These raised gardens with stone have softer, more organic lines.
If you’re looking for big planters at a good price…well, good luck. Ha! This is a great idea using buckets to create outdoor planters:
Do you have a big empty wall on the outside of your home? This modern wood slat wall is super sharp:
Saying “sharp” makes me feel like my mother. 😂
This is another one I may try — putting permanent poles in the ground for a hammock:
We have a metal stand that falls apart when we move it so this would work so much better!
I’m a hydrangea NUT (go here to see my tips on growing hydrangea plants) and last year I started growing them in our patio planters — yes, you can do that!:
Keep in mind they need more water in planters than in the ground — and I plant mine in the ground in the fall instead of bringing them in.
This is another project on my to do list! Because we don’t have any mature trees around the patio, we’ll have to make these cement filled planters to hold outdoor lights:
The bonus is, if you don’t fill them completely, you can still use them as planters. (As Shannon did here.)
I love this little stair step flower planter idea that would be great for herbs as well:
What a great knock off outdoor side table — for a TON less!:
If you have a brick house you’re thinking of painting, this is a great tutorial:
There’s something about a white porch with black accents…I love it!
I love a good upcycle! Can you tell what this plant stand was before?:
I really loved this idea too — a wood bench for the front yard with house numbers:
It also serves as a planter! How cute!
If your outdoor space is limited, go up with your garden!
Fill them with wave petunias that will spill out with tons of color. This is another great way to grow herbs.
And last, but not least, this is a helpful tutorial for adding a DIY flagstone pathway:
SO MANY great ideas! Every time I share a round up of my fellow blogger’s projects I walk away with a longer to do list.
