We have so much junk in the garage so I decided to upcycle some of those items for my garden. First if you haven’t heard of the word upcycle, it means you basically re-purpose whatever junk you have into something useful. It is good for the environment.
Anyway, we had metal storage box in the garage that was there for years. I decided to use it for my garden.
First I re-painted the blue metal box to brown and then drilled holes for water drainage. After that, I filled the box with soil and perlite and transferred my home-grown plants into it. Finally, I put mulch on top of the soil.
Those herb plants belong to Mediterranean climate so they can be planted together in the box as their soil and water requirements are the same. I put the tall plants in top and the short ones down.Top: From left to right: Sage, Rosemary, Sage. Down from left to right: thyme, marjoram.
Well, that was it. I hope I inspired into upcycling whatever you have for your garden.
