Make a Pretty Garden With Rubbish Removal Junk – Trellises & Fences
Beautiful Trellises From Rescued Rubbish Removal
There is perhaps nothing more beautiful in a garden than a “living wall,” i.e. a trellis with climbing plants slowing spreading across with the structure with their tendrils. Gardeners’ favorites include climbing roses, morning glories, decorative gourds, miniature pumpkins, sweet peans, and pole beans. Whether your primary intention is to create a privacy screen or simply a zen oasis, creating a trellis from rescued rubbish removal will give your living wall even more charm and allure.
Just about any piece of rubbish removal that stands upright and has limb-like structures, or can be rebuilt this way, can serve as a beautiful trellis. Use your imagination and make it your own creation, something totally unique that you can either keep as your secret place for sipping tea or share with your friends. Here are some suggestions to get those creative juices flowing:
– Decorative metal headboards can make a lovely trellis. If you don’t have one of your own, you can nab these for free from the rubbish removal piles from neighbors or for cheap from resale shops or boot sales. You can easily find modern designs or antique designs, whatever your personal taste draws you to!
– Torn down gazebos, arbors, pergolas, and other garden structures. People often bin these as they decay, considering them rubbish removal junk. You can breath new life into these beautiful structures by mending them or patchworking them together into a beautiful trellis.
– Old bicycles and bicycle wheels make creative trellises. One idea in this theme that has gone viral online is arranging old bicycle wheels on a pole to create a sort of bicycle wheel totem pole. What may be even more interesting is to add other types of rubbish removal into a themed totem pole trellis. Your message could be obvious or provide a more hidden meaning that people could ponder. These could even be a tribute to a deceased loved one whose estate you inherit containing odds and ends you don’t know what to do with.
– Sticks or poles of any kind! If you have three sticks or poles, you can easily make a tripod style trellis. If you have more than three, you can make a teepee (tipi) style trellis.
– Pieces of old wire fences or any other wire you happen to find in the rubbish removal can be turned into a trellis! The advantage of wire is it can be shaped any way you want. It can also be added to other types of trellises to extend the climbing structure.
Decorative Fences That Serve a Practical Purpose
Fences can be made from all sorts of rubbish removal. Any type of pole that you can hammer into the ground can easily be converted into a fence. These DIY fences serve all sorts of purposes.
Some gardeners build a fence around their vegetable gardens to deter badgers, deer, foxes, hedgehogs, and other animals from eating their harvest or destroying it by walking through. Others build fences for privacy or to block out ugly views, including even their own rubbish removal bins. You may want to build a fence to keep the kids from rough housing around your beautiful flowers. Fences can also serve as good wind barriers too.
Whatever your purpose, you can pretty up your garden with these DIY fences. Here are some ideas for the type of rubbish removal that can be made from waste removal:
– One man in Seattle Washington, USA, made a beautiful fence from old skis that did not sell at a Rotary Club fundraiser! In doing so, he saved these from the landfill and started conversations all over the net on how to build fences from rubbish removal!
– Unpainted wooden pallets can be rescued, torn apart, and used to make rustic garden fences. You can also sand them and paint them to make prim and proper wood picket fences.
– Pieces of metal salvaged from rubbish removal can be patchworked together between wooden poles to make a great wind break fence or privacy fence.
– Sometimes gardeners get really creative when building fences out of rubbish removal. One man collected discarded doors to make a large fence that served as a good deterrent to kids and pets who were trampling his garden.. Another gardener strung vertical lines of glass bottles and then hung these from rescued beams of lumber to make a groovy see through fence.
– Old discarded fences can be revived by mending them or by re-purposing their parts into a totally different type of fence! For an intriguing eclectic look, you can even combine parts of several old fences into one new fence.
Talk To Your Neighbors
If you see a neighbor throwing out a big heap of rubbish removal, ask them if they wouldn’t mind you salvaging some of it for your garden. Almost always neighbors are more than accommodating when asked and they may even want to copy you once they see your project(s) underway.
You can take this opportunity to get to know them and to encourage them not to let their rubbish go to the landfill. One of the easiest ways to divert your own rubbish from landfills is to call Clearabee, the UK’s largest private rubbish removal service. Unlike the contractors hired by most council services, the Clearabee team do everything they possibly can to either reuse or recycle the rubbish they collect. Every year they’ve been in business, they improved this effort and they now reuse or recycle about ninety percent of the junk they collect.
