Bicycles as Yard/Garden Art

Increasingly, I am observing vintage or used bicycles being employed as yard/garden art. In this post are two examples from one street (16th) here in Traverse City, Michigan.

Bicycle are a terrific decorative addition to the yard/garden or can be also utilized as a planter when the bike has a basket, as is the case with both of these examples.

Adaptive reuse of bicycles in this manner is environmentally friendly, as it keeps them out of landfills; it promotes cycling in a subtle and visual way; and it is an artistic and whimsical addition to the local steetscape. Sounds like a win-win-win option we all should consider when deciding what to do with our used bicycles.
