Carlene of Organized Clutter is the queen bee of junk gardens.
She’s never met a rusty old whatcha-ma-call-it, discarded thing-a-ma-jig or broken down what’s it that she couldn’t breathe new life into.
Follow these footsteps into the garden.

Don’t forget to follow Carlene’s cardinal rule of junk gardening: “your yard and garden should be well maintained, manicured, mowed, clipped, etc. If your yard looks overgrown and junky before you start you will not end up with a pleasing junk garden vignette, you will end up with a JUNKYARD vignette. Big difference.”
Get over to Carlene’s at Organized Clutter then get into your garden and start planting.
