How to Build a Backyard Pergola: Simple DIY Woodworking Project

Looking for a simple DIY project for the weekend? All you need is an old pitchfork, a primitive birdhouse, some paint, and you can build yourself a unique birdhouse for your backyard. And it's mobile so you don't have to mow around it :) What do you think?

This would make a fun weekend DIY project :)  All you need to do is stack cinder blocks in whatever fashion you like and fill in the empty wholes with plants. Pretty simple and would make a great addition to a backyard patio or garden :)

Still not sure about this one, but...... BAT HOUSE: Why build a house to attract bats to your backyard? For starters, a small bat can capture up to 1,000 mosquitos in just one hour. I happen to love bats. Once, I found an injured one, befriended it while I nursed it back to health, and then freed it when it was well enough to return to nature. They are not creepy or anything to fear.
