During hot and dry weather in the United Kingdom up to 50% of the total water usage is used outdoors. This maybe to water plants, wash cars or even to provide drinking water for birds.
The increase in demand for water is putting a strain on natural resources. It is vital that we now find ways to conserve this valuable resource.
Saving water in your garden is an easy way to reduce your household water bills, reduce the risk of drought orders and water restrictions and also help protect garden wildlife.
Installing a water butt in your garden is both cheap and easy and will enable you to start collecting some of the thousands of litres of rainfall which fall onto the average roof every year.
With water shortages and the media now mentioning droughts in the South of England this summer now is the perfect time to buy a water butt and begin to save water and money!
