It's fantastic if you can put the time and energy into growing your own garden, and wouldn't it be nice to know that this lifestyle has been established in a green way? The Living Pots concept proposes a way to build planters out of scrap materials so that plastic is avoided and no additional trees are cut down unnecessarily.
For DesignNobis, Dr. Hakan Gürsu suggests the use of 100% recycled timber and metal from industrial wood processing operations. The rounded bark offcuts that come from the outside of logs can be effectively assembled into window boxes.
With steel or aluminum ends, the Living Pots can be used to dress up domestic sills or be stacked into larger herb garden arrangements. Their natural compositions also help promote the passage of moisture to accommodate a broader range of crops, like mushrooms.
