Should a water butt have to be hidden away?

Water butts of the past have a bad reputation for being ugly most people locate a water butt somewhere out of site often behind a shed, plant or garage.

When a water butt is out of sight it is often not used to its potential and the fresh water collected is left to stagnate while a hosepipe or watering can filled by a tap is used.

This is not the case with a Rainwater Terrace® it can be placed on a patio and planted to look great all year round.

Growing herbs in a vertical garden

We have found that herbs do especially well in Rainwater Terrace planters and with a constant supply of fresh rainwater they flourish.

The herbs that we have tried are :-

  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Mint
  • Chives
  • Dill
  • Sage

It is also great that the herb planters are removable so can be taken in to the kitchen whilst cooking and then moved back onto the rainwater terrace outside.
