Go Green and Conserve Water with Rain Barrels and Rain Gardens

Play

10:00

We’ve all heard of April showers, and most of us think about them with a large amount of dislike. Rain barrels and water gardens, however, are one way to enjoy them. They work with your landscape and native plants to reduce runoff and pollution. A rain barrel even harvests rainwater for use during dry months, saving money and protecting a natural resource. On this hour of “All Sides,” we’ll tell you more about rain gardens and rain barrels in relation to Earth Day.
