Can't tell you how pleased I am with my new Rainwater Terrace water butt. I planted up a succulent plant display as soon as the butt arrived and once it was all in place and fitted the display went on the top, looks amazing. Plan to get some colourful heucheras for the side planters. The system to fill watering cans etc is so quick, no hanging around at the water butt as water dribbles out of a tap. My old water butt has been relegated to a secondary 'filler' and will get used in emergencies only. How have I managed to garden for years without hearing about Rainwater Terrace, it was pure chance that I saw your details in a free magazine at my local garden centre, you need to be advertising more widely.

The Water butt is a very nifty piece of kit and because it can be decorated with plants it can be placed at the front of the house where the majority of the wall and hanging baskets are. It is quite large and so getting the right plants to mask it is important, but so far I am very pleased with it. The first day it was in place a passing couple came to compliment me on it and took an interest in it with a view to getting one themselves. I agree with the other reviewer's suggestion that a blanking plug should be provided for the unused drain tube hole in the base - I made one myself to do the job. Also, perhaps an option for a narrow planter to sit in front of the base and a means of fastening could be designed. This would enable more plants to be used to mask the butt.
I can also strongly recommend Rainwater Terrace, where I bought it from, for their excellent customer service.
The rainwater butt arrived on time sturdily packaged with a straight forward set of instructions to get it installation started. The butt has had its first in-flow of rain which has filled the top tier and overflowed to partly fill the lower tier. The planters look really good now filled with a mix of flowering plants, although the top planting tray isn't very deep so the larger plant that I had for the centre of the tray was left in its pot and the rest of the plants fitted around it. The tubes for filling watering cans work really well providing a rapid water flow. My only recommendation would be the provision of a blanking plug for the un-used drain tube hole in the base, to stop the base becoming a nest for vermin. Apart from that I'm very pleased with the rainwater terrace.
Really pleased with our rainwater terrace, assembly was straightforward, although I did not have the strength to attach the drain tubes, my other half managed. We’ve had a lot of rain since and it’s great to know we have water for the garden without having to worry if it will overflow. Still need to plant it up, but already looks great as is.
