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."

Water butts that look great at the front of a house

When installing a water butt we often look for places that are hidden away for example behind a shed or greenhouse or down the side of a garage out of sight, this often means that the water butt and its store of fresh rainwater is simply forgotten about.

Rainwater Terrace water butts address this issue, our water butts look great installed or a patio or at the front of a property, they can be made in to a stunning feature by planting them with cascading trailing greenery and flowers.

Are you paying to water your garden?

It sounds crazy but you could be paying too much to water your garden. The average UK household bill for water has crept up to £393 per year. Much of this water is actually used outside to water plants,lawns and wash cars.

Most people don't know that if you install a water butt you can do all this for free, the savings soon mount up if you are watering hanging baskets, containers and garden boarders on a regular basis. A water butt can fill up over night with a good downpour, this water can then be used over the following week to keep plants well hydrated.

Rainwater Terrace water butts are simple to assemble and install, they look great too so they do not need to be hidden away. water butts that look great by rainwater terrace
