The garden needs a great of water to keep it looking good and to help bring on any vegetables you may be growing. But with the current dry winter and drought conditions in the South and East here is a shortage of water for the garden. In the South east a hose pipe ban has come into effect so you will not be able to use an hose pipe in your garden.
Considering the amount of water available in North Western England, Wales and Scotland it ludicrous that a national grid had not been built to carry this life crucial liquid around the country. I do understand this would be very expensive but this could have been built using some of the North Sea Oil money which flowed into this country during the 1980's and 1990's. But is appears the government of that day was more interested in selling off national assets such as water, gas and electric rather than investing in the infrastructure of our country.
The garden shed can be utilised to help with this and just by adding gutters, downpipes and a water barrel to the shed you can recover all the water which would go straight into the ground. The water barrel is key and you can get an automatic overflow trap which means when the barrel is full the water can flow onto the ground as normal.
The water barrel would normally go behind the garden shed but you still need to access the tap on the bottom of the barrel so you may need to move it alongside the shed instead. What I did for my wife's barrel was to put it on some bricks by the corner of her potting shed and this helped to make it easy to put a watering can under the tap. With your garden shed you may be fine but I recommend sorting out a place for the barrel before filling it as it will be extremely heavy then. You may not get a great deal of water unless the weather changes but every little will help in your garden.
In Iowa, USA, a J J DeRyke, is well committed to saving water and eco-friendly gardening by catching the rain water as it falls off his garden shed as well as his house and garage. He had installed a system of ten large water barrels in his garden and this catches the rainfall for use in his garden thus ensuring none of the water is wasted.
This trend is being more and more common across that region of America and there are many local groups encouraging others to follow their examples and also using their garden sheds to catch the rain water. They are publicising this through garden community events and by education events as well as by rain water barrel sales.
Spokesperson for Iowa City Council, Maeve Clark, said it's an hot subject for more than one reason and that people are becoming interested in water conservation and they can see they can do that with a water barrel in their garden. People are using their garden sheds and gardening more than ever and looking back at how their ancestors managed their gardens. In those days water barrels were used extensively. The water barrels were normally placed at the corner of the house as well as the garden shed with a down spout during the water into the barrel. This water was then dispensed around the garden for crops and for the plants and flowers.
You can follow their example and use your garden shed in this way. With the water you save this will help the local water companies eke out their dwindling water supplies.
