ReadyMade Garden Challenge Answered
Our friends at ReadyMade are holding their second annual Garden Challenge. If you're into gardening, reuse, or reclaiming space on a small budget (sound like anyone here?), this should be right up your alley.
Here's the info:
ReadyMade is looking for contenders for its Second Annual Garden Challenge. Winners will have their outdoor space published next spring and will vie for yet-to-be-determined-but-amazing prizes.
Here are the parameters:
1. ReadyMade gives you $300
2. You take that loot and transform your outdoor space (whether it be an actual garden, a stoop, a rooftop, or even a window box) in an innovative way. The transformation can include any of the following: creative landscaping, outdoor furniture/firepits/fountains, edible gardens, and so forth.
Bonus points go to those who incorporate:
-water catchments or grey water systems
3. You send in photos of your work by Sept 1. Our panel of judges selects winners, then we send out a photographer to shoot the garden by end of September.
To submit ideas, take a "before" shot of the garden/stoop/roof/sill you plan to redo, and draw up a sketch or list of projects/plantings you plan to implement and email the lot by August 1st, 2008 to: shana (at) readymademag.com. You'll then have one month to perform your magic.
Attached is an example of a winning entry from our first garden challenge. Derek's submission of backyard camping projects was so good, we hired him.
