The Rain Wizard Eco 65 Gallon Rain Barrel is made with 100% recycled material and features an attractive faux oak barrel design so it naturally fits in with your home and landscape. The top of the rain barrel features a 1 cubic foot, self-draining planter top that allows you to plant flowers or a small herb garden. The downspout opening is protected by a plastic mesh screen to keep out bugs, animals, and debris while still being easy to remove for cleaning and maintenance. A front-side overflow directs excess water away from your outside wall. The flat-back design is one of the most convenient features as it allows your barrel to sit right up against your home so you don't have to worry about purchasing excess downspout parts.
