Installing a water butt can be a great way to keep lawns and plants hydrated in the dry summer months, a water butt can easily fill in a few hours with light rainfall.

In the current hot dry weather it does not take long for lawns to turn brown, with the rising cost of water it can become expensive to use a hosepipe daily. Installing a water butt provides you with a free source of natural rainwater to use on the garden.
