Re: Rain barrel questions

Thanks for all the replies! After doing some looking around the house it seems the slot that would work the best is very visible in the driveway. Can anyone recommend an aesthetic yet affordable barrel that would last? Would be nice to be able to have flowers on too too. Thanks!!!
