The Tire Garden at Dandelion Ranch, a Los Angeles flower shop.
The Tired Lounge chair, design by Leo Kempf.
Materials: recycled tires and birch.
Peru: Invasion Verde, installed 2010.
This public park in Lima was created in the middle of the the city, and incorporates recycled tires for planters and a children’s playground. A few rolling hills and grass-cushioned benches complete Lima’s urban public garden.
What a great idea for school and community gardens: brightly painted tires, filled with dirt and stacked together as planter beds.
