I had four tires lying down in a corner, waiting for a second life. I like gardening, and I wanted to try making a little orchard at the terrace. I thought, “Why not?” and so I transformed them into some containers to grow up tomatoes, aubergines, courgettes…
I cut one of the sides and painted the tires with some paint left from another project. Once they were painted, I put a mesh both to avoid the ground leaving the tires and to have a good water drainage. I used the circle I had cut to hold the mesh and I filled them with ground, after putting them on a high support to avoid humidity.
The vegetables are delicious, and all the people that comes home is amazed, with such an original flowerpot!
