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!

Outdated Decor

Home decor need a little freshening up? Take old household accessories to the garden.

  1. Use old lamp bases as pedestals for birdbaths or planters.
  2. Give old mirrors a new life in the garden. Hang them on a fence or the side of your shed to create dimension in the backyard.
  3. Rugs a little shabby for indoors? Take them outside to warm up your patio.
  4. Have a bunch of old keys or metal trinkets in your junk drawer? Hang them with string from an old colander for a fun wind chime.

Bonus Tip: Time to define! The definition of upcycling: reusing old materials to create objects of higher quality or value than the originals.
