Gardens come in a spectacular variety of types and kinds. From simple vegetable gardens to elaborate displays of grandeur. But what is a garden without the “decorations” that defines the garden. So to make your garden look even more beautiful than it looks now here is what I am bringing to you: make your very own log planter and also how to decorate a log from the garden with mushrooms.

Step1. Don’t have extra space for growing your favorite fruit? Making hanging baskets is a great idea to let you have a big harvest on small patios.

Step2. Grow sweet strawberry in a vertical PVC tube is great solution for small garden or yard. Vertical planter will save you a lot of space, at the same time keep plants out of reach from garden insect pests.

Step3. Build a strawberry garden in old rain gutters, they could be mounted on the side of a shed or garden fence

Hydrangeas are flowering deciduous plants that can range in size from small bushes to larger tree-like varieties. If you want to grow your own hydrangea plants, you can produce new specimens by growing hydrangeas from cuttings. Multiple propagation methods exist depending on whether you own the mother plant and how many cuttings you want to root.
Most of us look at a fallen tree and see firewood. But wait! The sun will keep you warm if you harness it’s energy and it will still be there tomorrow to do the same. Burn a log and it’s gone forever! Firewood? We don’t think so!
What says “I like you” more than a concrete cupcake? They look sweet and are half-baked in a humorous way. In terms of potential holiday table decor and DIY gifts, these little treats — one of many in the new book “Concrete Garden Projects” — have all the ingredients.

Concrete Garden ProjectsPart of the appeal of Malin Nilsson and Camilla Arvidsson’s book is simplicity: Most of the pots, vases, candle holders, stepping stones and decorative figurines in the book were created using the same easy steps: Find an interesting mold, fill it with concrete, let it dry. If you’ve picked your molds well, the results look great.

Step 4: Plant your seeds.
Take stock of your project area and the paver size, type and quantities you’ll need to complete your path. The instructions here are for laying a path 20′ long and 3′ wide, but can be easily scaled up or down depending on your space. If you know the length and width of the path you’re creating, finding the square footage is a simple matter of multiplying the length by the width—in this case, 20′ long by 3′ wide, giving us a total area of 60 square feet.
Chances are your Dad is the no-nonsense type who doesn’t like to waste time on things he doesn’t care about. That doesn’t mean he doesn’t like gardening, it means that digging, tilling, weeding, and watering are just chores that take him away from things he’d rather be doing. If you want to get him out in the garden, you should plant an easy care garden with rugged, sturdy plants that are drought, pest, and heat-tolerant and don’t need a lot of care and attention.
Are you looking for an easy and unique way to grow your own herbs? I have been wanting to make this topsy turvy herb garden for a few years now. I honestly thought it was going to be a lot harder to make than what it really was. It has probably been one of the easiest projects I have ever made. I also love that I am growing my own herbs and I don't have to go buy them at a grocery store! You can get the materials from : amazon

A sunflower house is an easy and exciting project for you and your kids. I am currently growing my second one in the same spot. I marked off an 8'x8' square. I double dug a furrow, hoed a shallow moat around the furrow, and put in sunflowers which I had sprouted into seedlings elsewhere. I alternate a mammoth variety which grows about eight feet, and a small variety which grows about 4 feet. The tall ones impress the kids by growing taller than they are and they provide abundant shade. The kids enjoy looking closely at the flowers, eye-to-eye, on the shorter ones.

Both concrete and brick pavers make a simple, handsome border and work well as edging material too. They're ideal when you want a wide border that keeps grass out of the garden, yet allows flowers and other plants to spill over without intruding onto the grass. You're less likely to chop them up with the lawn mower.
I shared yesterday that I was working on a diy garden project that was for the birds! Our Lowes Creative Ideas Network challenge this month was to create a diy bird feeder or birdbath. After Matt’s failed attempt at creating a bird feeder, I just went ahead and purchased a cute feeder from Lowes. However, I had this fun idea to create a planter and bird bath in one and today I’ll show you how to make your own!

Boxwood is very easy to propagate. In the spring, take stem cuttings, 6 inches in length, and remove the lower inch of leaves. For best effect, group five to seven stems together, as pictured, to resemble an entire plant. Plunge this group into soil that has been amended with copious quantities of peat moss or leaf mold. Pack the soil firmly around the stems. Keep the cuttings moist, and you will have new, rooted plants in about six weeks.

