These garden beds are a perfect size for the little ones.


  • 1 old tank
  • 1 pc old hose
  • old paint


  1. Find an old unloved tank.... get your dad or hubby to cut it in half, or thirds depending on what height you want.
  2. Cut the hose and place it along the top.
    The cut side of the tank can be sharp for little fingers and the hose offers great protection.
  3. Paint it in your favourite colours or leave it with a rustic effect.
  4. Fill with compost and dirt..Plant Plant Plant!


A piece of trellis or wire gives a great spot for peas or beans to climb.
