Making sure that we do all we can to care for the planet and reduce our carbon footprint is something that we all have to do. In the garden there are many ways that you can do this, by recycling and reusing things that might usually be seen as waste or rubbish. Here are three things that you might like to try…
Use DIY Project Leftovers
Making your garden look unique and beautiful can be done with anything – you might be surprised! If you have unused pipes like this Watkins and Powis copper pipe, you could use it to create a beautiful water feature, or if you have spare concrete, why not use it to create your own mosaic paving slabs? Many items that are left over from DIY projects can be used to create amazing garden ornaments.
Use Plastic Bottles
Plastic bottles and milk cartons are great for using in the garden. You can use them to make your own seed growing trays, for watering seedlings, or for making scoops. They are incredibly handy, and it is a great way to reuse the plastic bottles that you have for something that helps the planet!
Start a Compost Heap
Composting is one of the best things that you can do for your garden and for the environment. A lot of food waste and even cardboard can be added to compost. There are lots of great online guides that you can easily follow that will help you to start your compost heap.
