Top 10 Best Ways to Recycle a Wheelbarrow



For some reason, I think you will all relate to my little story here today: You see just yesterday my neighbour (who was moving out of his home) knocked on my door and asked me if I wanted my Wheelbarrow back. Now, this might not seem that unusual, but he had “borrowed” it for so long I had forgotten he had it and got myself a new one! And for some reason, I think most people will have had the same sort of thing happen to them. I would love to hear about those from everyone, but before that, I think I need to find a use for this now spare wheelbarrow I have, but what can I do with a spare wheelbarrow?!? It turns out that the answer is quite a lot…

 


Top 10 Best Ways to Recycle a Wheelbarrow

10 – From help in the garden to being a garden!

This is a good start to things and simple but cool recycling. Best of all a wheelbarrow full of plants looks rather amazing and would make a great talking point in any garden.

9 – After a long day in the garden why not take a seat for a while!

And what better thing to sit in than this rather odd, but also rather cool looking wheelbarrow that has been turned into what looks like a rather relaxing chair! But I just wouldn’t lean back to far as I suspect it has a rather low tipping point.

8 – Wheelbarrow does Desert-Storm

Almost the same as number 10 but not quite, as this is a Desert Garden succulents display rather than a planter and it doesn’t matter what you put succulents in (see my “Top 10 Best Cinder Block Planters” for proof) they will always look cool.

7 – This will go nicely with my Wheelbarrow chair!

While I have included this one in my top 10 because it is a great use of a wheelbarrow I am not so sure that I like it. Amazing recycling but just not amazing visually in my opinion.

6 – The Great British Wheelbarrow Cook Off

Yes, this is good recycling, yes it looks cool and yes it is kind of funny. But I didn’t include it for any of those, I included it because whoever this shows how highly practical it is by hanging the sausage tongs off the handles! It is like it was made to be a BBQ!

5 – Get on the Beers son!

Some men are childish idiots (like me), but some have those brains where what seems like a normal idea to them, is an EPIC WIN for everyone else and that is exactly where this one comes in. Some will say it is a flawed, cheap idea, but I love it!

4 –  “Somewhere Over the Wheelbarrow, skies are….hang on a sec!?!”

This is a company called “Beaver tool hire” in Isleworth/Twickenham, on 415 St Margeret’s Rd Isleworth and they are very well-known for this rather amazing piece of artwork that is installed on their Warehouse. A great idea if you have an overload of stock of wheelbarrows, but sadly I only have one of them to use, but it doesn’t stop me from thinking this is a great use of them.

3 – The World’s Scariest Wheelbarrow?!?

Simple but also rather cool is exactly how I would describe this Halloween Display that will be perfect for when the time come. Nothing more than some dirt and a broken old plastic skeleton stuck into the dirt! Not rocket science, just great use of a wheelbarrow!

2 – The Formula 1 of wheelbarrows.

I have now idea where to start, I have no engineering skills, I have no welding skills, but all I do have is an unrivalled need to make one of these! It would just be so much fun it’s ridiculous! Who needs seatbelts eh!

Wheelbarrow turned into a work of Art

1 – Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

And if that said “beholder” is Cal Lane then you are in for a real treat because she is widely accredited with being one of the world’s very best metal and steel artist. And so when Car Lane turns her attention to an old wheelbarrow you end up with something beyond our wildest dreams.
