Refresh worn-out garden equipment with this smart idea submitted by several TOH readers, including Elaine Vickers, whose before-and-after is shown here.

Here's what you do: Paint the basin with a rust-preventive coating, then drill a few holes in it and fill with a layer of pebbles for drainage. Top with potting soil, and plant taller blooms in the center and ones that will trail over the basin’s edges on the sides.
