Easy and Cool DIY Projects for Your Garden/Backyard

Your garden is like an empty canvas waiting to turn into a beautiful piece of art. All that is required is an idea and a little bit of effort to execute it.

Contrary to what most people are thinking, you do not need to be a master of crafts to make your garden a more beautiful and more comfortable place.

The projects that we are going to present to you are simple and quick to do, and the more you do them, the better you will get at DIY crafts. So, let’s dig in!

Make a Wooden Path in Your Garden

To keep your garden or your backyard in good shape throughout the year, you need an easy way to access it even on rainy days. However, this can be a challenge, especially when the dirt in your garden turns into sloshy mud.

An easy way to solve this problem, that looks good at the same time, is to make a wooden path in your garden. If you live near a public forest, you can scavenge a fallen tree, cut the trunk into 2 inch thick disks and line your garden path with it. If not, you can buy these in a DIY store for cheap. It’s so easy, but it will transform your garden.

Plant Flowers in a Tree Trunk

Do you have an old tree in your backyard that presents a possible hazard and just doesn’t look too good? If you decide to cut it down, you can leave the trunk and do something amazing with it.

Go to your local store that sells garden supplies and buy some compost. Dig the middle of the tree trunk to create a hole, fill it with compost and plant flowers in it. They will soon start to thrive, and you will have a beautiful decoration for your garden.

Make a Small Pond with a Used Tire

This is one of my favorite projects because it is super easy, but the result is simply incredible. All you need to do it is an old truck or tractor tire. Cut the top of it, dig a hole in your garden and lay the tire in the hole. Use a plastic sheet to line the tire and the hole and cover the ends with dirt.

Now you can play with decorations. Line your pond with rocks and plant flowers or succulents in between. Fill the pond with tiny rocks to cover the nylon and make it more natural. You can even keep fish in there if you’re up for a bigger challenge!

Make a Birdhouse

Is there anything better than listening to bird songs all day long when spring comes? To ensure that happens, make a birdhouse just before spring. The materials you can use and shapes you can make are endless and are only limited by your creativity. Try to make it look as natural as you can, so the birds would feel at home and would settle in more quickly.
