Water butts that look great at the front of a house

When installing a water butt we often look for places that are hidden away for example behind a shed or greenhouse or down the side of a garage out of sight, this often means that the water butt and its store of fresh rainwater is simply forgotten about.

Rainwater Terrace water butts address this issue, our water butts look great installed or a patio or at the front of a property, they can be made in to a stunning feature by planting them with cascading trailing greenery and flowers.

Try planting up with plants that you would usually plant in a hanging basket such as :-

Lobelia richardii,

Petunia – trailing,

Calibrachoa,

Cape daisies,

Begonia – trailing,

Pelargonium – Ivy leaf,

Strawberries,

Creeping Jenny,

Dichondra 'Silver Falls’

Regular dead heading with ensure flowering all summer long keeping the water butt planters looking fantastic.
