I really wanted to do something with the garden behind my building this summer, but the time has gone past really quickly. Hopefully I will get a dry weekend soon where me and the other residents can get out there and do something to at least tidy it up a bit.
And sticking with the theme of a garden for today – I wish I could get a photo this good of the fox that visits my garden regularly. Unfortunately I have not had my camera handy when he appears. Next time I see him I need to go down and see if I can get a good pic.
This bench is really cool – and fairly easy to make with a few simple items from a hardware store, bit of paint and some cushions. I really like the Aztec design they painted on the wall behind it too.
I am always a fan of recycling and reusing – and this mini-fence is great, using old hoses as a border divider. Kinda cool and totally customisable as well!
When I have a garden to myself I am going to have loads of flowers! Bit of a cottage garden, with some structured borders, but definitely a riot of colour throughout the year.
Gonna be fairly self-sufficient with a market garden and grow my own fruits & veggies. Loads of tips online to help grow food from seeds, as well as regrow veggies from scraps.
I would absolutely LOVE to have a water feature of some sort in my garden. I don’t mind whether it’s a pond, a stream or a fountain. I love the sound of trickling water!!!!
I think this is a really cool sign post and I want to create my own version using scraps of wood that I find washed up on the beaches near where I live – and with the place names from my favorite books. I have one that I collected the last time I went to Severn Beach, I think I might paint that one first and start my little collection from there. Then once I have a garden that is worthy, I can nail them all to a post. Wonder which book and place-name I should choose first?!
This is a nifty idea for sprucing up any concrete slabs you may have in your garden. And for only the cost of a few cans of spray paint! You could make your own template or buy a cheap concrete path form from a hardware store.
A tree house is generally a must have when it comes to a great garden – and this might be the easiest way to achieve it – reusing a cabin/bunk bed! It can be used as a treehouse, a stargazing platform, and I saw one that was used as extra planting space. Very versatile and its recycling!
This DIY Outdoor Music Station is fun and will keep kids entertained for hours! Always a good thing. I know my little sis and niece would absolutely love it!
And finally, what garden would be complete without a fire pit – and what and epic one this is! Cool huh?!
Have you got anything that you would like in your dream garden?
