New Uses for Old Tires at the Cabin

Let’s hope we have a long, mild fall to keep enjoying our outside and cabin activities. However, as autumn arrives, we start winterizing and making lists of projects to get down either yet this fall or first thing in the spring. Here are a few uses for old tires at the cabin that may come in handy.new uses for old tires

Stairs: Use tires filled with gravel to create rustic steps down steep hills.

Dock: Use tires to protect your boat and other water toys from hitting the dock. Use a series of tires on water structures for safer storage of canoes, kayaks, paddle boats when resting out of the water.

Play Area: Create a tire swing, climbing wall, ladder to a tree house, or sand box. Partially buried (upright) tires make interesting, and softer climbing structures for toddlers.

Lawn Games: A series of tires buried half in the ground makes a great semi-permanent croquet or mini-golf course through rustic property. Upright tires can serve as target practice for artery, pitching practice for softball or baseball, and more. Use old tires partial buried and filled with sand around horse shoe pits.

Wind-Proof: Need help making something more sturdy? Keep your rain water retention bucket upright by placing an old tire around it. Use tires to keep potted plants and flower from tipping, outside garbage cans, compost bins, and more.
