One of the latest trends is to build your own greenhouse or garden shed… from plastic bottles! Assuming that plastic is insulating and allows the sun’s rays to pass through, plastic bottles can therefore be used perfectly to protect seedlings and plantations from frost and bad weather. Provided you are a minimal handyman, it is an interesting way to recycle your water bottles and enjoy creating a garden at a lower cost!

Finally, before you start, make sure you have collected at least 1500 1.5 L plastic bottles. Also plan several bamboo rods in the height of your structure to string the bottles head to tail. In addition, these rods must protrude from the threaded bottles in order to be able to fix the ends thereof. Smart, right? Here is a selection of the most beautiful achievements:
