  1. Edge Your Garden: If you garden edge, this helps to define a border between your lawn or your flower bed that is nearby. It also helps to prevent any soil erosion that might have been in your garden bed. There are many edging materials to try including bricks, stones or even concrete, and can be installed within an afternoon. If you are thinking of looking for a more eco-friendly take on edging, try a wine bottle project. The colorful glass will reflect sunshine and create a unique look for a garden that is sure to stand out amongst the rest.

For a festive touch, you can hang patio lights on the post to illuminate the night. Be sure to anchor the posts firmly into the ground before you hang everything to make sure it’s secure. If you want to go bold, pick a fun or loud print to use or use a natural print and add a fun color ribbon to tie your curtains back.

  1. Decorate With Plants:  When it’s time to select new plants for your garden, you have several options but they can also be out of your budget. Save your money for the plants by recycling old tires into a whimsical planter instead of buying store-bought containers. You can use chicken wire and landscaping fabric to cover the hole at the base, then paint or stack your new planters and arrange them in your yard for a playful display.

  1. Deck Railing: It might be essential to have a deck railing depending on how high your deck is but there are other options to consider before just putting in a railing itself. A popular feature right now is to add a tinted glass in a deck railing because it is strong, safe, and also adds flair to your outdoor space.
