If you’re bored of growing your plants in standard planters and garden beds, but can’t seem to figure out what to do, we’ve got you covered. You can upcycle basically anything you have into a secret garden worthy structure. Don’t have anything you’re willing to part with? Hit up a flea market with an open mind and you’ll be sure to go home with something eye popping. From bathtubs to cupcake tins, you can grow any size garden you want! Check out some of our favorite ways to introduce personality into gardening!
Abandoned tires can be viewed as eyesores, but not if you flip them into a sturdy, industrial planter! The contrast of rugged vs. floral will add a pleasant vibe if your outdoor space is lacking in character. Either leave them flat on the floor, stack them, or hang them—either way they’ll look super cool!
These are seriously cool. I don’t know many people that just happen to have a spare bathtub readily available—but if you do, then this is a cool project to attempt. Don’t have a vintage tub? Hit the streets or flea markets in search for the perfect one. You’ll be able to fit a full garden thanks to the size of these bathroom fixtures.
Planting flowers in bicycle baskets is just so whimsical! Even when the plants become overgrown it just adds to the beauty even more. An unused bike leaning against a shed with flowers growing all over it seems like the perfect addition to any backyard.
While the tires, bathtubs and bike baskets are all popular choices—there are tons of other cool ways to plant things both inside and out! Try this out with a simple household item and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how cute your yard will look for the warm weather seasons!
