Introduction and Pictures
I recently found this forum and love all the creative up-cycling going on around here. I'd like to introduce myself with some pictures of my current projects.
I redid my patio which was in poor shape after virtually no maintenance for 50+ years with terrible weeds growing up through the cracks and cracked pavers from an oak tree planted too close to the house. I took it all up and relaid it with weed barrier and 2,000 pounds of gravel salvaged from town construction projects and 1,500 lbs of sand. Hauled it all by my tiny self in my Sportswagen. Some in progress and finished pictures. I'm going to grow moss in between the cracks and want to try the slurry method but don't have a blender. Any suggestions? At the end is my old weed garden (aka unsuccessful veggie garden). I salvaged brick from various rubble piles at the curb to build up the planter. Need to finish off the ground layer with dirt and plantings. What do you all think I should do with the other half of the old garden plot?
Then there is the fairy house my friend and I created for a fairy house festival, it's currently being displayed in an art gallery in Niagara Falls with other fairy houses from the festival. Not junk but thought you all could appreciate it. It's made with all natural materials we collected from various trips around the country (plus Gorilla glue).
Last, not one of my projects, (but that is me in the pic), a Japanese Tea House built over a gorge (inside there's a glass floor). This is built in someone's backyard! Private property but they let people hike there and have put in a lot of awesome things besides the Tea House.
Thanks for letting me share, I'm really enjoying looking at everybody's gardens here.
