Recycling & Re-Purposing In the Garden Part 2: Garden Structures

We currently have a hidden junky area of our yard with tons of items that are on landfill death row.  The previous owners left a lot of items behind when they left, and we have strangely found uses for quite a few things. We are hoping to find uses for as many of the items in the junk pile as possible…hopefully we will get some more creative ideas for the rest of the items. 🙂

Recycling & Re-Purposing In the Garden Part 1: Garden Decor

We love finding new uses for every day items around our house.  Lately, our recycle bin is the only one of our three trash cans that regularly gets filled up.  I have found new uses for everything that I used to throw in the green bin (full post coming soon!), and there is no need to throw away “trash” if you can find a new use for it!

All of the items pictured may have been otherwise seen as trash, but with a little inventiveness, it has all become part of our charming garden decor. 🙂  I hope this inspires you to think of some creative ways to repurpose some “trash”.  Part 2 coming soon!
