• A Wondrous Wasteland

    wiggly tin shed One of my top gardens at this year’s show is Kate Gould’s garden with its inspired use of recycled materials. Flattened washing machine drums wrought into a wall panel, a deconstructed shopping trolley and bed springs used as screens, corrugated iron fences, and bits of boiler pipe used as  bench supports.  It’s not romantic or rustic, but it is really inspiring to see recycled materials used in such a well-crafted manner. plants could grow through these old bed springs climbers could grow up this deconstructed trolley an old pipe supports a garden bench wiggly tin contrasts with soft paper bark this combination of green and grey works really well
