Nice looking rain barrel
Melissa from United States
I really like the way this rain barrel looks in my yard. It's actually pretty. It's well constructed and feels like it will last. The planter is a nice touch, but not very functional. There is no drainage, and it's very shallow. When it rains, it has a tendency to rinse the soil out, and water log the planter. You can't drill drainage holes without having the soil dripping into the barrel, so it's a catch-22 situation. I might just take the plant out, and drill drainage holes, so it doesn't become a mosquito pool. It's a shame, because it looks really nice with the plant in it.
A Gardner's Dream

I was thrilled to receive my rain barrel and immediately my husband and I created the perfect area to place it. It has already paid for itself in numerous ways.Not only does it save money on my water bill as I can easily water outside gardens by attaching a hose or filling my watering can and keep my indoor greens happy, but it adds such a beautiful curbside appeal to my home! Next spring I will take advantage of the top area by planting a red hummingbird favorite plant. I get so excited talking about this rain barrel tha twe are even considering getting a second one to place near our vegetable/fruit garden. The only weakness if you attach a hose is that you can not water higher than the level of the spigot, but to me, this is a minor issue...nothing a watering can cant handle! Value and price are excellent (trust me, I did the research).
Great answer to water conservation
Joanne from Los Angeles, CA– Verified Buyer
This rain barrel fits nicely under my kitchen window. Our new gutters were fitted perfectly to the barrel, and after our first rain the other night: Voila! water stored for gardening on a dry day. Color and quality is very nice. The top well to put plants to dress it up is brilliant. All my neighbors are asking me where I got it, and how can they get one too. I have 3 others, and might get one more for the garage area.
Beautiful rain barrels
Deborah from Jackson, MI– Verified Buyer
I have purchased 2 of these for my home. I need to get one more and I will have all my downspouts covered. I put stones in the top and I like the way that looks. They are very attractive for rain barrels and seem to be very durable. And 50 gallons in each to use on my gardens. I am really pleased with the purchase.
Castilla 50 Gallon Rain Barrel
BONNIEJEAN from FELTON, DE– Verified Buyer
The Castilla 50 Gallon Rain Barrel is much darker than pictured but it still looks very nice with our tan colored siding. We are thinking about purchasing a second one for the other end of our house. Our friends have complimented us on how nice it looks and ask us where we bought it.

JoEll from Racine, WI– Verified Buyer
I love this rain barrel! It was reasonably priced , arrived when they said and was a snap to assemble. I couldn't wait for it to rain! We have had it set up for about a month and its great to water my porch plants with the water it collects.

the rain barrels work well and look good...water does not come out of the spigots as strong as I would like but otherwise a very good product
Perfect Rain Barrel
Suzanne from Albuquerque, NM– Verified Buyer
We are very pleased with the Castilla 50 gallon rain barrel. The charcoal color goes well with our patio furniture and the railroad ties bordering the garden. Note; the parts were inside the barrel and we had to unscrew the screen to get them out. Would definitely recommend!
Nice rain barrel
Texas buyer from Texas
..but the hose that attaches to the spout does not come with the barrel and is very expensive. Otherwise, the barrel looks very nice even next to the patio.

we ordered 2 of these, the reason was for the look.and the fact that we can plant flowers on top and they add such a nice look to the yard
