Old Tires for Raised Beds
I am going into raised beds, separated from the regular soil with a bottom, for next year. Too many trees poisoning my garden. It can be 300 dollars for removal of one tree alone, so I'm going the route of raised bed/container gardener that has bottoms to keep from absorbing what ever it is poisoning the soil.
I think I can get a surplus of old tires from the auto places who have to pay to get rid of them. Rather than to buy wood or bags of concrete to make raised beds, it would make sense to use the tires.
I found some cool ways to paint them up:
This one describes how to make tiers or layers of different sized tires for a garden bed.
Does anyone have photos of any unusual way to decorate tires? I'll probably have 20 x30 garden with them.
I'm going to set them up and compost in them directly, so next year I will have great soil already waiting.
