If you are looking for a creative way to be friendly to the environment try using a recycled tire to “build” a backyard pond.
It’s a great idea, a wonderful way to make use of an old tire, plus a major benefit to reducing the amount of tires that otherwise end up at the local dump. Other benefits include:
- Creating a little oasis in your backyard for you to enjoy along with providing a water source for “critters” especially in areas of drought.
- Tires come in a wide variety of sizes so no matter the size of your yard you can get creative!
Basically, the tire is the “form” and sides for your pond. Put in a liner and landscape around the pond. It’s a smart use, plus an inexpensive, fun way to add a little character to your backyard landscape.
