Some People Trash Is Another’s Treasure

I was at a Stuck on Gardening Conference last weekend and one of the speakers (Felder Rushing) was there.

He was showing pictures of people using old tires in their gardens. Rushing is a great speaker, super funny guy. Anyways, the pictures he first showed us were some pretty tacky looking tire planters, people were using them for fences, stacking them up, painting them white, all sorts of craziness.  I really was not so sure if this guy was for real with the tire planter idea. Then at the end of his talk he was showing us some pretty cool ‘tire’ planters.

He gave us instructions of how to create these recycled pieces of art! I wanted to share this crazy, but cool idea with you.

Please be very careful when creating these pieces of art. Garden Crossings is not responsible for any accidents that may happen!
