We decided to use what we had in abundance to mark our garden rows last year. So we painted the veggie names on large rocks we have all around our house and yard. We simply found some flat-ish rocks and wrote the names on with a paint marker. I added the smiley face because cucumbers are my favorite.

I sprayed them with a clear coat so that the labels do not wash away. I was able to use them again this year. We simply place them on the end of the rows and voila, your rows are clearly marked.

I decorated a bird bath with small pumpkins, gourds, dried leaves, twigs, and a pot of winter flowers. Other holiday decor can be used. I simply placed a pot of flowers in the birdbath, arranged decorations around the pot, and filled in with natural dried items, pine boughs, etc. A festive ribbon and bow could be tied at the base of the birdbath to add more color.

Total Time: 1 hr

    I have been wanting a birdbath for quite a while and was not willing to pay the $50 that the stores wanted; so, I bought a cheap $10 plastic birdbath and spray painted it with Krylon Plastic paint.

    If you have a summer home, as well as a winter home, the garden can really get away from you! We go to the dollar store and purchase lots of colorful plastic flowers.

    We "plant" these instead of real ones, in both gardens, and have a beautiful garden, with minimal work, all season!

    Use items that are otherwise collecting dust and garage sale finds to decorate your outdoor space. We found this sewing machine in a trash pile and purchased the table for $1 at a garage sale.

    It is easy to make the ordinary look special. I have Sedums growing in vast amounts, too much! I broke several off and simply just stuck in the dirt around a tree.

    On our spring vacation, hubby and I went to a beach with LOTS of beautifully rounded stones, and I gathered some up to put around the statues and other garden ornaments in my apartment garden.

    Really the only decor I use are the beautiful butterflies and bees that come around to visit.

    It's a gorgeous day here in Salem, OR, so my decorating bug got to me. I set up some veggie carriers and some milk carton cubes outside, and got my durable snails out.

    Remember that natural objects can be a part of your decoration. You can have clusters of rocks you have gathered in a container - Or, in the summer, sea shells...

    Just got a small bird figurine for a dollar - I put such items in the flower bed in the front of the apartment to decorate them and fill them in.

    We were on our way home from Toronto, stopped in a small town east of Toronto and spotted this creation. We all thought it was awesome. Just had to share it.

    At a recent auction, we spotted this red watering can. At once, we realized it would be useful and also very nice to look at in the flower garden. We were fortunate as it sold very reasonably. It has already brought much enjoyment and motivation to work in the flower beds.
