Concrete Curbside Planter

This concrete curbside planter adds a permanent garden in the narrow space between wall and curb. The potplants wedged between the end of the planter/wall and the next residence hide the void and make it difficult for neighbourhood pets/pests to make a home there.

Materials: Concrete
Location: Yanaka, Tokyo

    It’s amazing how many of these planters were actually created ‘off the cuff’ – unplanned, and using recycled materials “that were lying around”. Given time they all take on a feel of permanence and grace.
