Rain Barrel Reviews: Lars's Quick Picks
Not everyone wants to spend a lot of time digging through all the information on our site to find the best rain barrel for their house. When you're looking at 20 different rain barrels in every conceivable shape and size, it's hard to compare.

If you're in a hurry, or you trust me enough to go with what I think, consider one of these two rain barrels.


  • This Woodgrain Rain Barrel is one of our top sellers, and I think it's the best looking rain barrel that we offer. It's designed to look like an old fashioned whiskey barrel, but it has a flat back so that it goes right up against the side of your house, saving space. It holds about 50 gallons.

  • This 58 gallon rain barrel isn't the prettiest one you've ever seen, but it's great because it takes an old barrel that was previously used to store food and reuses it. You're keeping a barrel out of the landfill, and you're also capturing rainwater with it. You'll get double eco-friendly points from Al Gore, or whoever it is who gives out those kinds of things. Even if you don't care about the points, you'll like the low price on this rain barrel.

    There are several accessories that you should also consider if you are going to buy a rain barrel. Make sure that you have some kind of downspout attachment to make it easier to get water into the barrel. The Garden Watersaver is our most popular. It works with both completely sealed barrels and the regular rain barrels that we have for sale. Don't forget mosquito dunks. Each dunk lasts up to a month, and kills mosquito larvae before they can hatch. They are safe for other living creatures though, and can even be used in fish ponds. We also have a cool battery powered electric pump to get the water out a little quicker.
