Trash to treasure. Some people might throw away the best items ever created for garden beds, but not me. I’ve always loved creative gardens, but this video has really inspired me to think of what else I could add to my yard. This video I just found uses everything from old dressers to bathtubs or my personal new favorite, bicycles. If you need some awesome inspiration before you set out to do some planting, you should definitely check this out. Mostly free planters from old junk, pretty cool.
Summer is almost here so you need to start thinking how to upgrade your garden and backyard decor. There are many things you can do to improve the looks of them.
So you have the plants picked out, the hardscape in place, and even some evening lighting, but you still feel something is missing from your garden. Chances are, it’s a little bit of character!
You don’t need to spend a lot of money on them, but at the same time you can have wonderful decorations that will give your garden a completely different look. They are inexpensive and simple, especially if you get creative with some of the old stuff you have.
The garden is meant to be a soothing place, but we must never forget, it’s also about affirming life. And what is life without something pleasing to the eye? You can add some enormous interest to your garden to take away the boring blahs, and to make your garden a place people want to come back to.
Take a look at this incredible video, by Grig Stamate, with all of these fabulous ideas for using old stuff for planters…they’re amazing! Add pretty much any flowers or plants you can think of to the mix, the more varied, the better. Happy gardening!
