Plastic Pink Elephant Lawn Ornaments are All the Rage

Plastic pink elephants

At this year’s 2011 Philadelphia International Flower Show, Plastics Make it Possible® partnered with landscape designer Michael Petrie of Michael Petrie’s Handmade Gardens to create an urban garden showcasing beautiful and innovative garden essentials made with plastics and recycled plastics that can be used to create your own outdoor living space. Michael turned the display into a whimsical garden exhibit by adorning four large trees with “blooms” made from bright pink plastic elephant watering cans!

Michael sells the elephant watering cans at his two-acre retail plant nursery, garden shop and landscape design business in Chester County, Pennsylvania. For more information visit Handmade Gardens and check out our “Plastics in the Garden” Sweepstakes for an opportunity to win your own pink elephant as well as a complete outdoor dining set and garden furniture made from recycled milk jugs worth nearly $3,000!
