Hanging Gutter Garden

Don’t you love it when you see an awesome project or garden idea that’s so simple it’s brilliant? Look at this garden in a gutter–it’s been on various sites, but done by Jayme Jenkins from aHa! Home and Garden and then highlighted on the uber-cool  Apartment Therapy site.

This project is perfect for someone who has limited space, wants to try something a little different or who loves industrial materials. I happen to have all three. Maybe I can fly Jayme down to Texas for a little DIY weekend? I’ll lure her with my charming company. Probably some beer would help.

Check out the materials list and detailed plans on Jayme’s site. This project was also featured in “Garden Up! Smart Vertical Gardening for Small and Large Spaces” by Rebecca Sweet and Susan Morrison (Cool Springs Press).
