Shit Gardens

James Hull, Bede Brennan


A celebration, not a condemnation, Shit Gardens features over one hundred photographs of horticulturally challenged yards and gardens found around the world. From aspirational topiary displays to interesting Astroturf choices, from fascinating water features to baffling arrays of statuary, these uniquely enthusiastic missteps reveal the zeal and passion with which home gardeners lovingly design their personal landscape masterpieces.

  • Grand ambition? Arcane aesthetics? Bizarre beauty? Cool gift? Or pure shit? It’s all in the eye of the beholder.
  • Gardening gifts for those with green thumbs—and those without
  • Based on the popular Instagram account @shitgardens, from James Hull and Bede Brennan

Creator Bio

Bede and James have known each other since bonding over a mutual dislike of their eighth-grade mathematics teacher. Funnily enough, James is now a teacher himself, while Bede, on the other hand, is a landscape architect. Together, they are Shit Gardens.
