Bad Taste in Yard Decor

Sometimes I understand the impulse towards HOAs and prior approval by landlords prior to changes in apartments or yards.  Here are some original ideas for planters that some people have thought up, and which others might find cringeworthy:

An old toilet as a planter

How about a pink bra as a planter for your petunias?

Using an old tire takes recycling to the next level!

the tire i almost like! sure would save the lawnmower from hitting rocks or tangling up in flower bed fencing! :)

i've seen the toilets, tubs, even old bed frames for planting. not really a fan. i like when they park a bicycle and plant flowers in its basket - or use an old rusty wheelbarrow for a planter. :)

The "bra as planter" is a new idea. Not necessarily a good one, but a new one.

OK. I have to say, I love the toilet planter!

Things that drive the OCDers of the HOAs nuts.

I made a toilet bowl lamp with tall sea grass tufts up out of the holes where the seat would be attached. Blue light bulb inside as I recall.

These represent a creative, recycling approach to gardening.
