5 Contemporary Water Butts You Need In Your Garden

During the summer months, harvesting rainwater with water butts is one of the best ways to make use of one of our most valuable, natural resources in your garden. 

When collected, rainwater can be used for watering flowers and plants, not only saving you money but rainwater is better for your plants as it is does not contain chlorine, which is harmful to beneficial microbes living in the soil.

Collecting rainwater also means you have complete control over your water supply, perfect for being able to still water your prize plants during any potential hosepipe ban.

Even tiny gardens and patios can be used to collect and store rainwater as our water butts are available in compact, space-saving sizes, some also doubling as planters for flowers or small shrubs.
