28 Recycled Garden Ideas

Everyone loves a bargain, but gardeners are an especially resourceful bunch. Reuse odds and ends (you may already have around the house) with these recycled garden ideas!

Mason Jars

Look around your storage shelves—you’ll likely find many of these handy jars.

  1. For your next picnic, fill jars with cut lemons and water and add fresh flowers for a simple, elegant centerpiece. Or put Christmas lights inside a few jars as luminarias for an evening party.
  2. Plant an indoor kitchen garden with your favorite herbs in jars attached to scraps of wood with plumber’s clamps. Mount them in a sunny spot for fresh herbs at your fingertips. Water with care as there are no drainage holes.
  3. Attach hooks on either side of your kitchen window and use wire to hang a jar from each. You’ll never have to hunt for a place to put freshly cut garden flowers again.
  4. Paint the inside of the jars with fun colors (you probably have some left over from a project) to make pretty vases.

    I don’t like the mirror idea, especially reading it in Birds and Blooms. It is bad enough with birds getting killed or injured flying into windows, but hanging mirrors outdoors is an additional hazard for them.
