With warmer weather finally arriving we have spent the last couple weekends getting our backyard landscaped. We have done everything ourselves and have turned it from pretty much nothing (just a LOT of dirt!) into something that the kids can go out and play in. AND of course we have added some pretty flowers 🙂
Be sure to follow me on Pinterest for more of my Gardening posts!
We have a lower area where we planted sod and a flower garden. Then on the upper level we did mainly mulch. To add some color to that we build these fun Flower Boxes. VERY easy and inexpensive to make too! You can easily grab the supplies from your local Home Depot.
What you need?
Wooden planks (we used 8 inch high) + nails
All of which can be gotten for under $15 at Home Depot! And yet makes such a BIG difference! All you have to do is measure and cut your wood, and nail the edges together to get your box. We did two different sizes, 3×2 and 3×3. Once you have your square you can place, fill with the soil and plant! Such a simple and easy DIY project but I think it makes a HUGE difference in the look of the backyard.
We made three for the upper area. We also did a nice little flower garden to the side of our sod, most of which we got from Home Depot, they have some very pretty flowers!
