Rainwater is the best thing for our gardens, its natural, what our gardens are used to and best of all it is free!

With water meters being rolled out across the country and the price of water rising installing a water butt is a great investment. With Rainwater Terrace water buts not only are you saving valuable rainwater but you can create a stunning flower display or mini grow your own plot right on your doorstep. Rainwater Terrace really is the modern stylish way to save rainwater at home.

 

The stylish water but for your patio

No longer do you need to hide your water butt away behind your shed; out of site out of mind. You can have your Rainwater Terrace water butt standing proud on your patio within easy reach for watering hanging baskets, containers, garden plants and indoor plants.

Rainwater Terrace water butts have some clever features which make them fun & easy to use as well as practical additions to any garden.

  • The unique over flow system means that old rainwater is pushed out back down the drain when new rainwater enters the system meaning your water is always fresh.
  • Planters are self-watering and detachable meaning that they are easy to remove to replant or take inside to trim herbs from.
  • The clever flexible drain tubes allow you to fill a watering can in seconds no longer do you have to stand and wait for a slow leaky water butt tap.
  • The complete modular system lets you expand your rainwater saving capacity to suit your requirements. The modules can be put together to suit different sizes and shapes it is a totally customisable rainwater saving system.

Designed and manufactured in the UK you can be sure that you are getting a high quality product, all parts are made out of tough heavy gauge UV stable plastic suitable for all weather conditions.
