"Save a rainy day"

And collect pure rainwater with our beautiful, one of a kind, rain harvesting systems.

Since 1998 we've been building wood-clad, steel-banded rain barrels (often called cisterns) and rain harvesting systems, with hand-built lids, stands and screens. We're dedicated to building very attractive, efficient, and easy to install systems that blend well with any garden. We are a local business offering our rain barrel systems in the Portland - Vancouver metropolitan area with the exception of our accessories which we ship nationwide.

Our wood is western red cedar, purchased through local family-owned saw mills that acquire damaged, reclaimed, or salvaged lumber. All the wood scraps and accumulated cut-ends are donated to our neighbors who need firewood kindling.

After milling the wood down to our specifications, we miter each stave on both edges and dado a channel for the banding. We then hand coat each stave with high quality semi-transparent stain and coat the lids with clear-satin spar urethane for added protection.

Full Flow Rain Saver System, safety rail

Combine any one of our rain barrel systems with a drip irrigation or soaker hose kit using a Solar Rain Barrel Timer to greatly increase the function and efficiency of your system. For many gardeners, water conservation is the main reason for using a drip system, and with an automatic timer, you can cope with a busy schedule while your garden flourishes without you.

By using a Rainbarrel Man rain barrel, you will help reduce water pollution! In a rain storm, oil, pesticides, animal waste, and fertilizers from our lawns, sidewalks, driveways, and streets are washed into sewers that often overflow into rivers, contaminating fish and other wildlife. Your rainwater harvesting system helps prevent rain from becoming polluted storm water and puts it to a better use through drip irrigation.

The Rainbarrel Man Co. is headquartered in the St. Johns neighborhood of N Portland, OR. The builders of our award winning cedar-cladded rain barrels are Mike Hillebrecht, located in the Maywood Park Neighborhood of NE Portland, Oregon, and DFC Wood Crafts, located in the Cascade Park neighborhood of SE Vancouver, Washington.
