I love the garden. The only thing I love more than the garden is cool stuff for the garden. The garden is a work of art and building and maintaining the living organisms inside takes patience, a little zen, and some elbow grease.
I have been doing some research and want to highlight some of my favorite ‘hacks for the garden’. I am working on an ‘ultimate garden hacks’ post and will share it later in the month. For now, please enjoy this teaser:
- Make Your Own Compost or Mulch
Materials: Eggshells, old greens, leaves, carrots, etc.
Steps: Let it rot until you can’t stand it anymore, mix with soil, and enjoy!
- Put Old Furniture in the Garden
Materials: Old bed, chairs, buckets, you name it!
Steps: Plant and enjoy!
- Make a Garden Gate or Garden ‘Threshold’
Materials: Literally anything you want from around the house.
Steps: Glue or nail to a wooden frame, install in front of garden.
- Bring Some of Your Garden Inside
Materials: A chair or two, rocks, a big plastic ‘base’ and some plants.
Steps: Place the ‘base’ somewhere inside, build your garden inside of it.
- Dig a Small Pond (Ok this one is a bit harder, I will admit)
Materials: A shovel, thick plastic waterproof lining, rocks, plants, water.
Steps: Dig, dig, dig, line hole with plastic, fill up with water and build garden around it.
That’s all for now! More to come soon!
