    I love the thing, but it kinda sticks out like a sore thumb. Has anyone found a way to work it in to a cohesive decor theme?

    I don't know about cohesive (cause I suck at decorating), but this is what my wife has done with them so far:

    Ok, Admittedly I don't have one to play with or a house I can mess with. But the first thought that comes to mind is to drop them into the floor... sacrifice the floor below or part of it... hide something down there maybe? *Shrugs* I realize that won't work for everyone but for the true deco enthusiasts it might be ok... but I would think that you should be able to drop them into the floor looks like 5 but could be a 10 sometimes this new art is bigger then it should be...

    and make the top of the beds flush with the ground =) no more bed just planting space although I dono if you can walk on it either... at that rate like I said no where to test...

    I placed mine in the center of an area and placed plants like campions and poppies around it.

    Thanks for the ideas, guys! I just got my garden bed and am pleased to see that it's got different size options and can be re-sized at will (I was worried I'd have to pick one size and stick to it!) but will have to redecorate a bit to fit it in... I think it's time for a new home design anyway, right? :thumbup:

    Has anyone tried stacking them with gozas etc to get a multi-level bed going? If so, can you still use all the spaces in the lower bed? :eyes: I may have to purchase another one...

    Ha, clever use, but almost hidden. Is it for deco only or you can still use it under the trees?
