Experienced Materials: Recycled Metal Garden Accents

experienced materials recycled cans garden lights cut metal

Did you happen to notice these garden lights in the Fl!pp  garden earlier this week?  I did, and I wanted to share a bit more information about them with you.   They are the creation of Gina, a Portland, Oregon based designer who works with recycled metal.  The lights are largely made of upcycled tin cans.

While I think I may need to add some of these to my own garden, I am excited by some of her other options for garden accessories.  She also offers sconces, rain chains, mobiles and decorative screens that can be used independently or sized to be used in screen doors.  All her materials are recycled.  You can find out more and purchase through Experienced Materials.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    Those are great! Now my boyfriend has something he can use all those coffee cans he’s been collecting.
