Description
Here's an earth-friendly way to collect rainwater for watering your garden or patio plants. Made in the USA, these sturdy rain barrels recycled from shipping containers that would otherwise wind up in landfills. These recycled plastic barrels add a unique touch outside your home, and can even be painted to match your house, shed, fence or other exterior décor.

Just feed your downspout into the slot on top. A screen on top keeps bugs and debris out; a spigot on the bottom lets you attach your garden hose. Harvest more water while modifying only one downspout - each barrel is outfitted with a linking fitting so that you can even connect multiple barrels. Long-lasting, heavy-duty recycled plastic won't rot like wood and can be left outdoors year-round. Because these rain barrels were previously used to protect foods as they were shipped overseas, they may have a faint food scent and their surfaces will be rugged and may have slight imperfections.

• Water-saving rain collection barrel
• Plastic fittings contract with the barrel to prevent leaks
• High-density polyethylene plastic stands up to the elements
• No need to modify your downspouts in the Spring or Fall
• Heavy-duty screening keeps mosquitoes out
• Eco-friendly: repurposes old barrels and saves water
• Can be painted to match your home, garage, shed, etc.
• Made in USA

The Olla: A Brief History

Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.


When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.


The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.


Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!

How it Works:


Water is pulled directly through the terra-cotta!
