Outdoor garden sculpture made from re-cycled machinery parts in Pennsylvania by Ben and Kate Gatski of Gatski Metal.
A brilliant concept from a company in England: Eco Hen Houses. With three different models to choose from, these Mailbox Coops will house up to three chickens. The Deluxe Model (top) has a 4’ chicken run.
I’m obviously going to have to move to England.
A garden fence with built-in window “frames” made from scrap wood, to display window-sill-size container plants.
Good terra cotta pots can be expensive, because terra cotta pots that won’t crack are more expensive to create and import. Clay liners for chimney flues, however, are much less expensive than terra cotta pots.
These clay liners are constructed with hard-fired clay sectionals that can last for many decades, in a chimney. If they work that long inside a chimney, it seems like they might work well as bottomless container gardens. (Terra cotta chimney liners are often available at masonry yards.)
As a less-expensive alternative to making a mortared wall, wouldn’t it be fun to set these into the ground a few inches, side by side using different heights and sizes, and plant them all up like window boxes, or put them together in a group for an herb garden next to the kitchen door, or even use them to create a spiral herb garden. I’ll have to put this idea on my To Do list.
This idea has been around for a while, but it’s still fabulous: plant markers made from repurposed silverware.
Vertical gardening in bricks.
Repurposed wine bottles, as candle lanterns.

Driftwood horses, by Heather Jansch, sculptor, UK.
Yes, it is true: I do not raise chickens, but I am obsessed with chicken coops. Just like this one. Reclaimed cedar.
Cluck. I want to raise chickens when I grow up.
