Shopper’s Diary: Garden Objects in New Zealand

We’ve long admired New Zealand-based designer Katie Lockhart’s carefully curated home accessories shop Everyday Needs, so we were happy to hear that her brother Jared has launched Garden Objects, a new online garden wares store. “The focus of Garden Objects is to offer products that are designed well, have good functionality, and will stand the test of time,” says Jared Lockhart. 

Here are a few of our favorites from his new shop:


Above: A Timber Rake ($185 NZD) is handmade from four kinds of locally sourced wood in Oamaru, New Zealand: the handle is poplar, the bow is coppiced hazel, the head is ash, and the tines are heart Kowhai (a strong wood favored since the 19th century by New Zealand rake makers).
