Rustic Work

- hugely popular, Victorian style of decorative and "architectural" design in which garden features were constructed in a rustic manner or using rustic materials such as unfinished wood, bark, reeds and even moss. It also refers to items that were made to look as if they had been made using these materials, such as cast iron garden seats which looked to be woven out of wood thinnings.
