Creative Reuse at a PHS Pop-up Garden!

Creative Reuse at a PHS Pop-up Garden!

The re salutes the PHS Pop Up garden newly open on East Passyunk (9th & Wharton Streets), which has a design theme of “Reclaimed, Repurposed and Recycled.”  We love what PHS’s Associate Director of Landscape, Leigh Ann Campbell, had to say in a recent PHS blog post: “the biggest takeaway for attendees are the many  ideas they can incorporate into their home garden.” Leigh Ann insists “almost anything is salvageable when the outcome is reuse.”  So true! The garden features toy dinosaurs and old records in fun table centerpieces and planters, display materials saved from the Philadelphia Flower Show, and a sculpture made from bicycle parts.  Head over to the outdoor bar and you’ll find it clad in faux pressed tin that Leigh Ann got from us! The vacuform panels came from Theater Exile, where they had been previously used in the ceiling of a set.  They look fantastic incorporated into the bar.  Head over there and check it out!

Theater Exile donated 60 linear feet of this vacuform faux pressed tin paneling (pictured here in the store), just the amount needed to cover the length of the bar!

The panels were mounted on sheets of reclaimed OSB, also from the re!

Looks like a pretty great place to hang out on a nice summer evening, huh? Wanna meet us there for a beer?
