5 Easy Steps to transform Old Wheelbarrow

I hate throwing things on the skip. When our wheelbarrow got a puncture I refused to get rid of it and researched ideas of how to put it to another use.  We had an empty space next to our garden shed which was the perfect position for it and in just a few minutes transformed it into a large and super original vegetable plot. I have planted some strawberries, beans, peas, tomatoes, potatoes, garlic and rhubarb. The wheelbarrow looks great and also works as a raised bed to be safe against slugs to reach.

Difficulty: EASY




Tools required: drill

Shopping list:

  • Soil
  • Plants/ Vegetables/ Herbs
  • Garden gloves

Tip: You can look for broken wheelbarrows in your local skip for free or a minimum cost.
