We have a whole garden full of free or easily obtainable throw away items, or items that are constructed to a very tight budget. Here is just a small selection.
Free plant support.
Free storage using the front of a luton body.
Free garden table/bench made from scrap oak with a douglas top.
I made another one last week from yet more scrap oak.
Fold out and put away bean supports. These cost about £5.00 to make, but can be used over and over again
Free fire pit made from a washing machine drum, and a free BBQ made from an childrens swing and a metal shelf.
A free simple garden pot stand/bench made from more scrap oak.
Free bird table made from part of a felled oak tree.
A very heavy duty gadern shed which cost about £70.00 to construct. The £70.00 was cost for the cost of the materials to carry out the concrete base. Everything else came pretty much from skip diving.
A free nest box.
A free oak garden bench, made from scrap oak. We have three of these.
Victorian path edgings used to make bordered beds.. More skip diving!
