We've just had a New bathroom installed and looking at some of the stuff we are throwing out I can't help but think they could be used in thgarden.
The glass shower panel could be used for the topof a potential cold frame?Excess ceramic tiles could be stuck to my grey concrete raised bed to brighten them up?That kind of thing.Is this pie in the sky and am I overlooking any later problems with this or would it be okay?Or indeed, have any of you tried something similar and have any tips to pass on?
Many thanks.

Great ideas Margaritaville.
Why not create a mosaic from the broken tiles........... http://www.wildtiles.co.uk/outdoor_mosaic_crieff.php

you could use the bath as a boggarden or dipping pool, glass can be used for coldframe and spare piping is always handy. one persons junk is anothers treasure

i was all for keeping our old bath but the family were not keen, i can understand them though as our gardens not the biggest so not really anywhere for it to go. i'd have loved to have had it for my strawberries, i thought it would have looked very interesting Smile

Ha ha, yeah that would have been worth seeing!Definitely going to use the old glass shower screen for a cold frame in the coming weeks and then even as a way of generating a bit of extra heat/shelter during the summer.
Would love to mosaic something but know nothing about it so intend to read up online.
