1. Tire Swing


You can make a tire swing and hang it in your garden in a warm and open spot. Children love this. Just paint a tire with shiny bright colors and make cool designs over it. Take care while hanging. You can use both the ropes and chains to hang it.

A pond in a garden gives it a complete look. It’s an essential part of garden design. If you still haven’t made it, use a large tractor or car tire to make it, paint it using durable and nontoxic best quality outdoor spray paint. You can swim fishes in it and grow aquatic plants like lilies and iris.

Arranging tires and making DIY tire planters is also an option to reuse tires. Make sure you’ll never grow edible plants in them if you live in a hot tropical climate because tires heat up quickly.
If you’re living in a colder climate, then this will be good practice for you as tires insulate the plants and provide warmth to them.

7. Pet Bed

  1. One comment on planters made with tires states “never grow edibles” in them. Another with tractor tires states not planting veggies to close to the tire edge because it may get to hot.

  2. Super creative! For those concerned with chemicals leaching out, do you also garden organically? Otherwise the question is kind of silly. I’ve never read about tires poisoning water or plants etc, but they have been used in the building of eco houses and such and I’d think the environmentalists, above all, would research it damaging their water supply if they’re using them. Great website! Thanks!
