Rainwater Terrace® generates global interest.

Design 4 Plastics has designed a new rainwater collection system that really intrigued me. While it’s not out on the market yet, I think it’s worth signing up to be notified when you can purchase them online.

This is a British product, so you’ll probably need to factor the international shipping into your budget. We can hope it becomes available in the states, however, simply because the product is rather ingenious.

As you can see, the Rainwater Terrace is completely modular. You can stack multiples together if you want to, creating an entire garden wall display. Note the overflow that sends water back down the drain if the barrel gets too full. This is a nice feature, as it means you don’t have to disconnect your rainwater collection system just to go on vacation, and there’s no danger that the system will send any water to your foundations.

The ability to plant herbs and flowers that will turn your rain barrel into a nice garden feature also struck me as a really ingenious solution as well. You won’t even have to move some of your garden water to some of your plants. The system also seems to keep the water flowing pretty nicely, which means there’s less of a chance for it to develop algae or to house mosquitoes. I’m looking forward to seeing this product in action, and in seeing how well it actually interacts with gutters of all types.

Buyers visiting Glee can see all of the winning and highly commended products in the 'Visitor Hub' areas of the show, where you'll also find the hundreds of other entries. Entries from exhibitors in Hall 5 can be found in the Hub central to Hall 5; exhibitors from Hall 4, and large-scale entries from Hall 5, can be found in Hall 4's Hub.

Judges’ comments: Simon Moore said:  "This is an innovative rainwater collection product that’s both practical and decorative.  The idea combines a two- or three-tier container to collect and re-use rainwater, with a decorative, multi-level planter that can be used for plants or grow-your-own.  Enabling the plants to feed from the water butt is a great feature; the plants made it attractive enough to place outside your house, and it’s at a good price point."
 

Rainwater terrace is a real star of the show the Rainwater Terrace by Design 4 Plastics Ltd has been a real star of the show, picking up two awards and attracting a lot of interest on their stand in the Innovators Zone.

Design 4 Plastics used Glee to launch the Rainwater Terrace and received lots of comments, none of them negative. Managing director Keith Bell said it was a great to receive the two awards. "We believe in the product but for other people to be convinced by it too is just fantastic." The judges said: "Enabling plants to feed from the water butt is a great feature. The plants make it attractive enough to place outside your house, and it's a good price point too."
