5 Easy to Grow Mosquito-Repelling Plants
Love this idea to make the fence prettier.
This site has lots of DIY outdoor furniture. I want to try this outdoor daybed. Or more correctly, have Stephen try make this outdoor daybed if we have a chance this summer. I'd add trellis so vines can climb it.
I have to try this Weed Spray. You can make 3 gallons for around $4.00 and they say it works better than Round Up & kills the weeds/stray grass on first application. One gallon of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, 1/2 c table salt, 1 tsp Dawn. Mix and pour into a smaller spray bottle.
Pennies are supposed to repel slugs. If this is true I need this in my garden.
Peaceful Seating if you'd like to add a swing that hangs from the upper beams of a pergola like this one, make sure the structure is sturdy enough to support the weight. The rafters shade this swing, and vines covering the structure eventually will provide even more natural protection from the sun. This a beautiful back garden area with all the pretty flowers.
Pergola with a swing - even better
Wow. Love how the blue path sets off the other flowers.
