Salvaging items for the garden
Another common theme in many Denman gardens is the creative use of cast-off items. This isn't just a budget-driven trend—it reflects the culture of the island, which was practicing "simple living" long before anyone talked about such things, and supports a thriving free store where residents can “shop” for used items without opening their wallets.
