Use Recycled Bed Springs in the Garden

I really recycle, and that includes taking old furniture apart so I can use the parts. I like getting the springs out of old box mattresses, couches and easy chairs, because I can use them for several years to protect seedlings in the garden, and/or make trellises. They aren't beautiful, but they are sturdy, and last at least 5 years even in rough weather.

That would look beautiful with morning glory climbing up all around & through it! :)
