This is a fantastic example of upcycling, and a handy space-saver too. Leaning up against your fence, this herb garden has very little in the way of a footprint and allows you to plant pretty impressive amounts of herbs. A very resourceful idea.

Corner Decking Wooden Planter

Another great use of space for your garden. A decking planter uses the corner spaces of your lawn or flowerbed and its multi-level design is fantastic for mixing up your space’s aesthetics. It can be a durable, useful and well-made item.

Its sleek, stylish design is unobtrusive, but there’s plenty of space to relax inside too. Use it for everything from kids’ sleepovers to year-round garden shed DIY; its electricity function means that anything’s possible!

Bronze Hippos

Onto the more ‘weird’ end of the weird and wonderful title now, and what a fantastic example it is. These beautifully rendered bronze resin hippos are the perfect addition to any turf and will make for a subtle but surprising complement to a flowerbed. They look part-submerged in water, which adds a great sense of realism to the design.
