The London Pothole GardnerThese garden pictures are a beautiful way to highlight the potholes on British roads. Motorists in Britain have long been frustrated with the ever increasing potholes that appear causing damage to their cars.
One minute you are cruising along contentedly in you’re beautiful expensive car, you’re pride and joy that you have worked so hard to acquire, then suddenly bang! It feels like you had become too relaxed listening to your favourite music, and the peaceful sound of your car effortlessly soaking up the miles.
You must have fallen asleep and hit a wall, at least that’s what it felt like. And now your body is on red alert. Your blood pressure soars, and with white knuckles you are now focused with grim determination. You slow down, and you're driving more carefully now, as you reflect on the damage it’s caused to your car.
With every winter potholes in Britain only seem to get worse, and the repairs don’t seem to last very long, that is, if they are ever repaired at all. Local councils appear to find it cheaper to pay out on the odd insurance claim for damage caused to tyres than to have to pay for constant repairs.
Thousands of car drivers all over the UK are having the lives of their car tyres and suspension needlessly shortened.
Well now a student from London has come up with a brilliant idea to highlight the problem. Steve Wheen Has started a blog where you can follow his Pothole Gardner Project, where he transforms ugly, unattended eyesores, into beautiful miniature gardens.
He say’s it’s “Part art project, part labour of love, part experiment, part mission to highlight how shit east London roads are – the pictures and gardens are supposed to put smiles on peoples faces and alert them to potholes!” What an ingenious way to do it!
