I'm hoping someone can help me. We are renting our house which has two large gardens but no outside tap! Last summer I had to ferry lots water to and fro, because our soil is basically sand (old heathland).
So I thought I could install a water butt in the back garden. Now because we are renting we would obviously have to ask the landlords permission and leave it here when we eventually leave. Does anyone else use one that they don't connect to a downpipe? I am wondering if you could use a giant funnel with a mesh in to stop leaves etc getting in? would these be affective or a waste of time. (thinking I can take it with us if we move)
Any help would be much appreciated, I want to capture some of this persistant rain, so I can use it later in the year
