It’s fun to upcycle items and use leftover materials to make useful features. Here are five ideas you can try in your own garden

garden seat

Leftover pavers were used to make a pretty seat for this quaint metal bench.

pallets

Wooden pallets can be stacked at varying heights to make planters for herbs and veggies.

potting station

These pallets were stacked vertically and painted white to make a pretty potting station.

tyres

Old tyres can be painted and used as planters, or as here, to retain the soil around the base of a small tree.

colourful pallets

Pallets can be painted in bright colours and attached to walls as vertical planters for hanging pots and gardening items.
