The plastic bottle has long ceased to be exclusively designed for industrial recycling and has become not only a material for creativity, but also a multifunctional building material. In particular, it is possible to make original fences in a country or a private plot from a plastic bottle. And the types of fences, which are a plastic bottle, vary from a low curb to a capital fence.
Mini fence: visual zoning and decor
The simplest version of the fence is a curb or mini-fence of bottles, half or more dug in the ground. Typically, this way zoned space on the site, protect the flower beds or garden paths, form unusual flower beds. Borders from bottles can perform a purely decorative function.
To make such a fencing, it is enough to dig in bottles, previously filled with sand or earth, along the perimeter of the flower bed or other zone that is required to be visually distinguished. Such, at first sight simple, even primitive curb can be made a highlight of registration of a site if to consider some nuances. So, you can "play" with the shape, size and color of the bottles, alternating them according to a pre-designed scheme. An interesting effect can be achieved if different fillers for bottles are used. For example, some of them fill with light sand, some - dark. You can take as a filler pebbles of different sizes and even broken glass. Unexpectedly, the bottles will look, in which different kinds of fillers are combined.
In order to protect beds or flower beds, use plastic bottles, stringing them on a wire. As a rule, these are low fences - only one level. However, you can string bottles in several rows, attaching them with wire knots - you will get a tall and relatively strong fence.
Fence from plastic canvas
Interesting technology of making a fence with your own hands made of plastic cloth. To get such a cloth, you need large bottles( preferably two-liter).Removing the bottom and top, the rest of the bottle should be cut into two rectangles. Rectangles are connected to each other in a continuous cloth, using a stapler. The resulting canvas is attached to posts installed along the perimeter of the fence.
To make such a fence, on the perimeter of the fence put the poles, to which cross racks-racks are attached and thickly greased with building glue. Cleanly washed, dry, sand-filled bottles are installed on racks.
Alternatively, you can not glue the bottles to the shelves, but at the same distance, screw the plugs from the plastic bottles to the slats. The bottles are screwed into the plugs, and then their bottoms are fixed with nails to the top rail. In this case, the bottles are not filled with sand, or they are filled only up to half.
covers You can use not only whole bottles, but also lids from them, to make a fence. The main problem here is to collect the required amount of material. The manufacture of fences around an average of 10-15 thousand caps. Tough work - in the holes drill holes, then thread them on the wire. Preferably thread the lid is not chaotic, and in advance to think which of them can be made up a pattern - then your fence will look aesthetically pleasing.
A capital "brick" fence made of plastic bottles
A cement or clay-sand fence using plastic bottles is probably the most difficult to build, however the results are worth the time and effort. In order to make such a fence, first make a markup. Then on the perimeter of the future fence at a distance of a meter and a half from each other digging in the pillars. You can pour the foundation around the perimeter, and you can just limit yourself to thorough cleaning and leveling the area.
Clean and dry bottles are filled with sandy-clay or cement mortar, and then spread in rows, like bricks, pouring between the rows of cement or the same sandy-clay mortar. Bottles need to be laid out with bottoms, then outside the fence will adorn cute "flowers" that can be painted in different colors.
If the capital fence from plastic bottles is planned to be made high, then it is recommended to spread it in two stages - first to a height of not more than one and a half meters, then, when the clutch seizes, spread the top part of the fence.
Mesh from plastic bottles
Perhaps, the most original way of making a fence of plastic bottles is netting. The plastic bottle is cut off the top and bottom, the resulting cylinder is cut with scissors in a spiral not more than three millimeters wide. From the resulting long "ropes" weave a grid using the same technology as fishing nets. Pulling this grid between the pillars, you can build an original fence.
Advantages of plastic bottles as a material for the construction of fences - their durability and economy. In addition, if you approach creativity creatively, the result can be obtained non-standard and original.
