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.

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.
