Here’s my old wheelbarrow that I picked up at an estate sale many years ago. The minute I eyed it, I knew it needed to be added to my menagerie of garden junk. It’s pretty rickety and wouldn’t work very well for the purpose it was intended, so a perfect opportunity to upcycle or repurpose.
I don’t have pictures of this, but I had my hubs drill some holes in the bottom of the wheelbarrow for drainage. If the wheelbarrow is old and rusty, you may not even need to drill holes in the bottom.
Next, I filled the wheelbarrow with potting mix. Just a side note here, I reuse my potting mix that’s in my containers. This may not be a good idea if you live in a climate where it doesn’t get really cold (like my zone 4 gardens) to kill off any bugs or diseases that the soil may harbor.
