200 litre black water butt with girl and watering can
"Two tier water butt with planters

The rainwater butt arrived on time sturdily packaged with a straight forward set of instructions to get it installation started. The butt has had its first in-flow of rain which has filled the top tier and overflowed to partly fill the lower tier. The planters look really good now filled with a mix of flowering plants, although the top planting tray isn't very deep so the larger plant that I had for the centre of the tray was left in its pot and the rest of the plants fitted around it. The tubes for filling watering cans work really well providing a rapid water flow."

"Brilliant rain collection without the risk of overflowing
Really pleased with our rainwater terrace, assembly was straightforward, although I did not have the strength to attach the drain tubes, my other half managed. We’ve had a lot of rain since and it’s great to know we have water for the garden without having to worry if it will overflow. Still need to plant it up, but already looks great as is" 

"Great Water Butt planter
This was dispatched quickly and I have just connected it and planted it up. it is very easy to assemble and with all the rain we have had I can say that it all works well. Looks great at the front of the house which means I no longer have to carry my watering can through the house to water the plants in the front garden."

"2 Tier Water Butt - Looks Great!

Excellent delivery response and packaging. Very pleased with the ease of assembly and general robustness of the materials used. Have populated the planters and are looking forward to a winter display in a very functional water butt. Nothing but praise for the response by Rainwater Terrace to a sticking valve on one drain tube. A satisfying experience from start to finish."

"My Third Rainwater Terrace
I love These Water butts; they are very functional providing efficient collection of rainwater from the out buildings in my garden but also providing planters so that I can surround the butt with beautiful plants and flowers. The collected rainwater waters the plants saving time. I like the method of accessing the water; the watering can fills so quickly. I am very pleased."

"Excellent product happy customer two years later!!!!
This is a review two years later! However when just been planting up and we are so pleased with the way the product has stayed looking like we have just purchased it. We use it constantly and it has never stopped working the way it should do i.e. water remains clean and clear doesn't block up. The plastic although situated in hot sun (when it shines) still looks as good as new not faded at all!

We made the purchase at the Harrogate Flower show and took a long while to decide whether to go ahead with the purchase. So pleased we did. We are hoping to fit another in at some stage.Thank you for such a great design."


There are so many positive comments about the Rainwater Terrace water butt from our customer we have narrowed it down to the top 5 things that our customers love about this water butt:

  • It looks great at the front of a house, we hear this so many times that they have finally found a water butt they are happy to place on view at the front of their house.
  • That the system is expandable and customisable to the space available, we have a lot of repeat customers who add more to their original water butt purchase.
  • The planters look great, although our planters are compact you can grow a lot of flowers, herbs, salad leaves or small fruits in them. The self watering feature ensures that the planters stay watered as long as some rain has flowed through the system.
  • The drain tube taps fill up watering cans so fast! The taps on our water butt are not really taps at all they are large bore tubes with a control valve so water flows out with no restriction when filling watering cans and our customers love this.
  • Our customer service is the best! We are a small company but take each order and email seriously we aim to do everything in our power to ensure orders are dispatched quickly and that any queries are dealt with by our knowledgeable customer service team who all own and use the Rainwater Terrace water butt so they know exactly how to help.
