Potholes transformed by the pothole gardener
As motorists, nothing riles us more than a nice big pothole…
‘What does the council think it’s playing at?’ ‘I pay my taxes and I have to drive on roads like this!’ ‘Our roads are the worst in Europe!’ A good rant about the shoddy and deteriorating state of the roads is part of our birthright as British citizens.
But while the rest of us clench our fists and bristle with anger as our car wheel clangs into yet another tarmac crater, one man sees only opportunity. Steve Wheen is the pothole gardener, a green-fingered crusader who made it his mission to turn crumbling fissures in roads and pavements into tiny oases of natural beauty.
In this gallery we bring you Steve Wheen’s incredible pothole gardens. Don’t forget to tell us which one your favourite is…

But then is that what our dictatorial, self serving councils are there for.
Strange isnt it, how we make the mistake of thinking these incompetent and wasteful imbeciles are elected or employed to do our bidding. We should understand that any form of official is only there to line their pockets with self imposed extortionate wages and immoral legitimized expenses, and if we belittle them or irritate, they will prosecute with the revenge only usually encountered in the school playground.
Wot next...?? Road-edendrums....? Car-nations..? DAF - odils (think lorries)..?.......
...and why stop with flowers......Pot-at-Holes...?? Car-rotts...? ...........surely there must be more....??????
What a wonderful thing to do!!
Anything to indicate a pothole is a good thing in my eyes.
Mind you, I do suppose that councils will take the "offenders" to court for doing this.
Its a shame he dosnt actually leave the works instead of just photographing and then taking most of it away. But I guess leaving installations the middle of roads could be construed as dangerous.
The answer to repairing the ever increasing number of pot holes lies in the ever increasing number of speed humps.
Quantify the ammount of humps now calculate the ammount of raw materials used along with man power to make such ridiculous humps and thats were its all going on stupid humps that do nothing for speeding traffic as they straddle the humps thus not needing to slow down.
They just did a street round the corner from me littered with pot holes, and all they did was build speed humps an not fix the pot holes.
I watched them clear away their left overs of raw materials only to leave the street with nice new shinny speed humps and lots of old ever increasing in size pot holes it just doesn't add up the left overs would have been better used for filling holes but I bet that lot got dumped.
Priceless!! Least it makes them stand out. (for a while at least) now that the streetlights get turned off, need all the help we can get.
Think I'm going to buy my own tracking lasers and save myself some money!
