“It’s becoming trendy to recycle, upcycle, and repurpose materials from your existing home or garden. On each of my projects, I always upcycle at least one item. This ranges from reusing aged, extinct brick to turning an indoor mirror into an outdoor mirror. I feel like part of having a hip garden is being kind to the environment, not wasting water, and recycling where you can. I’m also finding more solar-powered lanterns that you can hang from trees, which I think is such a great affordable fix.” —Kate Anne Riemer of Kate Anne Designs in Los Angeles
