Used and Found Stuff in Your Garden

I like looking for new landscape ideas, and I especially like those that incorporate used or found stuff.  You know, the stuff that’s laying around waiting for a spot at the landfill?  Yeah, that stuff.

Nice thing is…our natural desert gardens lend themselves really well to found stuff.  Now, I’m bred from good farm stock so it took me just a minute to figure out that this is an old track from a tractor…turned sideways into a planter.  There are two of them in front of MDI Rock in North Phoenix, as well as some smaller track around their decomposed granite beds.

But you don’t have to drive all the way out to North Phoenix to find inspiration…unless, of course, you live out that way.  The extraordinary lives in the ordinary.  All I did was run a simple errand, and I now have a freakin’ cool idea locked into my brain…just waiting…
