Well ive been wanting to add a fence to a small shaded area next to my room. I recycled an old cast iron bedhead as a gate. It looks great. Ive also got some fencing pieces left over from the pool fencing. I cleaned out all old plants and added some more. It looks great

  • My son built my veggie patch from recycled products. He repurposed some old star pickets and chicken wire. Same with the soil, it’s cast offs from the flower farm next door, we’ve added heaps of fertiliser to build it up. The gate is our old fire guard. I’m very impressed and it grows great veggies

  • Tonight I sat in my little area with my ipad until it got dark. I planted some cuttings in tree logs as pots. Placed a step ladder up so i can use it for shelfing.

  • Our first brass bedhead came out of an old chook pen & is still used in our guest bedroom! I agree it would look lovely as a fence in the right backyard!
