5 Upcycle Garden Ideas..

My back garden is so dull and boring after Winter, it’s not much fun walking into. 

No flowers around and deep holes in the grass that Mollie has decided to dig for me!?. 

I am planning a Spring makeover that won’t break the bank and I can also use some things I already have in and upcycle them. 

I am thinking hanging baskets full of flowers, dug holes filled in and grass seeds down. 

Lots of flowers down the sides of the fences and my water feature restyled. Also a new outside table.

Today I’m sharing 5 Garden Ideas from around the world that are so cool. You may have some old things around that you could upcycle too?

 I know I have old wellies, wine bottles and jeans : )

1.) The flower pot men. How cool are these two? Great idea if you have a lot of flower pot around.

2.) Now I know what to do with my old split wellies. Plant some of my favourite roses in them.

3.) This is a great idea to use up any wine bottles and they look so good.

4.) Turn an old wheelbarrow into a planter, great idea!

5.) Love this idea for your old jeans!!

What do you think?

Fancy trying any of these out?

    I have planted up wellies in the past but find the bigger they are the more often they fall over. Any suggestions how to stop this?

      Whoo I wonder if popping a 1 litre or 2 litre pop bottle inside weighted down would help? or as Margaret said a support stick? stuck through the ground? I am going to try mine in about 4 weeks. I want to paint my kitchen before I start on the garden 🙂
