Junk beau­ti­ful ideas

Ontario Gardener Magazine - - LO­CAL DIRT - By To­nia Mof­fat

Be­fore you throw that old teapot in the garbage or take that bro­ken bike or dresser to the dump why not put it in the gar­den? Up­cy­cling and re­pur­pos­ing items in the gar­den may not be every­one’s thing, but if it suits your gar­den style you can add in­ter­est­ing fea­tures by di­vert­ing items from the land­fill. There are so many cre­ative things you can sal­vage and place in the gar­den. Here are some fab­u­lous ideas our read­ers have done, we hope they give you some ideas to up­cy­cle.

If you have a great idea or have some up­cy­cled beau­ti­ful junk in your gar­den, send us a photo. Email tania@pe­ga­sus­pub­li­ca­tions.net.

Old gar­den im­ple­ments add a rus­tic look to this fence.
