What was once a mandatory became a hobby and is now a luxury. That is what ‘Gardening’ has now come down to. With the growing population and shrinking homes, gardening has taken a backseat in most of the households.
But trust the Japanese to challenge any problem around the world and give it a solution. So when it came to gardening, Japanese people decided to use a little imagination and let their creativity flourish on the truck backs.
Japan Federation of Landscape Contractors kick-started annual rituals of annual ‘Kei Truck Garden’ contest. Kei Trucks are small trucks with a flatbed that are usually used in construction and landscaping industries. During the festival, the landscapers get together and decorate the back of their trucks with creepers, shrubs and even trees. The trucks look a lovely combination of natural and man-made, thanks to the pretty lights and water features.
So, the next time you think gardening takes up too much space, take some inspiration from our Japanese folks and DIY that little pop-up garden you always wanted to.
