Recycled Cart for Rainwater

contest winner icon

Take an non-working lawnmower and remove the engine. Make sure the lawnmower still has its wheels and handle. Build a wooden frame around the base large enough to anchor a barrel or large pail. Place this under your downspout and collect the rainwater. When you are ready to water the garden and flowerbeds, you can push/pull the lawnmower to where you need it rather than carrying watering cans or pails to and fro.
