The New and Improved 50-gallon “IVY” Rain Barrel

March 12, 2012. The Watauga County Cooperative Extension, Soil and Water Conservation District, and Town of Boone are working with Rain Water Solutions to offer High Country residents the opportunity to purchase the new and improved “IVY” rain barrel at the discounted price of $70 versus the regular retail price of $89.  

Not all rain barrels are created equal.  The “IVY” rain barrel provides a new era of design innovation for an economical price.   The forest green barrel features a 50-gallon capacity, locking lid, 2 overflow ports, screened inlet and it is made from 50 percent recycled plastic. Additionally, the entire barrel and all the components are made in the US. Dimensions are 43 inches high and 22 inches in diameter.  

There is an “IVY” rain barrel on display in the foyer of the Cooperative Extension Building at 971 West King Street.
