Recycling as Art in the Garden

I wonder what other great recycling ideas are out there using items that would normally end up in a landfill. Please post any photos you want to share. This idea really was exciting to me because our local Transfer Station Does Not Recycle Glass! I tried to turn in some bottles, and they said to put it with the regular trash going to the landfill! Ever since then I have been trying to think of something to do with all of those bottles…Here is my answer. Garden Art!

    His castle and just about everything in it was made from discards. If you ever come to Florida, go see it. It’s great fun to tour.

    Great idea. I’ve seen a picture of gabion walls filled in with old plastic bottles instead of stones. Interesting.
