Aaron’s Rain Barrels. The manufacturer’s irrigation rain barrels are made from 20 pounds of recycled plastic or 110 pounds of oak, brass, and steel. The barrels have two spigots and connect directly to a home’s rain gutter downspouts. A removable zinc irrigation spigot can attach to a regular garden hose and has a shut-off value so the homeowner can leave it open for drip irrigation. The 58-gallon plastic rain barrel is fully enclosed for safety. The company’s wooden whiskey barrels (pictured) are reclaimed from Kentucky distilleries. 978.790.1816. www.ne-design.net.
