This is a very straightforward DIY project. The materials you need are an old tire, outdoor paint, rope to hang the tire, hardware to fix it to the wall and a cascading tuft of flowers.

Make a Pond For The Garden

Old tires can be repurposed into basins for small garden ponds. Their round shape and resistance of the rubber material make them suitable for an outdoor water feature.

Before inserting the tire into the ground, make sure that you put a thick film of nylon first, which will keep the water within the tire. To hide the rubber sides, use river rocks or rocks made from concrete.

9. Tiered Flower Stands

Vertical Tire Garden

This tiered vertical garden can decorate the side ends of a porch or a vertical structure on the patio. Each planter consists of three tires stacked in three tiers.

Each tire is painted a different color, which gives the planter a summer-inspired look. If you are looking to add a specific accent to your exterior, you can go for a one-color planter.

10. Stair From Old Tires

Ladder For Slope Garden

Useless car tires are useful garden supplies. In addition to decoration projects, old tires can be used for building significant outdoor elements such as stairs.

The durability of the rubber, the round shape of the tire and its height transform the tire into a stair. This staircase leads the way through a terraced backyard. Each tire is fixed rigidly to the ground and the previous stair is filled with soil. The soil can be replaced by concrete if you want to double-secure the staircase.

11. Coffee Table From Tires

Table Tire

The rigidness and the durability of the tires have turned them into a coffee table stand. The number of stacked tires defines the height of the table.

The paint color of the tire is a way to match the table with the existing decor or to add a bold accent for a fresh overall look.

12. Garden Bed With Two Tires

 Circle Flower Garden

Old tires can be used to make a raised garden bed easily. Instead of looking for ways to edge the garden bed, the sides of the tire act as a border of the garden. Fill the gaps between the tiers from tiers with soil and then plant the flower seedlings. Soon, you will enjoy your lovely garden bed from recycled tires.

13. Hanging Flower Pots With Tires
