Yard signs used during political campaigns are sometimes (with some justification) referred to as yard trash. A necessary evil. But there are upsides that you need to know about.
For some time I have had several of my target practice friends willing take yard signs. After the campaign they make perfect targets on the shooting range.
Here’s another upside to yard signs. When you plant shrubs and young trees often deer destroy your work and your investment. The wire frames from political signs make an excellent protective “fence” around your shrubs and plants. Take some twist ties and tie the wires together where they touch. If you have some whirly gigs, old DVD or computer disks, wind chimes, hang them from the horizontal part of the wire frame. Works like a charm – most of the time.
