Say you just happen to have a couple of extra old Magnavox and other old record player “horns” lying around. Why not transform them into planters like these? That’s what the folks at Fine Garden Art have done with them and many other reclaimed objects.
Fine Garden Art, of Bedrock Gardens in New Hampshire, creates unique, one-of-kind art for the garden. They transform found objects, everything including possibly even the kitchen sink, into garden arches, arbors, water features, abstract pieces, large and small sculptures, containers and planters.
According to Jill Nooney, the artist, and Bob Munger, the self-proclaimed problem solver, “There is an expression ‘The Garden Dies When the Gardener Dies.’ Since our combined age is 126 years, we are worried about the future of Bedrock Gardens. Our ultimate goal is to convert our garden into a public garden that would serve as a destination for people interested in its horticulture, interesting plants, hardscape, sculpture, and landscape design. We can envision it becoming a cultural center.”
Nooney and Munger’s request for a nonprofit status was denied by the IRS, which they claim has significantly slowed their plans. In the meantime, the duo are appealing to anyone interested for contributions of funds, ideas, energy, or time, to assist them in realizing their vision for Bedrock Gardens.
