Repurposed vintage grass catchers as plant containers

Not sure how well the photo will show up these gorgeous vintage metal push mower grass catchers. These belong to an age when things were built to last. So much so, my budget (read second-hand) brand name drill found it difficult to punch holes for water drainage. Hence only one is planted up so far with Popcorn Petunias (a plant name that lives up to its hype).

Repurposed plant containers from grass catchers

The set of three (above) I picked up along the roadside when the hard rubbish collection was on. The below Super 12! grass catcher came from the rubbish tip shop and had to be purchased with its push mower. But I love both items and use the mower as a garden deco item. Some people restore these but I’m happy with my more modern mower.

Super 12! Grass catcher repurposed as a plant container!

Stand is from the rubbish tip shop, container is an old plastic bucket, v cheap watering can from big name hardware store, and a few garden deco items!

  1. The VMPMGC – this may start a whole new gardening trend. You are just so darned creative! PS I think you should sell the picture with the red flowers, watering can, etc to one of those photo websites, it could be published, and you may be famous, and rich.

  2. Hehe. Thanks anonymous. When you visit for the hard rubbish collection you can also see the garden shed (with doggie door that only the cat uses).
