Homeowners and DIYers have been repurposing old, worn-out items in their personal projects for quite some time. However, the practice has gotten very popular over the past few years, and now it has an official name: upcycling. Rather than simply finding a new use for old junk or recycling its materials, upcycling is intended to take defunct items and turn them into something even better than they were originally.
One of the best places to use upcycled materials is the garden. From using scrap wood to craft raised beds to forming old license plates into flower planters, there’s a ton of room for creativity.
