PLASTIC BOTTLE GREENHOUSES

Plastic bottles have the joint honour of being both an environmental disaster, and a very useful material for DIY freecycling projects in the garden: whether they be used for sub-irrigated planters, vertical gardens, simple cloches, underground water reservoirs, makeshift hydroponics components, or in these cases, an entire greenhouse.

First upcycling project, and I gotta say, I was surprised how difficult it was to find scrap pieces of plywood in a somewhat decent condition. Found this and a few other reusable pieces in a school dumpster just before they were covered (and eventually warped) by rain and snow. I’m totally going to be making a few other pieces and if you’re cheap and broke like me, they’re good gift ideas too.

Here’s the tutorial if you’re looking at attempting to make your own string inspired work of art.

If you feel inspired to build an Herb Spiral, don’t limit yourself to using the materials and designs I did!

Bricks were just what I had on hand, but I’ve seem them made from wattle, bottles, roofing tiles, wood, and piping.
