Follow the flow of rainwater from 1-8 as the water butt fills up and then overflows back to the drain once full.

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

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.
