Potholes Turned into Miniature Flowerbeds in London
Potholes are a type of disruption in the surface of a roadway where a portion of the road material has broken away (usually because or fatigue). Gardener Steve Wheen has found a beautiful and unique way to turn these potholes into something attractive by creating miniature flowerbeds. He has transformed 150 of London’s potholes so far. The smallest being just one-inch-square.
Steve has been doing this for three years, mainly around the streets of London. His gardens are made with some compost and whichever flowers or he chooses to plant – usually costing between five and ten pounds each from his local garden centre.
“I really enjoy the reactions of people who come across my work. London can be so grey, especially at this time of year. When I was thinking about how to brighten up London, garden came to min.”
