Gravity Feed

A clever way to incorporate the look and structure or dry laid stone in a rain barrel application, this galvanized cow trough is clad with random quarried limestone rocks to form an attractive garden feature that doubles for a serving area for garden party food. Watering the garden then becomes a treat.

This trough was painted black to give the water a look of depth. It is situated higher than most of the surrounding garden and so a lot of watering is done by gravity feed through a hose attached to the base of the trough.
