Last weekend, I made a quick visit to Hampshire to view a friend's ongoing garden project, and I was struck by her clever recycling initiative: the adaptive reuse of feeding troughs as planters for flowers, herbs, and vegetables. To recreate the look, consider the sources listed below. Above: Vintage metal water tanks and troughs as decorative planters. Above: An animal water trough repurposed as a kitchen herb garden. Above: Vintage Troughs (used for a single season) are £50 through Friday Ad. Above: Standard Water Troughs in a variety of lengths are available from McVeigh Parker in the UK. Above: For a similar galvanized tank, go to Freeland Industries , a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of heavy-duty galvanized steel tanks for the farm, garden, and home.
