Recycled Tires Garden Planter

Upcycle old tires into modern and colorful planter.
I am aware that there are many of you who don't like tire projects at all. You say it is not eco friendly to use or reuse them at any point as, for example, this Recycled Tires Pond I wrote a while ago. I respect your opinion, but I have got quite the opposite. We will always use tires, and there is no safer way to recycle them, than turning them into something new, useful and often very creative.

Although I prefer wild gardens, I have just found an amazing Recycled Tires Planter Project which I could have actually put in mine if I had one. It comes from "Lemon, Bean and Things" blog, and it is truly eye-catching for those neon colors used to paint tires of different types and sizes. The author of this enormous planter gives you all detailed information on the project and also attaches beautiful photos before and after plants have grown.

If you are a creative one, and I assume you are, you can put them different way, paint other colors and make it even bigger. Treat this as an inspiration to upcycle your old tires that probably clutter your garage, and in the other case would have been thrown into landfill. I am also waiting for your other ideas of recycling tires as this is a burning issue for most of us.
