Rain barrels are a great way to conserve water when looking to save on the water bill or have as backup in times of drought or other limited water usage. You can keep more than one easily and neatly if you build the proper stand to house them. Similar to building a deck, but easier and faster, you’ll want to measure out an area for the number of barrels and then make sure it’s strong enough to keep them contained and upright, even when filled with water. A rain barrel stand is a simple weekend project for DIY garden support.
- The entire DIY process will take at least 2 days if you have help.
- The DIY water barrels aren’t connected to a pump, so gravity helps the water come out.
- Before you add the concrete, you need to make sure that the entire area is leveled.
“The higher your stand, the more water pressure you’ll have when watering, so feel free to go super tall if you have the room!”
