Skipping To The Next Level; Skip Gardening

Over the past few months and years, skip hire in London has been used for a wide range of incredible experiments and out of the ordinary uses. From skips which have been used as the basis for artistic pieces, to models which have even been turned into swimming pools, there seems to be no end to the innovative uses that intelligent Londoners can find for skips.

Aside from being the most practical method of removing waste and transporting it from your front garden to the recycling centre or the local landfill, skips have also been turned into fantastic and completely portable garden environments.

Skip Gardening With Skip Gardens

The fantastic idea was created by Global Generation, and was designed as a response to the fact that less than a quarter of people in London, only 14%, are able to grow their own vegetables, whilst most people buy straight from the supermarket. The logic response was to create portable gardening containers for green-fingered Londoners to enjoy!

There has been a growing concern that most inner-city dwellers have no idea how to grow their own food, or even have any idea how to approach nature with a hands-on attitude and so the idea of skip hire in London for gardening purposes was the obvious response. The greatest advantage that these self-contained gardens have is that they are completely portable. These skips can, hypothetically, be loaded onto any skip mover’s truck or wagon and bring tasty, fresh garden fruits to homes all across London.

These gardens are pretty much independent, although they do require a little bit of gardening know-how from the garden’s manager. This idea has been lauded all across London, as it provides people who might otherwise have no way to gain any kind of gardening experience with a practical and hands-on opportunity to explore their own green-fingered abilities. The project itself makes most of its money through the selling of the resulting vegetables and fruits to local restaurants, which works to make the entire project completely self-sufficient.
