Potholes are a problem for many cities, but perhaps artist and graphic design student Pete Dungey has discovered the solution: guerrilla asphalt gardens.

Dungey has begun covering potholes with soil and flowers, undeniably enhancing the aesthetic of weather beaten roads. And, since gorilla art is often effective at capturing the attention of passersby, guerrilla gardens may do the same. Thus, Dungey's guerrilla asphalt gardens have the potential to decrease speeding as drivers might slow down upon seeing the bright and colorful displays.
