THE SECOND “LIFE” TYRE

SECOND Any gardener knows that watering flower beds need warm water and therefore an indispensable attribute of the summer residents are steel drums. When they are new, wherever you went, and when they rust, they are destined to become scrap metal. But few people realize that there is another, more rational and essentially free way to create an almost “eternal” storage of warm water – the tires of heavy wheeled tractors, which are in abundance lying around in many places. Better – from “Kirovtsa”. For this you need to make a bed of fine gravel (about 5 mm). Then to close it with plastic wrap (for sealing the seam) and press down the top cover, pre-cutting the cord until its upper edge.
