Eco-Friendly DIY Projects For The Garden

If you have a knack for gardening, then chances are you don’t mind getting your hands dirty. So how about we put on our creative caps today and combine our passion for gardening with some DIY skills? We have compiled a list of eco-friendly DIY garden projects that will indeed have you enjoying your time creating as well as reaping the benefits as you use them. 

The Rustic Log Planter 

You wouldn’t have thought to bring a log you come across in the woods home with you until now. We suggest that now when you see a log, clean it up and bring it home. It is a splendid DIY garden project in the making because all you have to do is cut up the top, and you will have a rustic log planter for your garden. 

The Enchanting Trellis 

If climbers and scramblers are your favorite plant type, then you know the use of a trellis. However, this time, you should cancel the idea of buying one and get creative with making your own. It is a matter of time and creativity, from an old door and window frames lying in the attic to a gorgeous contemporary trellis. 

The Boot To Good Use 

Have old boots that have worn out and seen plenty of adventure back in the day? How about upcycling them for your planters? Simply clean them out, fill them with garden pebbles or soil as per your preference, and give your small, flowering plants a new home. The best is that you can place them both indoors and outdoors for décor purposes. 

The Basket Herb Hangers 

Creating raised garden beds for your little herb garden can be a hassle. If you have pets in the house, you will prefer to have them at an unreachable level to keep both the pet and the plant safe. 

A better way to go about it is to upcycle some old baskets. Tie them together vertically and hang them on the highest tree branch to plant your herbs in them. 

The Pallet Path 

Use old wooden pallets or floorboards of your home to create a quirky little pallet path in your garden. You can place as many and in any pattern you like. 

This way, you can easily cover any garden beds that don’t have grass to create a pathway along the edge. It has significant practical usage, but it also looks beautiful, like you’re stepping out of a fairytale forest.
