Gardening season is back, and the Burke Mountain community has a green initiative that makes gardening easier for you and the environment! Every single-family home at The Foothills at Burke Mountain was built with a rain barrel – a clever device for water conservation.
How do they work?
Rain barrels are used to collect rain water, providing an easy way to conserve water. They come equipped with a filtration system to ensure your water is clean, giving you a great supply for all your landscaping and gardening needs. Not only does this help conserve water, but also using this water for your gardens and allowing it to be fed into the ground rather than a storm pipe helps to maintain base flows in nearby creeks.
With the hot summer months in full swing, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of your rain barrel! Use the rain barrel to water your flower pots and garden beds, and feel good about water conservation.
