I'm not normally a fan of old tires in the yard, LOL, but I have to say, these look pretty spiffy!

Enjoy,
Karen

Karen...Those tire planters do look pretty spiffy. That is a good descriptive word for them. I have never seen them painted like that...Have only seen the ones turned inside out. Thank you for sharing.

They really look nice! I've seen them out here on blvds piled 2 high & filled with flowers or greenery & they look very nice. They were just black but with flowers or green hanging down still looked great. I guess because they are so thick they probably don't heat up on inside & stuff might do better when it is really hot.

RE: old tires

Back in the beginning years of garden junk, there were some painted with 'stripes'. For example, the white tire has rows of different 'looks'--2 alike with a smooth row in the middle. Each would be painted a different color.
I always thought those were nice too! The tires I usually have access to are not as nicely marked.

LOL! My baretread wouldn't paint up near as nice! I've have 2 'turned ones' outside for over 30 yrs now...so they do 'wear' good!

I am loving these 'colors!' Good recycling! TFS, PM! Jeanne s.

RE: old tires

I have my Bob on the look out for old tires. I thought of painting them similar to those in the pictures (just different colors). I figured it would be a great way to create a garden along the one fence without digging up the dirt. And if I can stack them 2 high, it would make them more accessible too. TFS, Karen!
