Water Capturing Class with Phillip Jennings

Time: Sun. June 7, 2015 1:30pm-3:00pm

Location: Wabash Feed & Garden Store

Give your plants the water they really want-rain water. Attend the Water Capturing class and learn what it will take to catch the rain from your roof for your garden needs. For most roofs in Houston, the amount of rain you can catch is basically limited to the amount of rain you can hold. At Wabash we sell 40 gallon and 55 gallon rain catching barrels. Catching that much rain is incredibly easy and a great feature for your home vegetable garden or potted plants. If you have the capacity to catch a larger amount, you may be able to water your entire yard. Come with your yard specifications and watering needs in mind, and as a class, we will find out what it will take for your home to catch the rain.
