Keeping a stunning Garden Design healthy and looking the way it should can be a big task, especially during the hot Summer months as this means using a lot of water to ensure your plants and flowers are kept healthy throughout the dry spells. Watering your Garden does not only cost you time but it can also cost you a lot of money and make your water bill rocket. However, a water butt might be the answer to not only keeping your Garden Design looking the way it should but also to keep your water bill costs down.
If you’ve ever thought about investing in a water butt, then now is a great time to do so. With the Winter weather bringing the rain you can be sure you will collect a lot of water throughout the dull rainy months which will be perfect for use in the garden next year.
It’s easy to fit a water butt to your house or shed and as soon as the rain hits you’ll get free water filling up ready to use throughout the next year on your Garden. By fitting one to the side of your house you could be collecting 1,000’s of litres of water that would otherwise run straight down the drain and be wasted.
Water Butts are available in a range of sizes to suit your Garden size starting at around 100l and going up to anything as large as 1000l. The larger size you go for the more water you will have for the Summer months, but as we all know you can be sure we will still have some rain during the Summer months to keep yours topped up! A smaller water butt is a great place to start as they do not require much space therefore can be fitted without taking up much room on your patio or decking.
Connecting your water butt to your downpipe is an easy task as there are many various different types of connectors ensuring not a drop of that water flowing along your gutter is wasted.
As well as your water butt saving you money, they are also very useful if a hosepipe ban is put in place in your county during the Summer.
