Ali Rochford Get set for summer in the garden, and hose down your water bills, by installing a rainwater harvesting system
With water charges looming on the horizon, now is a good time to think about installing a rainwater harvesting system for your garden.Of course, Murphy’s law might dictate that as soon as you install it, we will have the wettest summer on record. But even if this does happen, there is no denying our water system is under huge pressure. As gardeners, we should be doing what we can to ease this pressure, especially in summer, when reservoirs are under more strain due to parched lawns and dehydrated hanging baskets.
