Eight, 10- and 18-inch-diameter PVC pipes cut to varying heights serve as the bases for these mosaic pillars. Overturned terra-cotta saucers turn two of the pipes into pedestals; the third cradles a flowerpot.

West 21st House by Frits de Vries

West 21st House by Frits de Vries | Up Cycled Garden | Scoop.it

This 3070 sq ft single family residence with detached garage is located on a 42 ft wide lot in Vancouver. The Dunbar Residence explores the potential for diversity of spatial experience in a home with a flexible plan that accommodates changes in everyday family life. In response to the owners‘ love of nature, interior-exterior relationships are established with outdoor patios and gardens at all levels. Spatially, light is used to define scale and intimacy within the home.

Designed and oriented for passive solar, the project also employs ultra high efficiency windows, solar hot water heating and a high performance heating / cooling system, including heat recovery that allow the home to operate with low energy consumption. The careful selection of appliances, plumbing fixtures, and lighting also reduce energy and water consumption. Interior elements, such as flooring and millwork, include recycled materials and low/no emission finishes. Planters on the roof reduce heat reflectance and rainwater runoff. Landscape design makes use of native, drought tolerant plant species and reclaimed stone.

The home was built by Natural Balance Home Builders Inc., a construction company that specializes in green building.

DIY stepping stones

DIY stepping stones | Up Cycled Garden | Scoop.it

These cute little pavers were created by Swedish garden writer Charlotte Bladh.  

 

Mix cement as to the packet’s instructions. Find a suitable mould, plus a huge leaf, such as a rhubarb leaf. Oil the leaf so it releases easily. Lay down some plastic or tarpaulin on a flat surface and place the leaf, underside up, on top. Place the mould on top of the leaf, then fill with concrete. You may need to place a weight on top of the mould to keep it firmly in place. Let the concrete dry, then remove the mould. Set aside in a warm, dry spot to cure for a couple of weeks before placing it in your garden.

"Consisting of several private spaces, infused with childhood mementos from both my own past as well as my daughter’s, my garden is less a showpiece and more like a diary. It’s a place to play, experiment and show my personality, and I love it with all my heart."  ~Rebecca Sweet

Unique garden gate | Up Cycled Garden | Scoop.it

This French door, with its glass panes still intact, separates a tenant’s cozy container garden from the homeowner’s yard. The open design of the door and lattice fence creates a sense of enclosure while still allowing views from adjoining spaces.

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 they are inexpensive (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.
