GREEN PIECE Water your plants in style with this modern take on the classic garden tool. The watering can by Keira is ergonomically engineered and features a sleek design and non-slip handle. Made in the USA of 100-percent recyclable material, it is durable and easy to clean. Find it in two sizes and six colors at Tucson-based shopboxhill.com.

ARTFULLY FUN The creation of a simple message is at the heart of artist Stephanie Burgess’ Peace Poles. Featuring reproductions of her original designs that are printed using special fade-resistant methods, they are then laminated onto pieces of PVC, making the poles lightweight, yet durable. They come with a stake that screws into the ground, or a round base for placement on a hard surface. Available at Southwest Gardener, Phoenix, southwestgardener.com.
PATTERN PLAY Phoenix artist Pat Mahoney utilizes sustainable and reclaimed resources to create one-of-a-kind garden containers. His pieces often start out as damaged pots that he finds and reconstructs. Influenced by the colors of the Arizona desert, Mahoney created this orange-and-blue mosaic pot from recycled tiles and floor grout. His work can be found at Practical Art, Phoenix, practical-art.com.
