DIY: Urban Garden Planters

urban plant modulesI love coming across ideas that inspire new ideas.   These urban garden plant modules made simply from hoses, fiber-cloth and fertilized soil – and hooked up to downspouts – seem to me to have all the potential loop-de-loop design interest of a hose laid with flourish (and in my book – that is a lot).
