Container gardening is booming across the country. Up until recently the large-sized container of choice has been the half whiskey barrel. However, whiskey barrels are heavy when filled with soil and they eventually rot.
Enter the BetterBarrel. Made from 100 percent recycled, thick-walled, UV-resistant plastic, the BetterBarrel is so tough it's backed by a 20-year warranty. The solid construction and leak-proof nature complements the natural, non-fading color. Rusted metal bands give the BetterBarrel the look of a whiskey barrel without any of the problems. Better Barrels are 1/3 the weight of wooden whiskey barrels, so they are easier to move around.
