The Conscious Garden

Shipping Container Gardens

Inspired by a trip to Finland, this is a simple, low-maintenance garden created for someone living in a small rented home. The garden design is influenced by the popularity of reclaiming and recycling materials and has a brief to be wildlife friendly, sustainable, functional and affordable.

The garden has a calming atmosphere created by the the subtle sounds of water and the movement of grasses. The shipping container features a green roof, while the garden has permeable gravel, a private space to sit and planting that makes use of the boundaries.
