Here’s your invitation to include all sorts of found objects in your garden to create a space reflecting your individual style. Old telephone poles, humorous signs, rusted wheelbarrows, surprising sculptures, preloved kitchenware and a myriad of other salvaged materials and containers can create a lighthearted atmosphere. Wander through Krackatinni, a garden without rules. Filled with rambling plants and recycled ornaments, it’s a landscape with distinct personality.
Just because something's old or broken doesn't mean you should throw it out. If you can't fix it or make it new again, repurpose it in a creative way by giving it a new home, decorating your backyard! The options are endless...
Put up a birdhouse and let nature appreciate your handiwork.
Fill a wonderful hanging basket with Acalypha hispida.

Metallic flowers add to the mix among real foliage.
Think creatively for your tea table – this is a phone pole topped with a bin lid!
Seek out rustic ornaments, like this old gate, to 'up' the decorative value.

Got a water feature or fish pond? Chuck in an old statue and leave the water and moss do the rest.
