With the weather warming up, many of us will once again be spending time in the garden. Fortunately, it’s one of the few activities that everyone can still enjoy outside the house. Whether you want to grow some fresh herbs and veggies for the summer or simply get some fresh air for a few hours, there are many reasons to tend your garden this season. If you’ve already done all your pruning and planting, here are a few DIY projects that anyone can do.
Install Window Boxes
Some windows are just begging to be decorated with flowers that you can admire from inside and out. This is the perfect way to add instant curb appeal and if you already have them at your home, then it’s time to fill the window boxes with soil. There’s no better way to give the exterior of your home a burst of energy than decorating it with a few of your favorite plants.
Make Your Own Compost
There are plenty of benefits to composting at home and the best part is, it’s so easy that anyone who has a little outdoor space can do it. By throwing your food scraps in a compost pile, you’ll be reducing waste and ultimately adding nutrients to the soil in your garden, meaning you can use less fertilizer and chemicals. You can easily buy a compost bin online or make one at home if you feel like putting your skills to the test.
Build a Bird Feeder
For those who love listening to the birds sing, you can draw them into your garden all summer long with a homemade bird feeder. There are plenty of step-by-step guides available online that require minimal materials and are so simple, even the kids can make their own.
Add Garden Décor
Of course, there’s nothing like simply relaxing in the garden. A small seating area surrounded by all the vegetation can be an ideal spot to have breakfast or read a book in peace and quiet. You can also decorate your garden with a birdbath or sculpture to make it even more special.
