Community Forklift now has a fantastic new rain barrel installed, courtesy of District Garden. Read on to find out how you can get your own rain barrel installed at your house, for a discounted price — just for being a Forklift Fan!
In business since 2011, District Garden has installed over 300 rain barrels in Washington, DC and surrounding communities in No. VA and MD. Harvesting rainwater from your home has environmental and economic advantages, with most barrels paying for themselves in 1-2 seasons. The reduction in storm water runoff protects local rivers and water tables from further contamination. Your plants and gardens also prefer the soft rainwater.
1) 55 Gallon Rain Barrel (Typically White)
2) Downspout diverter (to ensure no overflow issues)
3) All the related parts, spigots, hoses and seals required for use.
Multiple barrel installations (linked together or separate downspouts) are also quite common, and something we do on a regular basis. We also serve VA/MD and can offer a special rate of $100 for MD/VA residents within 20 miles of DC.
