Nice work! I really like the stacked rain barrels. I think I would rig it up with a drip irrigation system.

I was a little confused by price. For the compost tea rain barrel you paid 90 bucks and it came fully functional with spicket and screen and everything?

Also do you have an estimate of total cost for the double rain barrel system, I imagine that must of cost a good bit overall.

Thanks... your setup is awesome!!

Chris, very nice well thought out backyard garden. My watering system is a bit different but the goal is the same as yours, to water the garden with collected rain water. Good luck with all your garden this year.
