Fine Gardening magazine and RainPerfect Pump is giving you a chance to win a great prize!
The RainPerfect pump provides an eco-friendly and cost effective way to power the water out of your rain barrel. The pump is powered by the included solar panel which is easy to install and works with most standard rain barrels. The RainPerfect doesn’t require electricity and provides plenty of pressure through an ordinary garden hose to run most low pressure sprinklers, water your garden, or wash your car.
