What better way to spend a Saturday with the family than at Georgia’s largest (and most beautiful) community garden, in Suwanee?!
Succulents in a repurposed Pomerol Bordeaux wine box from Château Le Bon Pasteur. Such a lovely wooden crate should be put to work after the wine is gone.
“Illegal” Flower Power - gotta love it!
Urban gardening, using everyday urban items. Possibly illegal.
Eggshell container gardening…with succulents!
Combined: Vertical and Horizontal Potting Station
Transform a vintage wooden ladder into an outdoor potting station, complete with work counters and shelf-rungs.
The work counter is created from scrap shelving and screwed into the rungs. When potting up container gardens, soil falls through the slats into a dresser-drawer that catches the soil.

When Guerrilla Gardeners and Guerrilla Urbanists collide: Florian Rivière, Wheelbench, Vienna, September 2012.
Rivière reinvents public spaces by utilizing found objects, resulting in “a fusion of public space design, upcycling and militant expression.”
Another innovative portable bench by Rogier Martens, the wheelbarrow bench:
Fall flowers tucked into mason jars, wrapped with burlap, and tucked into the table top.
A perfect candidate for “repurposed objects.”
A vintage magazine rack from a thrift shop has been spray-painted a bright, cherry red and repurposed into a footed window box. A coconut husk liner is used as an insert to hold potted plants.
Tip: soaking coconut husk liners in a buck of water for several hours makes it much easier for “shaping” projects like this one.
