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 new multi award winning concept in rainwater collection promoting the reuse of valuable rainwater and “grow your own” sustainability. The unique patented modular design has numerous distinct advantages over other water butts on the market.
Rainwater Terrace not only saves the householder money by reusing rainwater in the garden, its modular design incorporates an integrated plant growing system enabling plants and herbs etc. to grow alongside the stored rainwater, creating an attractive addition to any home.
Rainwater Terrace helps to keep your stored rainwater fresh, reducing stagnation as it collects first in the top tier and then trickles down through the tiers as they fill and then back to the drain. With each rainfall water circulates through to replenish the system. Water can be drawn off from any tier using the fast flow drain tubes, filling a watering can Five times quicker than from a tap – no longer do you have to stand and wait! These also show the stored water level in each tier
The new water butt will be exhibited at GLEE for the first time September 2014
