If you're ever on the lookout for ways to reuse and recycle — or perhaps just to drink a lot of wine — this wine-bottle garden border is a clever and attractive repurposing project.
Annie and Alexis Thomas were looking for a green way to edge their gardens in an interesting and novel way. They edged their sizeable garden with 489 bottles — most collected from local restaurants and wine stores — partially buried, as the demarcation between the gardens and the foot paths that wind through them. Wine bottles are sturdy, especially the bottoms, and will last as long as they want to keep them in the garden before shipping them off to be recycled. Check out the link below — scroll down past their cool solar shower to get to the wine bottle project — for more information, or visit the via link to see more examples of wine and beer bottles being used to edge gardens.
