Replacing your old wooden fence with a new one doesn’t have to be the end of its story. In fact, you can recycle it! Upcycling old wood is an eco-friendly way to give old wooden fencing a new purpose. Here is some more information about how to do this!
Build a Planter
Winter seems like it won’t go away. Still, it won’t be long until warmer weather comes back. Prepare your landscape for the change in seasons by building a planter from old reclaimed wood. You can also try planting new flowers and plants too, even though the mulching season isn’t here just yet. Your new wooden fence will have some fresh and natural decorations on it, which can only help improve your curb appeal!
Create a Compost Bin
Another idea you can try as winter gives way to spring is to build a compost bin with old reclaimed fence wood. Having a compost bin nearby will make many of your gardening tasks easier. This technique is another useful way to save money and help do your part for the environment. Since there is an opening on the bottom, you can prevent dirt spillage and other accidents that can make your lawn and landscape look worse when you didn’t mean for that to happen. Either way, keep an eye on what you want to compost since you don’t want to be an inconsiderate neighbor! Always remember that good fence etiquette calls for constant communication with your neighbors – plus, you can see if they want to join in your gardening project, too!
Try Building a Birdhouse
Many birds fly south for the winter. Around this time of year, they’ll be coming home. Say welcome all of your fine feathered friends home with a new birdhouse! This gives them another place to rest and recharge before they start building a new nest. If you already like birdwatching or want to pick it up as a hobby this year, then this is a great way to start!
