While rainfall has been hard to come by in recent weeks, Denise Kistner with the University of Illinois Extension Office of Christian County explains that those with rain barrels were able to benefit from heavy rains this spring.

She says that those barrels can prove to be beneficial to gardens and lawns during times of drought like the area has seen recently.

Kistner adds that there is plenty of work to be done with your yard during the fall to help ensure its growth and health for next year.
