Yard & Garden Ideas

Getting outside and enjoying the summer is something most of us like to do. Fixing up our yards and gardens is like spring cleaning but outside. I rounded up these projects from my Wednesday link parties to give you some ideas for your yards.

Personalized Garden Decor

Personalized Garden Decor from The DIY Dreamer. Love the way this looks!

Cute and easy  garden makers from My Turn.

This one is not outside but I just had to show it to you! It is the cutest thing, the kind of thing that makes womens' voices go up an octave when they talk about it, you know like when they talk to babies. This sweet little garden is in a teacup! That's right a teacup! Oh my how I want to make one! You will find more pics and info over at Salt Tree

Make a neat and nice tree ring, and Grandma Agnes' Attic did. 

Penny's Treasures has a backyard full of fun and whimsy! 

With A Blast: Birdhouse Planter {DIY}   #diy  #crafts  #garden

Bird houses are cute no matter what you do with them. I have to tell you that this bird house idea is a first for me, a Bird House Planter! Find instructions at With A Blast. 

This planter idea is also a first for me; Penny's Treasures made this vintage Grocery Cart Planter. 

My Oldest Two Varieties of Hostas In Need of Serious Thinning

A great way to save money on your landscape is to divide your plants. Summer Acres shows us How to Divide Hostas. 

Kathe With An E Wooden Fence Project

Do you have this type of fencing in your backyard? Kathe with an E has some fun ideas to decorate it. 

Do you have a flower 'bed'? Penny does! Penny's Treasures does it again! 

You need a bird feeder for your yard, here is an easy and thrifty idea from Second Chance To Dream. 

I really love this planting idea. What would you call it? Stacked pots? Anyway they are from Wesens-Art and this is a very nice project. 

Home Depot Zipper Pathway Reveal - It's Done! #Digin - The Wilderness Wife - Cooking, crafting & gardening in the North Maine Woods

Look at this pathway! It is called a Zipper Path and The Wilderness Wife has a tutorial. Great job!


You will never believe how this Cement Garden Balls are made. Really creative and I love them! I hope to actually make these one day, or talk the man of the house into it. See how you can make one over at Ellen's Creative Passage. 

Have a veggie garden and need a trellis idea? Summer Acres has one for you. 

This is a creative and fun way to display plants and use what you already have too. Check it out at Create Inspire Me

Need to create some ambiance outdoors?  What better way than with fire and this is one of the best ways I have seen! With A Blast can show you hoe to make one yourself. 


And last but certainly not least! How much fun would it be to have one of these in your backyard! they are becoming quite popular I hear and too much fun, it's like playing houe all over again. The DIY Dreamer has this post with lots of ideas for you.
