Mattress springs

Katy, TX

After about 3 hours of dis-assembling an old mattress and having spings all over the place...I have found my first use for a few of them. Keeps the cats out (they love fresh soil, for pottying) and plant can vine around.

Hey that's a pretty good idea for keeping the squirrels out too...they just love to dig in my seedling pots.

It looks like it will be a good support for the plant as it grows.

Nice idea!! You'll have fun finding other places for the springs.

Hey, great idea. If you painted it with bright paint like perwinkle (blue/purple) it could be striking art with the plant. But there is nothing wrong with natural either!
