 inch hole saw and drilled the hole out from the front all the way to the inside and also cut a slit down to the bottom of the inside planter box so the water will ALL drain out.
Other then that...no leaks, I like it!
