I live way out in the country on 2 acres of woods with no close neighbors so I can do pretty much what I want to in the yard. Old tires make great planters. I stack two up, put about 12 empty drink cans in the bottom then start filling the tires up with alternating layers of straw and soil. I usually plant tomatoes or peppers in them. The tires hold water in so don't have to be watered every day. Also good for veggies that rabbits will eat as bunnies don't climb.
