Recycling is not only an eco-friendly gesture and a way to save good money at home. When it comes to inventing new uses for the most different objects, creative ideas can be authentic geniuses that are useful and decorative or simply embellish and add a note of color and originality to our balcony, terrace or garden.

In fact, gardens are spaces that invite you to enjoy with your eyes, either alone, feeding the mind and soul or also to share and show others how beautiful we have that small and at the same time large space that inspires us so much. full of life. For the same reason, we want to help you create original gardens with recycled objectsthat is, a recyclable garden.


We started the ideas of gardens with recycled materials with pots. Conventional pots will turn pale with envy when they take a look around and see those old suitcases, coffee pots, saucepans, wellies or chirucas that have found their place among plants, up to the top of the ground and wasting happiness, with flowering plants, giving a different touch, as fun as it is decorative. Really beautiful corners can be achieved if we know how to combine elements, without overloading, with style and good taste.

Plastic bottles are great protagonists in gardens that make use of recycled materials. Well used as seedbeds or as hanging pots, or to create a vertical garden, in which case we will need a good number of bottles.

Furniture and sculptures

It is possible to mount a hydroponic system with plastic bottlesalthough for this we will need to have a minimum knowledge about hydroponics and a lot of skill, but we must recognize that, if the result is going to be like the one in the image above, it is well worth trying to be able to have our own hydroponic garden.

Or, for example, put to do DIY, glass bottles are a real gold mine to get small decorative vases in which to cultivate without land. The principle is the same as hydroponic cultivation. Basically, the idea is similar to that childhood game that consisted of placing a potato or sweet potato in a glass of water, holding it with toothpicks so that the roots could access it.

We’ll get to do those hydroponic pots or containers cutting the bottles in half (there are tools to do it, for safety don’t try it without them) and placing the plant in the upper part, fitted with the base, from which it will get the water through the same roots. The result is very decorative, and we can also do it with plastic bottles, although they do not look as good.
