[Infographic] How to create your urban garden?
Every day we throw away many items, because they are broken or because they are no longer fit for purpose. What a waste! Yet, with a little imagination and creativity you can recycle some items and give them a new life. For example, there are tons of DIY decorations that can be created to give your garden a touch of elegance and originality.
If you’re in the mood for some small DIY projects and have some objects that are ready to be thrown away or that you just would not want to waste, here are some funny and original ideas for you to try.
Bottles are probably one of the most used, wasted and thrown away items ever. There are countless funny and original decorations that can be created with glass and plastic bottles. For example, they can be hung outdoors or positioned on the ground, halved or whole, and used as small vases for flowers!
With a little effort (and being careful not to accidentally hurt yourself!) you can cut an opening in some old oil cans and create beautiful and spacious houses for birds, to be filled with seeds and hung onto the trees in your garden!
Sometimes, after some work has been done in the home or after some special purchases, you may happen to have excess wood pallets to throw away. Well, do not do it! Clean them up and hang them outside of your home to have a wonderful vertical garden where you can hang lights, lanterns and small pots with plants and flowers.
With creative recycling and the art of DIY you can build some beautiful and spacious flowerpots from recycled car tyres. Planters made from tyres can be perfect furnishings for outdoor spaces, they can enrich terraces and gardens as containers for flowering plants and why not…even vegetables.
Dustbins and other old waste containers… do not discard them! Re-paint them with some imagination (you can for example enhance them with cute characters or animals) and create beautiful and spacious planters!
