A few weeks ago when I was in San Francisco with my buddies Harriet and Ryan, we visited an ultra hip urban garden situated right in the middle of downtown.
The garden itself sits in the courtyard of an old apartment building. When landscape gardeners Sean and James first moved into the building, the courtyard was riddled with trash.
Over the course of a few years, they hauled all the crack pipes and beer bottles away and turn the small concrete courtyard into something ridiculously unique and cool.
Low on money, Sean and James used found objects like old work boots, pipes, colanders and whatever else they could get their hands on as garden containers.
There is even an old prayer candle alter in the garden.
And my favorite succulents were there too.
Here is a used tired they turned into a garden small container garden. Pretty cool eh?
I wish I could have seen what the courtyard looked like before the transformation, but one thing is for sure, I am totally hooked on the idea of urban gardens.
Because everyone needs to have a little space to call their own.
Don’t you think?
