Reclaiming the Garden

How often do you see junk in peoples gardens? Old chairs, wooden planks and every so often an old bathtub will litter people’s lawns. Removing bulky objects can be an expensive and laborious task. Sometimes this will even build up until it becomes a bit of an eyesore, however there are plenty of ways to integrate discarded objects into your garden without even removing them.

I saw this beautiful gold painted bathtub in an old winter garden in Christchurch, New Zealand. After the earthquake countless homes were left badly damaged or destroyed completely. This affected gardens too, but nature has a great way of recovering and this particular garden has been transformed not lost. This old bathtub was painted in gold and placed in a disused glasshouse, as the plants have flourished they have almost engulfed the bathtub making it a central part of the winter garden.
