Pothole Gardens

Graphic design student, Pete Dungey, created Pothole Gardens as part of an ongoing series of public installations trying to bring attention to the problem of surface imperfections on Britain's roads.  He fills the potholes with dirt, and plant flowers in the middle.  Pete illustrates the scope of the poor repair of Britain's roadways by says "If we planted one of those in every hole, it would be like a forest in  the road."

I'm not sure this is the best (or safest) solution to potholes, but I appreciate the sentiment and the idea of using street art (literally in this case) to turn a negative into a positive.
