To make a yard as environmentally-friendly as possible, avoid using municipal water to take care of the landscape. One solution is to add a rain barrel. How much rain can you collect with a rain barrel? For every inch of rain that falls on an area of 1,000 square feet, you can expect to collect about 600 gallons of rain water. To figure out how much roof area you're collecting water from, multiple the square footage of your house and add any extensions of eaves or porch roofs.
