Container Gardening Ideas: Stack of Tires Used as a Planter!

Whatever your feelings are about ferns, you can't help but love them when somebody gets creative.

Here's something new to do with old tires:


  1. Get four different-sized old tires.

  2. Stack them up like one of those old-fashioned children's toys with the different sized plastic or wooden hoops.

  3. Fill with soil.

  4. Plant with something fun.

Now if this were my project, then I would definitely look for something a bit more interesting to put in this fun planter.

The ferns they chose are not even NICE ferns in my opinion! Just something green to make a point.

Imagine this with roses growing out of it. Or something blue and pretty. Or a proper container garden flower display -- that would be really special.

Been inspired by this "tired" display? You can search for planters made form recycled tires at Amazon. Don't buy plastic, let's put those old tires to a better use!
