Garden Water Towers
Our garden water towers add that country charm to any outdoor space. They can be out in the open natural habitat, such as a large yard or even paired with our decorative windmill. They pair look extraordinary together, giving that old time appeal! Or, as a featured accessory in a smaller garden, or curb appeal as you enter your driveway!
They are sold as decorative pieces, but some customers have used liners (from a home improvement store) to convert them into a functioning water reservoir for gardens. One customer attached a downspout to the back of the garden water tower and collected rain water. Attaching a spigot and hose from a local hardware store, they were able to use the stored water for the plants growing close to the water tower.
Historically, water tanks have been around since the mid-1800s. They had several purposes to reserve water; provide fire protection to small towns or farms, supply water for steam engines of the early trains, and to provide drinking water. They were once, a much needed infrastructure to help with survival. Some current homesteaders are returning to this old method as part of their preferred life-style of living “off-the-grid”.
Water towers are a great way to add height to your landscape. They are also very attractive when placed next to our windmills or chuck wagons. Our water Towers are constructed with stained, pressure treated yellow pine and galvanized steel. They come in several popular sizes and we do offer budget-friendly options.
We offer two options, buy water tower complete and ship as a whole (separate shipping cost to be added, quote given prior to purchase) or a more budget friendly choice is to buy water tower metal parts only with a complete materials list and detailed instruction sheet on how to build the garden water tower (FREE SHIPPING for this option).
