No budget decor for your garden? This is not a reason for doing nothing!

Zero budgets do not mean zero ideas. Here is how some of ideas can embellish the garden with recovery and engineering materials. Most of these can be done on your own, are achievable with current tools you have already had. If you are not equipped but you like the concept of Second Life objects, perhaps is it a good motivation to start to equip yourself. You will probably find a lot of fun with this new hobby.

  1. A palisade


Here is an original way to delineate the dining area in the garden. The palisade paneling, painted in almond green, is enhanced by a perforated board’s patchwork. Do not throw the pieces of cleats from your various crafts or door frames you have removed!

These old shutters and exotic pieces are found here another utility to pale the wall so that plants can climb on it.

  1. Light!

This is perhaps the only ideas among these achievements for which we need a very special tool – a wheel glazier, less than 10 Euros – in order to achieve the beautiful shade of this devilishly original suspension.

Another idea of festive lighting is manufacturing in lanterns. Drill them with big drills or metal bit. In the bottom, put a tea light or a small wireless LED spotlight that illuminates pressure (about 2 Euros).

  1. A green wall

Planters that will brighten up the brick wall are old gutters zinc. Emphasize plants as a clash staggered at equal heights and drill them in the background, like flower pots.

  1. A container Decor


The first who said that old can does no point in the garden is all wrong! Cut them into two, they can serve as barbecue brazier or even containers to burn the leaves (regularly use at certain times and seasons). Attention! This remains artisanal and quite dangerous for children.

Here is a much more refined reuse old can. If you have more, why not make a round in the garden instead of doing square like everyone else?

Even the used paint cans which are painted in bright colors can be reused in the garden vases or flower pots.
