Media Reviews

This adorable tool box, filled with small succulents, is from another interesting book, Garden Eco-Chic. It is for the more advanced DIY'er. It is all about reusing found objects to create decks, paths, containers, lanterns and more.

Reusing household items and found objects doesn't only reduce your carbon footprint, it makes the garden unique and contemporary. Doubters should look at Garden Eco-Chic, a cool guide by Californian designer Matthew Levesque to creating decks, paths, pergolas, lighting and containers from such rejects as old keys (rain chains), discarded windows (hurricane lamps) and used shutters (arbours). You may never throw out a has-been hosepipe again.
