Good point about the legal aspect. I had forgotten that some areas regulate tire disposal more than others. Here in the Hellmouth, things like that are pretty loose.
Tell me about it... I moved here from Portland, Oregon. Culture shock much? Yikes.
Sure. You can fill them with dirt and make little raised planting beds; cut them in half and bury them on edge for edging; grind them up into tiny bits and use them as mulch; stack them up in a tall open rectangle, reinforce with rebar, fill with dirt or concrete, add a roof and you've got a garden shed, or just hang one from a tree and use it as a swing. Anything that keeps them out of the landfill...
Great ideas I can't think of another one right now.
Thanks to all of you about the information of used tyes.So nice.
For many years in Australia, folk have been making swans (yep, the bird), for their gardens with tyres. They are cut in a certain simple way, painted white,- and there's your swan! They used to be in practically every garden! You can also grow potatoes in stacked tyres-adding a tyre as the plant comes up (filling with soil of course!). Then, when ready, dismantle the tyres, and you have a looong root system with plenty of spuds. This can even be done on a concrete base. Google these two up for a how to.
