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

Looking for a nice looking water butt?

Look no further, with a Rainwater Terrace water butt you do not need to hide it away behind the garage or shed it can take pride of place on your patio.

All our Rainwater Terrace water butts come with self-watering planters that can be clipped into place on the water butt. 

Planting with trailing plants and summer annuals can be a great way to create a stunning flower display that can look fantastic for the whole season.

The self watering planters stop the flowers from drying out helping them stay healthy for longer. With regular dead heading little other maintenance is needed as long as there has been some rain flowing through the system.
