recycled bottle garden pathway

i finished (at least i think) this section of the yard. well still have to paint fence but its been very hot and also rainy so using that as a excuse to avoid it.

thanks to a super cool freecycler you will see my new edging! i thought i was gonna pick up just a bag or two but there were five to my delight!! i had just said hey i need something cool,free and recycled to outline the edges last week and SO here it is. they are baby food jars. my soil is sand, so they were super easy to push in. the kiddos towards the end of prepping them helped open the lids and peel off the labels. my hand was getting sore!


i haven't weeded=obviously.

baby jar edging

recycled pathway

the walkway is made out of recycled bottles-i put a bit of watered down paint in the clear bottles and let them dry in the sun before i stuck them underground. i didn't get a close up-sorry. these bottles needed to be a bit larger for more stability since we walk there. i also used paint lids, hubcaps, and coffe cups. it took a bit of work to dig down far enough-although my youngest son did alot of it-he loves to dig.


my big dog kept digging in this section by the tree so i tried to fill it with things to keep her out. lets see if it works!


i forgot the english name of this plant-we eat the roots-its like a sweet potato.


this is what i reworked the other day. another freecycler gave me some mother tongues and the spider plants. it still needs less weeds and more plants.


i uncluttered here and added a few hibiscus.

the whole view

here's the full view of the song quote-it used to have alot of saw blades, frames and other bits-they've fell off and i'm too lazy to redo it. i still need to rework the stuff in front of fence.

thats good for today-its still hot at 7! i'm off to make something yummy for dinner.
