summer is not yet here, but already we have done some major changes to our garden.
our house was built in the 1920s, and i think that the yard was neglected for the past 90 years! well, maybe i am exaggerating a little, but it was definitely not cared for during the past 5 years when it was a rental property.
what began as a section of trees surrounded by weeds was transformed into a 14′ x 14′ garden in the corner of our backyard.
as for the fence … let’s not go there yet. it is in quite a state, to say the least! we have so many boards that are missing that until we can replace it all next year, we are finding temporary solutions.
garden diy number three was to camouflage a particular nasty section of with our old screen door. then i hung a ceramic bird feeder on a tree stump that *g* recently had to chainsaw out of our garden.
my fourth diy was to utilize an old birdcage of ours. (which, consequently, so did katie on skunkboy! i swear that i did it first! ;-)) after painting it white, i hung it in a nicer section of our garden. i plan to fill it with herbs.
have you any garden makeover tips to share?
