Green All Around
I don't claim to be a green thumb but I have been growing my garden every year. Mine is a perennial garden because it only gets easier every year! Green is also the theme of every other politically green thing to do inside and out but most of all for this beautiful planet we've inherited. We've been chartered to take care of it!

Mason Jar Herb Garden (hint - put small stones in bottom to allow the dirt to drain and you can monitor how much water is in there.. also for water use either, a long spout watering can, a spritz bottle or just shove a few ice cubes in there, they will water as they melt... no mess) put in a sunny spot so that herbs will thrive!

Wall garden using rain gutters
Rain Gutter planters! This would be Great for an herb garden!!!!!
Easily adaptable for smaller gardens. One of my favorite : affordable vertical garden idea, Using rain gutter as a planter on the wall.
Rain Gutter Garden! Addit'l suggestions from comments: 1 Add plastic cover for a mini hot house 2 Put perforated sheets in before dirt for drainage 3 Use hangers to permit gutters to lift off. Start seeds inside; move 3 ft sections outside at appropriate times. 4 Place them in off-set step manor, then add trailing plants at ends to cascade into gutter below 5 Add a drip water system for ease 6 Avoid gutters with lead-based paints or other toxins 7 Use salad greens or "shallow" plants

Vertical deck garden idea.
small space gardening; perfect for a corner of a patio and creates an outdoor wall.
I wonder how time consuming and expensive this would be to do on your own. It’s cute, though. This light and airy structure would be perfect for a small garden because it combines patio and outdoor space with lots of plantings. Called the ecocube, it is a vertical garden, and provides shade too. Made of sustainable cedar, it is contemporary but would fit into any outdoor setting. You can choose the size of the building, and the number of screens and planters. The positioning of the screens gives privacy and a sense of depth. The planters can fit on the outside and the inside. Designed by architects, they also do an ecospace which is a small modular structure that can sit at the end of your garden and serve as a studio, hideaway or office. It has a green roof system that can be planted with grass or sedum, recycled rubber flooring and light wood walls. (via A Natural Space in the Garden : TreeHugger)

DIY Outdoor Candle Lantern. Made from--get this!--a tuna can, a paint stick, and a thrift store hurricane glass! So crafty!!
also good for Halloween party outdoor lighting, a nice alternative to tiki torches.
Deck and Outdoor Living Tuna Can Lantern Inexpensive and easy way to make DIY outdoor lighting by re-purposing a tuna can. A dowel, paint or old broom stick, wood screw, copper fitting, and a thrift store glass hurricane is all that is needed. Simply drill a hole in the can and dowel to attach the dowel/paintstick and spray paint it. Once the paint is dry add the glass hurricane. Cost- $5.00 (Thanks Marlene!)
