Use tyres of the same size.
As a very keen gardener and the owner of a garage business, I am always looking for legal ways of using my old scrap. Tyres are now costing me £1 each for disposal and when you fit as many as we do in Halifax, West Yorkshire you can see that any other way of using the old ones will help the environment and also my bottom line.
There are several ways to use old ones for the garden, but this blog will be a “compost heap”.You can visit any Auto center near your location, and they will only be too willing to sort you out with the same size tyres that you will need to stack up for a compost heap.
I experimented with a couple of sizes, my garden is quiet large, so I used a size 225/45/17, or you could go for 205/55/16, it all depends on your ability and state of health, but your dealer will only be too glad to give you the old tyres that you need. What I did then, was to lay down the first two one on the top of the other and then started filling them with your garden and house- hold waste,(excluding meat and animal waste). It is best using garden waste such as old veg leaves and other mature greenery, keep it organic.
If you live in Halifax, West Yorkshire Pellon Tyres will only is glad to sort you out with old tyres. Free of charge.
As the tyres fill up, you can just add another tyre on top and carry on to the desired height. When you have reached your limit you can cover the top to keep the rain out if you live in a wet part of your country or leave the top off, remember a compost heap built from old tyres must be kept moist to allow the composting to take place. The old tyres are made of the perfect material to retain the moisture you require for complete composting.
