Upcycling garden decorations – the new trend in the design of every outdoor area
We all have old, already unnecessary things that have been lying in the basement or in the attic for years. Some of us have also kept beautiful items from grandma’s time. Too bad to throw these away and buy new modern ones. That is why the upcycling trend comes to our aid. From old to new – this is the modern slogan in garden design too! First look around in the basement or on the roof and decide what you can use for your upcycling garden decorations. You don’t need to lavishly decorate the outside area with old things. All you have to do is get some items out and give them a second chance. For example, it is not difficult to turn an old barrel or a wine press into a great flower container. First of all, it’s fun to do this creative job. Second, you save money and do something good for the environment.

Upcycling garden decorations – create a striking new home for your flowers yourself!
Many hobby gardeners believe that garden flowers only grow in the garden bed, in pots or boxes. If you also share this opinion, then you are thinking wrong! Old objects are perfect for planting and are the be-all and end-all of upcycling garden decorations. With a colored coating you can freshen up old watering cans, tin cans, buckets and zinc tubs, even car tires and use them as flower containers outside. In doing so, you absolutely have to take care of a drain at the bottom of these vessels. Otherwise waterlogging can easily form in the container, but it could destroy your beautiful flowers.

Use upcycling garden decorations in moderation
As we have already mentioned, you shouldn’t overdo it with the upcycling garden decorations! This always looks spectacular and attracts everyone’s attention. However, you don’t have to use a lot of old objects as garden decorations. Otherwise you run the risk of turning your garden into a junkyard. Too much scrap metal, scrap wood and other stuff have no place there. Limit yourself to an eye-catcher or some old items arranged in a group. In this way you keep the good look of your outdoor area and create a real eye-catcher. This can be an old wheel or even a whole bicycle, a wind chime made from old kitchen stuff or even a wooden ladder on which you place small bird houses. In this way you show all guests and neighbors that you think creatively and act in an environmentally friendly manner.
