With our country’s great summer climate, we can look forward to spending our time outdoors enjoying the warm weather in our gardens…

However, a gorgeous garden requires work, especially when it comes to keeping it well watered. The ideal solution is a rainwater tank, but if you don’t have space to place it discretely behind a wall, it can be an eyesore.

The Pioneer Plastics’ 500l rainwater tank is the perfect addition to every garden and outdoor space as the aesthetics of the tank mean it will enhance this space and  does not need to be hidden away while the operation of the rainwater harvesting system is simple, but efficient.

Its sandstone colour complements any outdoor colour set up, and its 20mm brass tap completes this pleasing look. This product is also made of a 100% recyclable UV stabilised material.

The rainwater tank itself has an inner black lining to prevent algae growth with an overflow and a ¾” outlet at the bottom of the tank which can be connected to a water pump. For easy access to the tank, it also has a ¾” tap.

When’s the best time to water your garden?

Early in the morning is best. When you water your garden in the evening it can encourage fungus growth. Also rather water your garden twice a week very well than every day. If you have pot plants make sure they also get enough water as pots can get extremely hot.

In addition to a rainwater tank you can also use mulch which will help the soil to retain moisture. Alternatively, you can use water retention granules, peat, vermiculite, perlite, or clay aggregate. Keep your garden clear of weeds and remove any diseased, damaged, or dead debris so your plants get all the water.
