16 Awesomely Unique Garden Ideas
I take a great deal of pride in how my garden looks. And although the garden beds and individual flowers all look great, I’ve been looking for a few ideas to add some unique elements into the mix. If you’re looking for a little garden inspiration yourself, today’s your lucky day. Here are 16 creative and pretty ideas to apply to your own garden!
1. Chest Of Drawers Planters
An old chest of drawers makes for a beautifully eclectic, tiered planter! You could either leave old wood as is for a weathered look, or paint the drawers like they’ve done here.
2. Flower Pot Planter
Make your own tipsy topsy tower of flower pots! It’s a great way to maximize the amount of flowers you can keep in your yard, especially when dealing with a small amount of space.
3. Cauldron Planter
How cute is this spin on a “cauldron” hanging over a “fire”?
4. Old Wagon Wheels
Old tractor wheels can be placed directly in the soil and be used to separate different plant types. So pretty!
5. Wheel As A Prop
Speaking of old wagon wheels, you can also use them as leaning props and surround them with flower pots and little planters.
6. Teacup Planters
How charming are these little succulent gardens housed in teacups? This would make such an adorable little grouping when placed directly in the garden or on an outdoor patio table.
7. Teacup Bird Feeder
Another great project using vintage teacups? You can make your own DIY bird feeder!
8. Stone Sitting Area
Create a serene sitting area on a bed of flat stones with a fire pit in the center!
9. Statue Garden
Handmade metal sculptures always add a whimsical vibe to any outdoor space.
10. Handmade Pergola
A handmade wood pergola is a great way to create a secluded, relaxing space within your yard.
11. Trough Planters
Make flower planters out of galvanized steel water troughs for an industrial yet country chic vibe.
12. Log Planters
Hollowed out log planters are super quick and cheap to make, and they create a charming, country feel!
13. String Lights
Solar-powered string lights are a great way to add an intimate feel to any outdoor space!
14. Wicker Basket Planters
Wicker baskets also make for inexpensive and pretty planters. I have three of them on my back deck at the moment!
15. Vertical Garden
Vertical gardens are extremely popular right now. They basically just involve hanging smaller pots or planters on a wall or rack of some sort. It’s a great way to bring a contemporary feel to an outdoor space.
Installing a pond isn’t necessarily the smallest project, but it can make for a wonderful statement if you have the space! Go big or go home, right?
