It’s still too early to start planting things outside but that doesn’t mean that I can’t start planning out my garden. I am excited for this year! I am have been pinning, Googling, and researching like crazy. One idea that I really like is turning old tires into garden pots/planters.
They drain really well and are easy to make. Painting them will dress them up and make it look like someone didn’t just dump a tire in your yard. Tires are also free! This is a great way to recycle and repurpose.
Cutting them by hand is going to take some muscle no matter what method you use, thus the gloves. This one is by far the easiest; use that leverage! And be sure your knife is sharp sharp sharp.
I’ve heard that you shouldn’t grow food in them because of toxins in the tires that they were exposed to during their driving days but I don’t know if that’s true. This planter would be perfect for beautiful flowers! woohome has a terrific roundup for other DIY Garden pots. Find them here.
