Water butt offer for residents
As part of our plans to work towards being carbon net zero by 2030, we have teamed up with getcomposting.com to also offer residents half price water butts, as well as our usual subsidised composter offer.
A water butt is a simple way to reduce the impact your garden has on the environment, making use of rainwater and reducing the amount of tap water you use.
Plants and vegetables often flourish more as a result of water in a butt, with it being at a similar ambient temperature as the surrounding environment, as opposed to tap water which is often much cooler.
