They are the most versatile water butt on the market providing not only rainwater storage for use on gardens but provide planting space which is great for and flowers or plants that would go into hanging baskets or small pots as well as a huge variety of salad leaves, herbs and small fruits such as strawberry plants.

All the planters which and detachable from the water butt are self watering as long as some rainwater has flowed through the system.

The Rainwater Terrace water butt & growing system surprises people when they see inside, there is an inbuilt filtration system that catches silt and debris off a roof firstly in the top planter tray and secondly in the top water container this means water collected in the lower water containers is much cleaner which is ideal for car washing. The through flow system not only provides cleaner water butt it acts as an overflow back to the downpipe which ensures the system will never overflow out of the top and the water within the system is kept fresh as the water in the system is constantly refreshed each time new rainfall enters the water butt.
