Skip Diving

Yesterday I discovered just how fun skip diving can be. Ive always loved a freebie and used to enjoy taking home the plants, from the garden centre, that where going to be thrown out and bringing them back from the brink.Since leaving that job I havent had the oppurtunity to go looking for unwanted goodies until yesterday.Ive made some great conections at my local garden centre and was allowed to route through their discarded bits. All these things are completely useless to them but like little bits of treasure to me.A little paint and they will be good as new.

Why this Garden Works


Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
