The Container Container Blog is all about Shipping Containers, their uses and container sales in the UK.
Our Blog is written from the perspective of a 'Professional Shipping Container Sales' company owner.
We supplied a 20ft new shipping container to a primary school based in Darlington, Co Durham back in August 2013.
We were very impressed to see what they have since done with the container. In short, the students have built a living wall (an alternative garden) hanging from the shipping container side walls formed from old wooden pallets, that have been partially stripped down. The pallets were fixed to the container using wire rope and clamps to avoid drilling through the container side walls.
Once the pallets were in place, over 200 plants were donated to the project that have since started to fill out the pallets and coming into bloom, as can be seen from the photographs.
Students have been keen to see the transformation and results from their work and been captivated by the whole project.
The project has won the “Best Alternative Garden” category at last year’s Darlington in Bloom competition.
Another interesting & creative project formed from one of our shipping containers!
