Crack Gardens

A project by CMG Landscape Architecture in California:
“Inspired by the tenacious plants that pioneer the tiny cracks of urban landscapes, a backyard is transformed through hostile takeover of an existing concrete slab by imposing a series of “cracks”. The rows of this garden contain a lushly planted mix of herbs, vegetables, flowers, and rogue weeds retained for their aesthetic value.”
Maybe these little garden intrusions could find their ways into the back yards of homes in the Meadows, or just be an interesting way to fill pot-holes around the area.
I found this via Pruned, Alexander Trevi’s interesting blog “about landscape architecture and related fields.”
