One of my 3 yr olds Butterfly Gardens. We used old dryer drums that were being scrapped. They hold a lot of clothes & a lot of dirt!
Sinks we decided not to use for our masterbath that I had bought a year ago at a Habit for Humanity Resale store got a new life this weekend.
My 5 yr old son wanted a Transportation Garden, so thanks to my Father In Laws plenty of used tires, we made him happy! Hope to get some of his beat up dump trucks to add to this, maybe! They would make great planters.

New member & first time posting! Kids & I wanted to start planting around the yard. All we have is sand in our parts so containers are a must. New ones are so $$$, so we went through the house & my father in laws junk pile and came up with these. Tires are nothing new, my son didn't want us to turn them inside out & cut them to look like flowers, he wanted a transportation garden, so he wanted the tires just as they are! I am soon going to have an old cast iron tub to turn into a veggie garden & putting together a scrapped cabinet & lattice to make a much needed potting area. We are having fun!

My husband is proud of the dryer drums, he has wanted to do that for years! Posted: 7:39 am on April 5th
