Saving Screen from the Scrap Yard April 7, 2009

How do we hold the soil in and let the water out of our second hand crates?

Our burlap idea was great – but short lived. We realized that burlap breaks down…and then we’d be left with a muddy mess on the deck after time. Plus, we’d not yet found a source for ‘used’ burlap.

 

Idea #2: Screen!

 

We hit up the local screen/metal companies and Voila! They happened to have a whole box that was headed to the scrap yard. We diverted it, cut it into squares, lined our crates and now it holds the soil that will soon grow plants.  

 

Soil in/water out.

Plants in: next step!
