If you have time and space:

Sliced Wood Garden Wood Path

Make a unique looking patio or walkway with different size logs sliced thin. Requiring a chain saw, you will need to cut various sized logs and place them in a random pattern. You can either fill with sand or let moss grow between them. This is the perfect DIY to create that woodsy feel to your property.

Simplicity of Composting

If you want to start composting to make fertilizer and have a small area where you can’t fit a composter than this is the perfect place for you. This compact composter will allow you to compost right on your counter top. Enjoy natural fertilizer for your house plants to grow without dangerous herbicides.

DIY Hanging Herb Garden

Looking for fresh herbs all year round?

This DIY herb garden will allow you to grow your favorite herbs while saving space. This design allows for 20 pots of herbs but you can design yours for more or less. This simple project will help you cook your favorite meals without having to buy your herbs in your local grocery store saving you money over the long run.

How to turn a Pallet into a Garden

Another space-saving design is this pallet garden. While the herb garden is great for tiny herbs, this pallet garden can grow larger plants and give you a fresh set of vegetables for your kitchen. This is perfect for those that do not have the room for a large garden and you can even recycle a pallet from being thrown in the landfill.

Eco-Friendly Weed Killer

If you have a bunch of weeds in your flowerbeds and don’t know how to get rid of them without using dangerous chemicals, you are in luck. Skip the Round-Up and other weed killers that cause cancer and go right to your pantry. Look for vinegar, that’s right, vinegar can kill weeds, it may not kill them all but it can kill the majority of them. Also use caution around ornamental plants as it could kill ornamental plants as well.

    First off I absolutely love this group that you gathered all up together. Something else about your post intrigued me as well. you mention switching from blogger (which I use by default) to WordPress. Now that’s it’s been a few years you seem to have your own domain. How do you feel and what would you recommend.

    As far as my garden. Last year I let my cucumbers get too ripe this year I plan on trying to pick and pickle. I’m hoping with a raised garden bed and sunflowers near by that till be enough to have them off the ground !

      Hi Katrina 🙂
      Wordpress gives a lot more options than blogger does. There are some downfalls with switching. I lost a lot of traffic at first. It took awhile to build it back up. I don’t know if i would recommend switching. it really depends on what you want out of your blog.

      Have fun with your garden & pickling the cucumbers
