I have come across a few pictures that have me thinking about how to make walls a bit more interesting. I like the idea of building stuff into your walls. Like pots to grow stuff in. Doesn’t this look nice? I love how the trim and container go so well.

Or here is an interesting idea….canned vegetables…though I fear what they would look like in 20 years – but conceptually interesting.

These are Bee Boles, the precursor to Bee Hives built into the walls at the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

The Stained Glass (ugly brick and nasty black grout not withstanding) is built into the garden walls at the Elvis Memorial Garden in Memphis to create an interesting design feature.

And one more place for inspiration…I provide a link because my words and a single picture cannot describe…Philadelphia’s Magic garden is built almost completely around the idea of using found objects to create garden walls. Check it out here.
