Sustainable decoration ideas

A visit to Boom Festival in Portugal does not only result in a great vacation, but also leaves us with plenty of inspiration and information about the earth, permaculture and people. In particular, there were many small ecological gardens developed on the festival terrain which provide beautiful, sustainable and useful ideas to apply on our own garden. We would like to share some with you:

Porch vaults made by rough dead wood. Also note the stonewalls.

Pretty shapes made of stones. In the back are trees decorated with colorful knitting-works.

Bamboo plant trays

More bamboo ideas!

Hanging bottled plants

This one requires a strong tree, but the result is fantastic: a swinging bed!

Autumn leafs

Pretty in pink

Somehow we have a color pallet in our garden that shifts throughout the months. These are periods in which almost only one color, next to green, predominates in flowers, leaves or fruits. This month our garden's favorite color is pink!

Echinacea purpurea;

 Pink/orange carrot;



And yes... pink beans.
