Japanese Compete To See Who Can Turn The Back Of Their Truck Into The Best Garden...

Gardening is increasingly becoming a luxury for the younger generation. As more people move to small apartments in the city, having a plot of land to cultivate and play around with isn't really an option. However, as these Japanese landscapers prove, with a little creativity and imagination anything is possible!

The annual Kei Truck Garden Contest, held by the Japan Federation of Landscape Contractors, brings gardens to the people. Kei Trucks are tiny flatbed trucks that are commonly used in the construction and landscaping industries in Japan. Every year, landscapers from across the country bring their trusty vehicles together and set to work creating amazing and whimsical little gardens in the cargo hold, to see who can take the title of best mobile landscaper.

6. Hey, the whole back of a truck for a garden?

That's a huge amount of space in Japan.

Terrific gardens.
