Gardening with Old Vehicle Parts
Have you recently had a vehicle come to its final end? Maybe it has been through enough repairs. You and the vehicle have had some good times, but it is about time for it to retire. Additionally, maybe you have recently found some extra parts in the garage that you have no need to install on any vehicle, and you are looking for a good use for those parts--besides scrap. If you see these as an opportunity to explore something creative this Spring, why not try a little salvage decorating? Rather than buying an abundance of extra gardening decor' items, why not make the most of those extra vehicle parts? Rather than shipping the whole thing down to the junkyard, look at it again--critically. Might there be some interesting pieces to salvage for a beautiful setting in the backyard? Are your creative juices flowing? Do you enjoy gardening? There may be a great solution to be discovered! Why not use some of the more aesthetic parts from an old vehicle to plant and grow a garden?
Is it a more movable, "mobile garden" you are considering? Why not try planting it in the bed of an old pickup and letting the array of colors make that rusty, old clunker stand out? There are many possible ways to prepare it, making those spare parts not only useful, but a real "fit" with the look and theme of your garden.
Some may argue, is it a work of beauty or an eye sore? If it has a nice balance of color and function, it could be a beautiful piece of lawn decoration and just what you are looking for as a challenge and solution to growing a great garden this spring. Additionally, this may be a fun way to bring together the whole family for some enjoyable springtime activity.
“Unburying” old tires can provide a welcome sign of spring for many gardeners and are often put to use holding a variety of “deep rooted” plants. The tires provide a solid boundary, edging, warmth for spring shoots, or even a unique "upward" way to grow potatoes!
There seem to be plenty of uses for vehicle parts in vegetable gardens and in other forms of “decorative art”. What fun to give it a try this year!
If your vehicle is still together and running well, stop by and have it detailed at our shop in 4 corners. We will help get the dirt off of it, so you can get back into it, and once again really enjoy working in it.
