Minimalist Garden Products with a Mission
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
We've been spending a lot of time in Australia this past week (at least in our minds), which makes us think about water conservation, which reminds of the best-looking rainwater collectors we've seen anywhere. Founded by a group of architects and industrial designers, Philadelphia-based Shift Design focuses on "environmentally attuned products for the garden that are aesthetically modern and tailored to work as modular systems," including planters, firepits, and window boxes; we especially like the company's rainwater-collecting solutions, which are as stylish (and lifetime-lasting) as they are practical. Above: A modular system includes the Buttonwood Wood Slat System (contact Shift directly for ordering information) and the Fitzwater Raintank ($1,800) and Pennsgrove Planter ($910); both available at Horne. Above: For information on the new Wylie Hose Reel , go to Shift. Above: The Pennsgrove Planter is $910 at Horne. Above: The Wallace Wall-Mounted Rain Tank is $550. Above: Cedar Herb Garden ; $150 at Horne. Above: The Fairmount Green Roof Tile ; contact Shift for more information. Above: Edgley Window Box ; $120 at Horne. N.B.