Before You Plant 
Stand the basket on a wide pot to keep it stable during preparation. Then add a specially made basket liner.
Cut Out Planting Holes
Lay a circle of plastic bag over the bottom of the liner to act as a reservoir. Cut out a few evenly spaced crosses around the sides of the liner.
What a cute and cleaver idea! Clear around the planting area, for productive growth of the beans. Greate hideaway for kids in the yard, leave the grass in the center.
An absolutely magical lighting feature. Truly like floating stars since the wires almost disappear. My visiting friends couldn't keep their hands off them.
The best lighting string I ever bought and since I ordered them from Amazon the selection, service and delivery couldn't be faster. I love them.
Step 1 : is to make a barrel shape out of chicken wire or metal fencing (which we already had on hand). Just cut to size and use wire to hold it in shape.
Step 2 : line the sides with bird netting to keep the soil in.
Step 3 : placed a good amount of straw as a bottom layer. On top of the straw goes a layer of compost.
As anyone who has snorkeled can attest, the cool aquamarine light underwater casts an enchanted glow on everything in its domain. Perhaps this explains the allure of water gardens. Small freshwater gardens are fun to create and simple to care for. And all you need are a few floating or submerged greens in a vintage aquarium, an apothecary jar, or a sleek glass cylinder.

This 3½-foot-tall box, is an especially easy project, taking only a few hours to build. Just buy a ready-made redwood window box at the nursery and attach sturdy legs. Then all you have to do is fill it with soil and plant.
This is a portable greenhouse, good to start seeds or small vegetables  (basil, parsley, salad, cilantro...). it's really fast and easy to built, and super economic and ecologic, I made mine all out of scraps and in little more than an hour.
Great idea! How exceiting to be able to watch birds build their nest and hatch their babies right from my own window. Love the simple yet sturdy construction. The natural wood can be left as is, or finished if desired. The instructions gave ideas for placement, and it stuck easily to my window with very secure suction cups. you can get the Nest Box from Amazon
 The whole system only took about 30 minutes to install. I had never dealt with any plumbing at all before and it was extremely easy. The snap nozzle at the end of the hose is great and quick if I need to use the other end of the hose for something else. It's great! You can get the Snip-n-Drip Soaker System from amazon.
Gardens come alive when butterflies visit. They’re fun to watch, and they’re fascinating for kids, who can learn how butterflies transform from eggs to caterpillars, and from pupas to adults. A raised butterfly island bed will attract these winged guests to your property. Keep a camera and garden journal handy to observe them, or just sit back and enjoy the colorful show.

When to Plant : Plant The crowns in early-mid spring, as soon as the soil can be worked. Keep the asparagus patch free of weeds, especially for the first couple of years.
Watering : Water frequently as crowns get established. After a few years, supplemental water should be required only during periods of drought.
If you do this in your backyard remember to be careful you may need to ad reinforcements underneath. Pallets aren't made to be walked on just to hold evenly distributed weight.
When to Plant : Extremely frost sensitive, corn planted in soils cooler than 55 degrees (65 for super-sweet varieties) fails to germinate or has very poor germination. Direct-sow only after night temperatures are consistently in the 50s. Plant in blocks of at least 3 rows, at least 3 feet long apiece, to ensure best pollination. Hand-pollinate by gently shaking plants toward one another if you cannot devote this much space.
Most patios take time, and days of effort, to build. But a small, detached patio like the one pictured here comes together quickly with minimal effort.
Think of the possible uses for this circle of bricks. You can tuck it into a perennial border. Or place it in a remote corner of your garden, where you can linger at day's end over a glass of wine, or on Sunday morning with a latte while perusing the papers.

I half expected these things not to work and out plants would be dead after returning from a holiday vacation. Surprisingly, as simple as these are they worked great. Plants kept with constant moisture. Now we leave them in all the time and just refill the vases. Someone should make a tank that can clip on the outside of the pot. Only note is that you need to fill the ceramic plug completely full with water and immerse the tubes to ensure the capillary action works to pull water into the spike.
Starting Seeds Tips:
Provide a proper home to your seeds. Seeds want more than plain old garden soil. I normaly use a Seed Starting Mix, or Peat Soil Pellets Seeds Starting Plugs that expand with water. Always read the seed packet manual. It'll tell you when to start the seeds. or when to move the plants outside, or info on sun requirements, spacing .... Conveniently, most seedlings like the same temperature: between 65°F and 72°F (18°C and 22°C). you can regulate soil temperature by placing a Heat Mat under the tray. Water is vital. But if young leaves get wet, it can lead to rot. So use a pitcher with a narrow spout to apply water directly to the peat.
