Garden Crafts

Whimsical; Charming; Rustic...

Is your garden in need of embellishment, whimsy and rusticity? It sounds like you need some garden crafts. Everyone's interested in garden junk these days, which suits me just fine.

Recycling and refurbishing old rustic stuff, combining it in innovative ways is the latest garden trend. 

Create a unique and interesting focal point to display succulents or other plants, or just as humorous and eyecatching garden art

Your landscaping will never be the same.

How about hypertufa, that strangely addictive mixture of cement powder, peat moss and perlite?

Many hypertufa projects will add intrigue, fun and a practical way to display many hardy succulent plants like Sempervivum and Sedum.

Once you start making some of these interesting garden crafts, you’ll quickly realize the scope of this incredible material.
