We all know that gardens are a wonderful way to add beauty to any urban or residential environment. Both home and public gardens create essential green spaces that help you connect with nature, provide a serene place to spend time outdoors, and, depending on what you grow, even provide food and herbs to use in your home cooking.
While we were thinking about the best ways to live as green as possible, we considered the best ways to spruce up your garden with the use of re-purposed and recycled materials. It’s a win-win situation because you’ll get to remove clutter from the home, or someone else’s home, while bringing a novel touch to your garden.
We’re excited to show you how you can use anything laying around your home and transform them into attractive looking centerpieces in your own yard. Here are some of our favorite recycled items you can use to beautify your garden.
This adorable “his and hers” set of painted barrels make a great place for color-coordinated flowers and umbrellas, and adds the cute personal touch of this gardening couple.
2. Boots on The Fence
Incorporate brightly colored rain boots into your garden by hanging them from a fence! This helps make this clever decoration even more visible and can create a little garden of its own if you have limited space to work with. Use matching pairs you’ve grown out of or that one rain boot without a mate.
3. Bottle Border
Glass bottles can be used to line pathways or flower beds to add color and decor to your garden without breaking the bank. Blue and green glass bottles work best!
4. Old Cans
Old cans make great hanging planters, either to save space or to nurture your little sprouts until they’re ready to be transplanted.
5. Antique Chair
An antique chair without a cushion makes for a great flower pot holder, and can be easily painted to match the aesthetic of your choice. Even if it isn’t sturdy enough to sit in, it can still make a lovely addition to your garden!
6. Pallet Shelving
Pallets are incredible versatile, and most businesses simply throw them out after unloading them. You can re-purpose these wooden treasures in to shelving for potted plants, or convert them into rowed planters for flowers, herbs, and more!
Old tires are usually seen as nothing but waste, but with a little paint and a creative eye, they can be transformed into colorful, stackable flower beds.
