    This Instagram Account Celebrates Ugly Gardens In All Their Horrible Glory

    A person’s garden, lawn, and yard are their pride and joy. No matter how horrendously bizarre, ugly, eccentric, and eldritch it might look! There’s a certain beauty in ugliness and we shouldn’t be shy about sharing it with the world. And if our neighbors get mad, well that’s when you show them this captivating Instagram account that features weird and ugly gardens in all their decadent glory.

    Created by English and history teacher James Hull and landscape architect Bede Brennan, the Instagram project has already amassed a whopping 124k followers and continues to grow. Much like the weeds digging their roots ever-deeper in some of these lawns.

    Have a look at the very worst gardens below, upvote the ones that are so bad they’re starting to seem quite nice, and let us know which of these dystopian nightmares you loved hating the most.

    The entire project is meant as a celebration, not a condemnation of “horticulturally challenged yards and gardens” from all over the globe. And while this ugliness certainly is appealing (if you gaze long enough into the abyss, it’ll start gazing into you as well), it’s also bound to make at least some of you Pandas want to get your lawnmower and pressure washer.

    Some of the garden design choices are truly baffling. There’s an overwhelming number of decorations that shouldn’t ever have left the shop (or factory if we’re truly honest) to begin with.

    He reiterated that the goal of the account isn’t to make fun of anyone but to celebrate how much these gardens “enrich and liven up our suburbs.” The goal? To help fight boredom. Imagine how boring life would be if you didn’t have some contrast and clashing aesthetics once in a while. Peaceful suburban life? Yuck! Give us weirdness and ugliness. And don’t forget the garden gnomes!
