Having too many old items (or new items) can take away from your garden's overall appeal . . . If you enjoy this Magazine, you will love my blog: http://upcycledgardenstyle.blogspot.com
"When I bought this old rusty RC Cola cooler I thought I might use it as a drink cooler at a party or BBQ, but soon realized it had a better future, becoming a potting station. With old hooks, handles, metal trays and wire baskets it has become just that. It can be wheeled around and will hold all the equipment that is needed for this job."
"Broken shoes or a shoe which lost its pair can be media to create junk garden. Rotten wood ladder will make this garden unique and match with nature around it. Old wooden fence becomes the best background for them to give natural and beautiful accent. Bougainville flowers in pink and white color are planted in the man shoes which are arranged on the wooden ladder.
Some of rolled rusted wires and old rolled cable are hung on the wooden fence to complete the junk decoration. Many kind of shoes are perfect for make this art junk garden. Make sure you create a drainage hole as a place out of water so that plants do not rot."
These natural and durable building materials provide a very cool contrast to elegant succulent plants. Used bricks work even better because they have a bit of personality and history behind them, and not to forget the costs (if they are used, they are probably thrown away, so they are free) .
The tricky part is to drill the holes, it not very difficult but you’ll have to be very patient, because any shock could shatter the brick. The candle holder is optional, you can choose to do it, but it will only score points at style.
Plant this armoire anywhere inside to provide an organized potting place. Show off painted terra-cotta pots in upside-down stacks on a high shelf. Secure a paper-towel holder under the shelf for quick cleanup.
Bottom drawers can hold anything from books and magazines to knee pads and hats. Remove one drawer and use the shelf to store fabric-lined baskets that hold bulbs and seeds.
“We do lots of things, like have a garden, a compost, recycle, and also like to do artsy things out of “other things”. For example, I managed to get about 20 vintage toilet tanks in pastel colors, and used them to make planters!”
