The garden was designed using reused materials and gained a considerable amount of attention and praise at the Ellerslie Flower Show in Christchurch, New Zealand.

It shows that reuse and salvage can be applied to landscape design as well as in the interiors. This garden is innovative and beautiful, allowing the public to gather great ideas for their own homes.
