Innovative Rainwater Terrace water butt

See how a Rainwater Terrace keeps the water moving.

 

Each time it rains water is flushed through the system replenishing the store of water which reduces stagnant water build up.

  • Rainwater is diverter into the Rainwater Terrace through a rainwater diverter attached to a down pipe. 

  • Container 1 fills from the bottom and then overflows down the central column to planter tray 1. 

  • Planter tray 1 is filled with water as container 1 overflows, this will water the planters on this level. When the planter tray is full this overflows to fill container 2. 

  • Container 2 fills and then overflows down the central column to planter tray 2. 

  • Planter tray 2 is filled with water as container 2 overflows, this waters the plants on this level. 

  • Container 3 fills and then overflows down the central column back to the drain.
