(BPT) - What is upcycling? Upcycling is the process of reusing discarded objects or materials to create a product of higher quality or value than the original.
Why upcycle? With many materials like lumber in high demand but with limited availability, building things like fences, planters or raised planter boxes has become more costly than ever. Consider upcycling materials you already have to create new focal points in your yard, adding color and creating interest while being environmentally responsible.
