Outhouse in the shaded garden

Postby sboricic » Mar 20, 2009 12:56 am

I plan on making an outhouse this summer and placing in a shaded garden that I'll want to expand and add more perennials. Here's a picture that gave me the idea from someone elses front yard. It looks like it's actually being used. LOL!

Ha! Ha! As front yard art It's a bit tacky but in the right place it would be quite amusing!

Would be OK if you had lots of space and could put it to one side. or in a place where it would come as a surprise.

The lil house is certainly unusual.

You definitely would not want to have a working outhouse in a garden that produces food for human consumption. (The bacteria that lives in a human intestine is BAD when eaten. Cow manure, chicken manure, etc. doesn't have the same concern. Although you still wouldn't want any of these on your food).
