Three small holes can be drilled into the bottom of the planter to allow excess water to drain down into the barrel. Capillary matting can be placed at the bottom of the planter to keep moisture in the planter and prevent soil going into the barrel. Alternatively Capillary matting can be placed on top of the screen guard. The rear hole in the planter, if not used for a down pipe, can be used to stand a plant pot in to give height to any planting.

Who would think that out of all the hard work I've put into my garden over the past year, the thing that has had the most compliments has been this water butt - it does look amazing and I think it will weather in well. I have mostly left the top to fill with water but actually it's handy to place the odd dry flower pot in for an hour to have a good drink. It was easy to put together and the hose is really handy as it's got a better flow than the tap. I'm considering buying another one for the front of my house to encourage myself to actually water plants out front. It's not cheap but probably worth it as so much better than the usual black ones that I already have a couple of. For the reference the company was also really good at keeping me up to date about my order as there were delays due to manufacturing issues.
the only comment I have is the tap which must be for show as the Handel touches the side. For a couple of £ a good quality bib cock should have been provided
