Do you know how many items you have in your home that you thought you had no use for
and were planning to throw away at some point?
You should hit the stop button on that plan as many of them can actually be repurposed
into something useful and something that will stop you from wasting away a plentitude of
useful items that can add to
the environmentally-friendly atmosphere of your home even more than reliable gardening.
You and the environment will win with less waste, more green and natural surroundings,
as well as more aesthetic and inner satisfaction, once you successfully save items from
from the landfill, repurpose them and add them to your surroundings.
Just go to your garage, attic, or cellar and look around.
What do you see?
“Don’t add things to the landfill,
add them to your garden and enjoy
them along with the fresh air and
greener environment you create.”
1. Old Crates
The last thing you should do is throw away a bunch of perfectly fine crates that will be
useful in a number of ways.
At the very least you can arrange a few in your garage, add rubbish bags and make
them into recycle bins.
You can nail a few together to make a shelf stand and place it somewhere in your
house where you can place flower pots to enrich your home’s oxygen and improve
the quality of life and air.
Or you can use them as the pots by simply filling them with soil and arranging them
around your doors or under the windows.
Crates can even be transformed into a coffee table if you have enough and are handy
enough to do it, so save yourself the price of a coffee table and the CO2 that the delivery
guys will bring to your home with just a little imagination.
Pallets are not only useful for moving things around.
They can be just as useful as crates, if not even better.
You can do so much with them – from taking their planks off and using them for a different
project that requires wood, to encasing them and filling them with soil to make a small garden.
And how about putting them upright a wall and creating a wall garden!
Pallets are amongst the few items that actually allows you to create a perfectly viable
and proper wall garden that will make garden maintenance and weed control that much
easier as you don’t even have to bend and dig into the ground. http://gardenerspimlico.org.uk/
3. Buckets and Pots
You probably have plenty of those around the house and in the attic and cellar.
As life goes on, their number somehow only increases and at one point you might
start throwing them away.
They can be used just as everything else.
With the right soil and the right seeds for planting, buckets and pots can become
excellent planting pots.
You can use them as decorations around the house, or in the garden, or they can
even be made into hanging planters!
Find a proper place and hang them up.
Make lawn care that much easier when all your flowers are up above and all you
have to do for the lawn is garden clearance.
Or you can divide the garden vertically in a vegetable garden on the ground and
a hanging garden from above.
That is a double dose of garden brilliance right there.
“Don’t throw away everything
you find no immediate use for.”
So don’t throw away everything you find no immediate use for.
You have plenty of things that can easily be made into something useful and something
to enrich your home on different levels.
Don’t add things to the landfill, add them to your garden and enjoy them along with the
fresh air and greener environment you create.
Have you repurposed pallets, crates, buckets and pots?
What did you transform them into?
