    This washed and tumbled river stone comes from Precourt in Sudbury, MA. It is sold as 'Mexican River Pebbles' and the color is 'mixed tan'. It comes in 'black' and 'mixed grey' too. They sell them by the bag. This is the 2-3" size. I've attached another image of a larger size - 4-5." Hope this helps!

    Hi Jan! The chain is an off-the-shelf item from Rainchains.com. Here's a link: http://rainchains.com/dbl_loops.html. The metal surround was custom, (Garden Iron in CT) as was the under-drain system. This photo doesn't show it well but above this lower, overflow drain and downspout alternative is a pebble fountain - a safe water feature for children with no standing reservoir.

Another rainwater harvesting system, this one fed by a rain chain and designed to blend seamlessly with the plantings surrounding the house for a natural look.

If you're going to go through the trouble of removing your downspouts to replace them with a rain chain, you might as well take it to the next level and enhance the area where the rain settles. Some stacked rocks or a ceramic pot with a hole drilled through the bottom looks great and helps the rain make its way into the ground.

the rainchain has a "keeper" so it doesn't blow all of the place!!

Hmmm.. wonder what that sounds like? Cool idea and I love things that remind me of totems.
