"Non-Conventional" SFG Box Materials and Design

Post  acara on 10/10/2010, 8:13 am

Just some of my late night musings .....

Not that these are practical or affordable, but they stimulate my thought process for designing my next SFG box ...

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v102/acara/Hosted%20stuff/SFG%20Gardening/Non-Conventional%20SFG%20Design/?albumview=slideshow

A couple of notables;


This is kinda cool .... got me thinking about how handy a concentric-removable square, or row, in the SFG box would be. the heavy duty wheels are a bonus-feature Wink



Kinda neat from a pre-fabbed perspective;



Stone;



Neat design (all the watering cans are fed off a single hose);



Heck .... why stop with the box ... they'll do a whole garden for ya (and ship it);



I think I'm getting this one for Boffer this Christmas ...LOL


...and I'm getting this one for Shoda so that she can defend her garden from the rats !!!;

I drove by a house the other day with a free dresser/bureau out front. I was going to stop by on the way back and pick it up but it was already gone. i wanted the drawers for garden boxes.

What a great way to keep stuff like that out of the landfill!! You can pick up plenty of those at Habitat for Humanity Restore for fairly cheap and in lots of different colours. Wonder how your HOA people would take to one of those in your yard? affraid Your a creative kind of guy....you could rig up a fountain in the bowl.

Personally, I think you should do it for an April Fool's Day joke. Twisted Evil
