Deborah Nagan: How green is your garden?

Deborah Nagan’s latest shed-based work (we've covered her previously here) is called 'How Green is your Garden?' and has been on display at at Canada Blooms, the country’s largest flower expo. Deborah's installation includes five sheds (complete with individual garden areas) and aims to examine how we think about our gardens and their impact on the environment in terms of chemicals, pesticides and general rubbish. Here's what she says about it:
This is a hybrid of my garden for the Metis International Festival held in Quebec in the summer  each year and questions the so-called sustainability of domestic gardens.  The only plants are white tulips wrapped in paper with messages left by visitors to the garden in Metis – otherwist, visitors will have to make sense of charcoal, salt, blue tape, glass.
This garden was put together with the assistance of Landscape Ontario and sponsored by Le Groupe Germain.
Tuesday posts are sponsored by The Home Office Company, manufacturers of unique garden rooms since 1998. Now in 10 exciting new colours. Click here for more details.

  1. Haha, you have just exposed this poor persons "very accessible to burglars" glass shed, where all her expensive computer systems are stored.

    I would get some locks sharpish!
