Instead of sending rain to the drain, capture it with a rain barrel. Rain barrels connecting to home gutters or roof driplines provide a good source of free water for gardens and landscapes. Not only does it save precious drinking water it can reduce problematic flooding when implemented throughout a neighborhood. And a big bonus is the improvement to water quality in adjacent creeks and rivers.
