Make your rain water tank into a vertical garden

jojo slimline tanks

Water tanks allow you to harvest precious rainwater during the rainy season to use during the drier months. This is great for conserving water, but not always so wonderful from an aesthetic point of view. Instead of struggling to find a hiding place for your tank, give it pride of place near a patio or entrance and transform it into a vertical garden. A specially made planting bag can be wrapped around the water tank and filled with your choice of plants – herbs, strawberries, annuals or succulents – instantly softening the look of the tank and turning it into an attention-grabbing feature. This is an excellent idea for smaller gardens where space is at a premium as it also gives you extra room to grow your favourite plants.
