Ideas For Repurposed Containers In Your Garden

Truth be told, one persons junk is another one’s treasure and nothing exemplifies this more than something called repurposing. Basically it’s the use of old or discarded, and possibly lightly damaged items that can’t be used in their normal way anymore, and using them for, well, another purpose.

Using repurposed items has grown tremendously in recent years. It may not be all that new, but it’s certainly become extremely popular. And why not. It’s a great form of recycling, and beautifying at the same time. It’s a win-win in our book.

We came across a very nice display of repurposing ideas for garden containers and you can use these as a model for sprucing up your garden areas or just look them over for some inspiration. With repurposed stuff you just never know what you’ll come up with.

In the examples you’ll see the use of old chairs, wagons, used tires, stock tanks, and more.

Enjoy this exploration into repurposing and more importantly be sure to try a few projects yourself.
