5 Upcycle Garden Ideas: Creative Ideas For Spring

5 Upcycle Garden Ideas: Creative Ideas For Spring. Hello friends. How does your garden look? My back garden is so dull and boring after Winter, it’s not much fun walking into it. Especially now we are in lock down and the garden is the only place we can visit!!

5 Upcycle Garden Ideas: Creative Ideas For Spring

No flowers around and deep holes in the grass that Mollie has decided to dig for me!? No bright coloured flowers as Mollie would have chewed the heads off them. I need something pretty to look and a lots of colour.

I am planning a Spring makeover that will not break the bank and I can also use some things I already have in and up-cycle them. We love to recycle wherever possible.

I am thinking hanging baskets full of flowers, dug holes filled in and grass seeds down. Maybe a nice wooden patio area and some nice kind of canopy. Lots of mess to clear away first like a ping pong table and old bath from our blockage a few weeks ago.

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

5 Upcycle Garden Ideas: Creative Ideas For Spring:

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 up-cycle too? I know I have old wellies, wine bottles and jeans : )

Now I know what to do with my old split wellies. Plant some of my favourite roses in them. Do you have any old wellies from winter just hanging around?

3.) Wine Flower Vases:

This is a great idea to use up any wine bottles and they look so good. I have a few spare wine bottles from last week just waiting to be upcycled.

Up-cycled Jack Daniels Bottle:

I love to up-cycle, recycle and reuse old things.  Especially easy things like jars or bottles.  You can really have fun turning an old bottle into something different. Perfect for candles, flowers or something similar.

    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 🙂
