Hand-Painted Rain Barrels

We are pleased to now offer you custom painted rain barrels by Artist Kathy Carlson. How did she get started in this media? She says, “I started researching how to make and install rain barrels because I had a large water bill. I garden a lot and water my flowers and plants often. I also have a large pool that needed filling. While rain barrels offered a solution, the problem I had was that most barrels are boring. I love bright vivid colors and enjoy painting. So I decided to learn how to paint barrels and bring my art outside.”

Custom painted barrels start at $150 (barrel with spigot included).

Kathy suggests installing her barrels with a downspout diverter kit. It makes the barrel a completely closed system and your overflow is your downspout. Water is diverted to the barrel and when it is full it switches back to the downspout. It looks nicer too.

Here is a link to purchase these diverter kits:

What sort of space are you creating in your yard? Plants can help shape that space, creating outdoor rooms divided by living walls of shrubs like firebush, Florida privet, Simpson’s stopper and others, or sitting areas overlooking a peaceful wildflower meadow where bees and butterflies find food.

If you have an idea for an outdoor living space but need help with plant selection, bring in your ideas and we’ll be happy to sit down and help you!
