  1. This is a wonderful post – filled with incredibly inspiring ideas! Thank you so much, not only for presenting these great ideas but also including the source so a person can search further to learn more. I love the bottle waterer (great for soaking trees!) and am crazy about the gutter-gardens. Hubby and I are planning on building a pergola off the back of the house next year and I am imagining a gutter-garden wall down one side – not unlike that great photo you’ve included. Thanks again for a terrific post. Let’s continue to do all we can to keep things out of landfills. Cheers, Gina

  2. I love pergolas and wish we had the room! I do hope you will post lots of pictures!
