Rain Barrels

I know . . . I've got lots of questions lately.

Does anyone use a rain barrel?  I have a great opportunity to capture rain water as we don't have gutters/downspouts.  Living with a steep grade, the drainage is "built in" so to speak.  The only gutter runs the length of the garage and currently, just dumps onto a pile of rocks.  I also love the idea of the kids getting water for the plants without having to turn the hose on!!

I was looking at a rain barrel in the Plow & Hearth catalog that had a mesh cover.  If anyone has one with a cover, I am wondering how small that mesh it.  Would I be better just covering it during dry spells?

Thanks,

Joan
