Rain Barrel Pre-Order Sale (Postponed until fall 2020)


Discounts for Rain Barrels in Hoffman, Elbow Lake, and Ashby will still be available when we start selling the barrels this fall. If you would like to be placed on a list to be contacted in the fall please call (218) 685-5395.



Rain barrels allow you to save stormwater coming from your gutter system. Simply divert your gutter downspout into the barrel and you will be able to collect and store water for your garden!

These barrels come fully assembled and are 24” Deep x 24” Wide x 32” High and can hold a total of 45 gallons.

  • The large opening and flat back design allow for easy installation and placement of the downspout while the spoke and wheel pattern in the top of the barrel keeps it child and pet safe.
  • The overflow connection at the back of the barrel allows excess water to flow down and underneath the barrel to direct it away from foundations.
  • Spigots on the side of the barrel allow you to connect multiple Rain Catcher barrels in-series for easy expansion of your rain water storage capacity.
  • The aluminum mesh screen keeps out debris and mosquitoes to keep the water clear.

Grant Soil and Water Conservation District is taking orders for these barrels through April 30th, 2020.
