garden and wheels

Building a garden with wheels with recycled materials that you find on the street is not a easy task.  If  you want some design, the task is even harder. My solution is the ready made solution (thank you marcel duchamp). The shopping cart. In spain called carro de compras fullfills this purpose perfectly. With dimensions of 90x35x45 cm it nearly reaches 145 Lit of volume. That is quite okey for a small home garden with wheels.  When you look at the picture, than you see that it is hardly too imagine to design something more adequate than that ready made shopping cart for our purpouse. The wheels could be bigger and the mesh smaller , but for something that you can find on the street it is quite a solid solution. Big space for the  water tanks, solid welded metal construction, handy handle to move that thing,  comes with four wheels and it fits through the entrance door. Yes i’m quite happy with my solution. :)
