Driveway Planter Box - Recycled to be Green





Our pool was getting old. We could have replaced the liner. But we decided to take it down. What do you do with old pool parts? 

Why you make a planter box out of them.


My husband cut the pool parts down to size to match the length of the fence. 


He then raised the pool parts with concrete blocks. This will help with drainage and much needed height.


Left over fencing was used to make the planter box.

   
 I couldn't wait to fill it with flowers!


Roof flashing was used to cover between the pool parts. This will keep the potting soil from falling out the bottom.
We added drainage rocks and then filled the planter with soil.



I loved how it turned out but it was still missing something. 
So I decorated the fence.


~ It's so much prettier now! ~


I spray painted the metal wall hangings and flying rabbit black.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
If you love my projects I would LOVE your pins;)

What a creative idea! I love it! And the addition of the rabbit and pots hung on the fence look SO good!

Great work. Good luck on the kitchen job. My husband added a closet to a room and we've had drywall dust everywhere for days now. Every time I think I've gotten it all, more filters down on everything. It's a long term clean up!

Dee--that's a fabulous repurpose! The planter box is great. I love the use of the old fence. I have some, but it's going fast. I need to find some more. I find myself looking around as I drive, comparing the patina of old fences to mine. lol

love the flying rabbit! hahah
