From scrap metal to the garden

Some of Mums recycling, from Dad's scrap metal yard to her garden........




Barbed wire birds nest

Barbed wire orbs. The concrete stand was actually the lump they dug out the lawn that held the old metal clothesline!

An old plough disk holds the orbs. 

Water trough floats, and the smallest, a bed knob, held up with pipe

  11. Wow, those garden decors look nice, even more so if you’re a scrap metal enthusiast. It’s amazing how stuff like scrap metal can still be put to good use. It will be really nice for the environment if we’d recycle them as much as we can. Thanks for sharing this with us. All the best!
