A gallon drum is a type of container that stores and captures rainwater draining from a person’s roof. A gallon drum typically ranges from 80 to 50 gallons and has a spigot for helping to fill watering cans. At the same time, it has a connection for a soaker hose. Combining the use of gallon drums with appropriate plant mulching and selection helps promote water conservation. Aside from that, the use of gallon drums benefits an individual’s community, garden and home.
