DIY Upcycling Garden Ideas

bottle recycled-greenhousePlastic bottle greenhouses are fairly simple DIY garden infrastructures that require a certain number of recyclable plastic bottles. Greenhouses are excellent for creating a hothouse environment for year-round growing in cold weather climates and they enable outdoor plants and vegetable gardens to survive the harshest winter months.  Not only are they easy-to-maintain, greenhouses are self-watering and increase temperatures by at least 10 degrees Celsius (18°F). Once you have built your greenhouse, the remaining bottles can be used to create planters. Herb and flower seedlings can be added to potting soil, pressing down until compact, then watered to make them grow.
