The Daily Mail of London reported that Steve Wheen, 33, an so-called urban guerrilla-gardener, has decided to take on London’s potholes by turning them into miniature gardens.
Instead of being fed-up with the state of the roads near his home in east London, Mr Wheen, originally from Australia, decided to decorate these otherwise unloved urban spaces with plants.
One of his creations includes a mini-London Eye, which he planted outside the Ministry of Defence building in the heart of Government in central London.
‘My favourite garden is a re-creation of the London eye with ivy and daffodils,’ he said.
‘I try and choose public locations with plenty of walk-past traffic, so as many people see my gardens as possible before they get destroyed, stolen or runover.
We applaud Steve’s efforts but filling those potholes with US Cold Patch would be a more permanent solution.
