Rain Barrels

Plant Sale

The Arboretum recycles heavy plastic barrels, previously used for food storage, to be used to collect and store rainwater for irrigation. The barrels come already retrofitted with hose attachments and screen lids to prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs and breeding. They are a fun way to conserve and store water, adding interest and beauty to the garden - especially when painted. Buy one already decorated, or decorate your own!

Unpainted barrels are $95; painted barrels are $120.

Note: Water collected in rain barrels is not to be used for drinking
