Recycling is not only an eco-friendly gesture and a way to save good money at home. When it comes to inventing new uses for very different objects , creative ideas can be real genius, useful and decorative or simply beautify and add a note of color and originality to our balcony, terrace or garden.
In fact, gardens are spaces that invite you to enjoy the view, either in solitude, feeding mind and soul or also to share and show others how beautiful we have that small and at the same time great space that inspires us so much, full of life.

Original pots and planters
The pots conventional turn pale with envy when you take a look around and see these old suitcases, coffee pots, pans, wellies or chirucas found its place among plants up above ground and splurging joy , with flowering plants, giving a different touch, as fun as decorative. You can get really beautiful corners if we know how to combine elements, without overloading it, with style and good taste.
Furniture and sculptures
Plastic bottles are great protagonists in gardens that make use of recycled materials. Well used as seedbeds or as hanging pots, or to create a vertical garden, in which case we will need a good amount of bottles.
It is even possible to mount a hydroponic system , although for this we will need to have a minimum knowledge of hydroponics and a lot of skill, but it must be recognized that, if the result is going to be like the one in the image above, it is well worth trying to be able to have our own hydroponic garden.
Or, for example, put to DIY, glass bottles are a real mine to get small pots in which to grow without soil. The principle is the same as for hydroponic cultivation. Basically, the idea is similar to that childhood game that consisted of placing a potato or sweet potato in a glass of water, holding it with toothpicks so that the roots could access it.
Recycled pots in the garden
We will be able to make those containers or hydroponic pots by cutting the bottles in half (there are tools to do it, for safety do not try without them) and placing the plant on top, embedded with the base, from which it will suck the water through the same roots. The result is very decorative, and we can also do it with plastic bottles, although they don’t look so good.
Recycle things in the garden
Almost anything can fit in a garden (doors, furniture, bicycles, pianos and even cars on which moss, grass or climbing plants can grow precious), as long as we do it with style and being original we will achieve that decorative effect we were looking for . The difference between a vulgar recycling and another that you like, love and fall in love with is none other than that taste for details that makes a big difference.
With empty cans hung in a horizontal position we can make curious, and very useful alpisteries, but if we also paint them in colors or cover them with wrapping paper, put love by case, and hang them with ribbons or colorful scraps, the result will be spectacular. And, in the same way, with other strategically placed objects, it will be easy to build nests or shelters to attract biodiversity to our garden .
Tires in the garden
Lastly, tires are another incredible raw material for our garden. They are used to make a swing, a gigantic flowerpot and a set of them, or to give a note of color to garden furniture, for which it would also be interesting to use pallets. Again, as can be seen from the images, painting them with taste and fear does great things.
