February 20, 2015

Azure Water of Leesburg, FL cares about the environment.  We use recycled PET plastic and twenty five percent of our bottle material is plant based. We understand the necessity to be conscious of our environment and want to help you find more ways to reuse our bottled water bottles.

Have you wanted to create a garden or grow some of your own flowers? Do you feel like you don’t have enough space? Maybe you live in an apartment and don’t have a place to build a garden. We have the answer with our bottled water bottle hanging vertical garden. Keep reading to see how to create your own.

Basic Bottle Planter

Here are a few easy steps to create the most basic bottled water bottle planter:

Materials: Scissors, plastic bottle, ruler, rubber band and muslin cloth (cotton fabric that is porous.)

Plastic Bottle Garden Tips


  • Mark the bottle halfway, just somewhere close to the middle
  • Cut the bottle on the mark
  • Take off the cap
  • Take the cloth and cover the mouth of the bottle. Secure with a rubber band
  • Take the top half of the bottle and fill it with dirt about halfway up
  • Take a small plant and put it on top of the dirt. Take more dirt and fill in around the edges making sure to keep about one inch of space between the dirt and top of the container.
  • Put the top half of the bottle into the bottom half.

Now, you have created a quick and easy bottle planter.

Feel free to decorate the bottle any way you want to spruce up the look of your garden. Some additional items you could use are rocks in the bottom of the bottle below the dirt or even color the bottles themselves.

We hope you enjoyed our quick tutorial on how to recycle your bottled water bottles into planters. This works great outdoors on a patio or even near a large window that receives lots of sunlight. If you choose to create your garden indoors, make sure to prevent drainage below your vertical bottles.
