Late spring is a great time to care for your gutters. Throughout spring, there can be so many different weather conditions, including heavy rain as well as high wind that can cause leaves, needs or other debris to fall into your gutters. Not to mention, through the fall and winter, ice and snow can actually damage them.

As anyone who lives in Vancouver knows, this is a pretty wet place. The watering restrictions that are imposed during the summer months can seem crazy as we slog through the rain soaked winter. The lower mainland does have limits on the amount of water that it can store, however, so we all need to do our part and conserve it when we can. The hefty fine attached to breaking the watering restriction is also a good reason to consider this issue. Watering your lawn outside of the designated time could run you $100.
Rainwater harvesting can be a viable way to keep your yard healthy during the summer. People have been collecting rainwater for millennia, everyone from the Egyptians to the Incans to the Venetians. Many people in Vancouver find it works for them too.
