    We do have rain barrels. They are black 50 gal with the complete kit that is required to connect to the gutter (including the tool for drilling holes). They have the feature that you can turn the lid upside down and use it for a planter. See attached example although the rain barrel in the picture is one of the larger barrels that we no longer sell. The cost is $75 and they are available year round at our office located at 4811 Carr Drive Fredericksburg VA 22408. Our office hours are 8 – 4:30 M-F. Give us a call to make sure that someone is here.
