easy garden diy projects

Gardening is a rewarding and therapeutic activity that brings beauty and tranquility to your home.

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or a beginner looking to try your hand at something new, DIY garden projects can add a personal touch to your outdoor space.

Here are a couple delightful projects to inspire you, including one that is perfect for involving children.

Vertical Pallet Garden

Vertical gardens are a fantastic way to maximize space and add a unique element to your garden. Using a wooden pallet, you can create a stunning vertical garden that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing..

Materials Needed: wooden pallet, sandpaper, landscape fabric, staple gun, potting soil and your choice of plants (herbs, succulents, or flowers)

Instructions: Sand down the pallet to remove any rough edges and splinters. This will make it safer to handle and give it a more polished look. Staple the landscape fabric to the back, bottom, and sides of the pallet. This will hold the soil in place. Turn the pallet over and fill it with potting soil, ensuring it is evenly distributed.

Plant: Choose your plants and carefully place them in the gaps between the slats. Water them thoroughly. Prop the pallet upright in your desired location, ensuring it is stable. You now have a beautiful vertical garden that can brighten up any space.

DIY Fairy Garden for Children

A fairy garden is a whimsical project that can captivate the imagination of children and adults alike. It’s an excellent way to introduce kids to gardening while allowing them to create a magical world.

Materials Needed: shallow container or pot, potting soil, small plants (miniature ferns, moss, small flowers), fairy garden accessories (tiny houses, figurines, pebbles, etc.), craft supplies for making additional accessories

Instructions: Select a shallow container or pot with good drainage. Fill it with potting soil and decide where you want to place the plants and accessories. Encourage children to think about the layout and design.

Plant: Help the kids plant the small plants in the soil. Choose plants that are easy to maintain and suitable for small spaces. Add fairy garden accessories like tiny houses, figurines, and pebbles. Let the children use craft supplies to make additional decorations, such as miniature benches or signs.

Care: Teach children how to care for their fairy garden by watering it appropriately and placing it in a suitable location with the right amount of sunlight
