In long dry spells you may need to top up the water in the Planter trays that the side and top planters take their water from. Hopefully you can use water stored in the Rainwater Terrace but if not just use tap water. Each tray holds about 2.5 litres of water before it overflows into the container below.
Rainwater Terrace water butt is a modular system which can be built up to a size, capacity and shape to suit the end user. Our best selling water butt changes from month to month but a present we have a long standing favourite which since the beginning of 2017 has been a popular choice with all customers.
New colour black & dark green is a favourite amongst gardeners across the UK
Follow the flow of rainwater from 1-8 as the water butt fills up and then overflows back to the drain once full.
The through flow of water keeps your stored rainwater fresh.
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.

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.
