Converting Your Old Gutter into a Planter

Have you recently made the switch to a seamless gutter system, and are wondering what to do with your old rain gutters? Or are you considering a new gutter system, but are worried about disposing of the old gutters? The good news is that you can create new life for old rain gutters, namely, as planters. So in case a better, hassle-free gutter system wasn’t motivation enough, now you can get use out of those old gutters.

SF Gate outlines the process here. Here’s the simplified version of the step-by-step process:

  • Use a portion of an old gutter at least 4.5 feet long
  • Mark off 3 equally sized sections of the gutter, as you will be able to plant 3 strawberry plants with this length of gutter
  • Secure both ends with glue or other adhesive, to make a closed planter.
  • Insert soil and then strawberry plants
  • Water with 1.5 inches per week
  • Watch your very own strawberry plant produce fruit!

For the complete instructions to try at home, visit the SF Gate guide. The beauty is that with this little trick, you no longer need a garden to plant and grow Strawberries or any other fruit that will work well in a small planter. You can put these planters on a deck railing, mount them under a window like a flower box, or string them to a fence post, among other options!

The thought of making the transition to new gutters can be hard. If your gutters are in any way faulty, or are just becoming too much of a hassle to maintain, then it is absolutely time for a change.

Solutions like this Strawberry planter make the transition easier, knowing that there are uses for your old gutters once you make the change.
