If you have a garden I am sure you have some sort of garden treasure in it. My latest find has been a drop down side baby crib. These cribs have been recalled and can not be resold because they have been deemed unsafe. So keep your eyes peeled for people who are wanting to get rid of their cribs. I found mine at the end of a driveway waiting for the trash man to pick it up.

You may be asking why does she want a crib for her garden? I have a slight love for clematis and clematis need to climb! I will be ‘planting’ the crib ends and sides in various locations to let my clematis have something to cling to and get tall in my garden.

Another idea is to make a flower ‘bed’.  Bury the ends and sides down deep enough that you can plant inside of it and have it look like a bed. This is a very cute idea if you have the space.

And lastly, I can for see using the ends as a ‘backdrop’ in the garden. The nice shape and color would be beautiful to ‘plant’ behind a planting of Monarda, Rudbeckia, Daylilies, or even in a shade garden to contrast with Hostas.

Just let your imagination be your guide, that are so many treasures out there waiting to be repurposed!
