Used tires are perfect planters for flowers, shrubs and miniature trees. Disposing of used tires is costly. Using them for flower beds, planters and container walls offers great recycling ideas for creative gardening. Old tires can save money on material for raised beds and add unique recycled crafts to yard decorations.
Old wooden and plastic boats, retro cars and bathtubs, especially beautiful claw foot designs, provide attractive large containers for glowing plants and flowers. With a little paint for the outside and soil inside, they can create fantastic centerpieces for artistic, unusual and eco friendly yard landscaping.
