A garden is a thing of joy and peace for the gardener and everyone who sees it.  Gardens are as individual as those who garden them  –  some are formal, others ramble haphazardly and there is everything between!

Gardening is a pastime that can be done by anyone, regardless of their age or health conditions. It is a hobby or a craft that has existed for thousands of years. One of the major reasons for people to garden is to appreciate its beauty.

If you have multiple broken wheelbarrows that you don’t use anymore because it does not serve their purpose anymore, don’t just throw them away!

Old Pants Planter

Gardening with a twist! Thinking of how you can make use of your old pants, then consider using them as a planter, especially on a Halloween. These will not only give your plants a unique container but will also give your home a spooky vibe. Why don’t you give it a try?

Old Barrels

Throwing away used barrels is a great idea if you’re not planning on doing anything with them, but if you have the skills, a little creativity, and some patience, it’s possible to turn your old barrels into a work of art.

First, you’ll have to clean the barrel thoroughly, removing all rust and any other dirt that may have accumulated on its surface. Next, you can paint the barrel any color you like.

You can also add some stencils or designs to it, or even use it as a vase for a flower garden.

Old Bags

People don’t always think of using their old bags as a planter. You can make a planter out of an old bag by taking a plastic bag, cutting out the bottom corners to fit the size you want, and placing the plant inside.

You can use the leftover plastic to cover the top of the plant, tie it to keep it in place, and use it to water the plant.

Your imagination is the limit. More gardening ideas are found in our gallery. Check it out, enjoy and start your creating your own garden.
