Comments Off on SHIFT’s La Morena Flower Planters Give Cold Hard Concrete a Delicate Look

Concrete is generally thought of as a cold and hard industrial material, but SHIFT  is on a mission to bring to light the inherent beauty of this often misunderstood material. “La Morena” is their first attempt to give concrete new cred as a highly aesthetic, modern, and friendly component. By using wood and cement to make their  flower pot , SHIFT manages to create an honest and balanced artifact where concrete’s stony aesthetic is countered and warmed by the wood’s organic look. + SHIFT The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

What can I reuse or recycle to make a vertical garden/living wall?

Comments Off on What can I reuse or recycle to make a vertical garden/living wall?

Readers of my simple/DIY living blog The Really Good Life will already know that I’m trying to make more efficient use of the space in my garden this year – I’ve been making lots of planters and raised beds from scrap wood (including this weekend, a 3ftx3ft bed for square foot gardening from our old bathroom cupboard doors) and I’m also interested in vertical gardening – creating a living wall of salad, herbs and companion plants. I’ve explored the various different types of wall planters/hangers that you can buy – from essentially shelves, to window boxes, fabric bags and complicated systems – but me being me, I would prefer to make them myself, ideally reusing and recycling stuff I already have stashed around the place.
