Minimalist Garden Products with a Mission

June 1, 2012

We’ve been spending a lot of time in Australia this past week (at least in our minds), which makes us think about water conservation, which reminds of the best-looking rainwater collectors we’ve seen anywhere.

Founded by a group of architects and industrial designers, Philadelphia-based Shift Design focuses on “environmentally attuned products for the garden that are aesthetically modern and tailored to work as modular systems,” including planters, firepits, and window boxes; we especially like the company’s rainwater-collecting solutions, which are as stylish (and lifetime-lasting) as they are practical.

Above: A Fitzwater Raintank ($899) and Pennsgrove Planter ($799; both available at Shift Design.

Above: The Wylie Hose Reel is $59 at Shift.

Above: The Pennsgrove Planter is $799.

Above: Cedar Herb Garden; $89.

Above: The Fairmount Green Roof Tile; $149.

Above: Edgley Window Box; $109.
