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!

Frugal Fun for Kids & Baby Gear

Little ones quickly outgrow their baby things, but gardeners give baby stuff a second chance.

  1. Paint the sides of a crib a bright color, such as coral or aqua, and lean it up against your house as a trellis. Colorful cribs can also conceal an unsightly protrusion, like an air conditioner or electrical box.
  2. With a few simple tweaks, an old changing table works wonders as a potting bench.
  3. No need for that old diaper bag? Hang it on your potting bench for a handy place to stash gloves, tools or other small items.
  4. Protect plants from frost with a crib sheet. These mini sheets are perfect for planters, raised beds or other smaller garden spots.
  5. Have your kids outgrown their sandbox? Add drainage holes to the bottom, and you’ve got a new herb planter.
  6. Going on a firefly or bug hunt? Keep critters in a mason jar with a piece of pantyhose held with a rubber band on the top so the insects can breathe.
