Get flash to fully experience Pearltrees
when we first moved to our house (three years ago today!), there was a tangled but beautiful rose bush precariously pulled back against the porch with a flimsy and small metal trellis. it did not take long for this mess to spill over the gravel, shortening the driveway by more than half. the thorns grabbed at our clothes each time we rolled our bikes past. we were also unable to keep disease and pests under control in this state. the trellises available for purchase were either the wrong size or too expensive. in order to keep this bush, we needed a low-cost diy solution. building simple cedar frames filled with mesh fencing ended up being the answer.
When you see so many pictures of productive gardens in big backyards, it's easy to forget that gorgeous gardens also happen in small yards and surprising places.
Inspired by Annette's Modern DIY Outdoor Planter post , Apartment Therapy reader Chris shows us all how easy this project was to recreate... Thank you for your post on Annette's modern DIY outdoor planter . I immediately went to Home Depot to replicate it in my barren back patio.
We're fans of any DIY that is simple, has great impact and uses supplies that are easily findable. So when we saw this great modern planter idea filled with easy to grow succulents we were intrigued. When we heard how simple it is to put together, especially in a small space like a back patio or deck, we were sold.
I’m happy to be taking part in a virtual book tour for Handmade Garden Projects , a new book from Timber Press and author Lorene Edwards Forkner.

Having a Ball Concrete spheres bring lasting beauty to any garden . Cast a half sphere at a time, using 10-, 12-, or 15-inch-diameter molds.
Let Spring Blooms Add Color Contrast Concrete planters are made using a small container and a large container as molds.
Creating an outdoor haven has never been so easy -- or inexpensive. By building a sofa from cinder blocks and adding art made from found materials, Michele Beschen fashioned a place to work on crafts, read, or bring family time outdoors.
I nominate "side yards" as some of the most under-exploited areas in the landscape!
O.K. Get ready for it … this one’s a doozy. Doozie?
April 28, 2012 When I spotted these colorful modular vertical planter systems at the Independent Garden Centers show, they reminded me of Uten.Silo , the classic 1969 wall storage containers designed for Vitra by Dorothee Becker. Their design cousin, Bellavaz, are modular self-watering planters with which one can get creative, arranging them in various patterns and shapes.
