There's plenty of work outside to keep us busy all season long: planting, weeding, watering, pruning, deadheading, pest control...on and on it goes. We love it, it's the time of year we most look forward to--but it doesn't have to be all about toil and drudgery!

One way to keep motivated while enhancing the outdoor space is to feed our creative juices with simple to make, budget friendly projects. Working bit by bit, adding a couple little (or large) self-made pieces each year adds up in no time flat. Some will be chosen to beautify the yard, a few to add function, others will be geared to support growth and fruit production.

There are thousands of great tutorials and inspiring ideas to be found on the 'net...so many clever people sharing brilliant solutions and neat-to-know hacks! This section highlights what I've collected to date along with my own notes from personal experience, but it's nowhere near where I want it to be (yet). Some are practical, others more whimsical. There's a lot more to come so you might want to bookmark this page for future reference!
