Using Salvaged Material in the Garden

Incorporating salvaged pieces into the space produces a personal reflection of this gardener.

Finding a stack of mirrors at the Habitat Recycle Store inspired Sharon to place them in her shade garden to reflect the plantings and create an illusion of depth.

An extra-large arched piece from her long-time collecting of architectural pieces necessitated hanging outdoors. Placing it on the She Shed elevates the charm of the shed and establishes a focal point for the area.

Vintage ironwork hug the corners of the house and shed.

Sharon’s grate collection is utilized throughout her garden. Here some are being used as the pathway to the She Shed.

Six old sash windows from the recycle store are fashioned into a small greenhouse that is employed to harden off young plants in the spring.
