Raised Garden Beds with Water Tank September 6, 2017 Viking Plastics has developed a ‘Garden Tank’ consisting of raised garden beds with a 1600 litre water tank underneath. Garden Tanks are suitable for use in domestic and commercial installations. The Garden Tank is designed to be connected to standard down pipes to collect rain water. The harvested rain water can be used for toilet flushing or garden watering. The raised garden beds section is 300mm deep and is removable. Garden Tanks are easy to install, relatively light in weight and can be customized to suit individual requirements. No special lifting equipment is required. The tank should be installed on a level compacted base consisting of road base material or compacted ¼ minus screenings.
