10 Genius Gardening Ideas from our Favorite Pinterest Boards

As the weather warms up, it is a great time to get back to work on your Houston garden. We have gathered some of our favorite ideas from Pinterest.

1. We love this idea. There is something so rustic about the look of recycled cans and an old ladder. The cans are a great way to add a pop of color to your garden. When you are cooking, you can bring the cans inside to cut the exact amount of herbs needed for your recipes! Pin credit: Simple Bites

2. Pallets are “the thing” on Pinterest lately. We have seen so many great idea on how to upscale and recycle them. You can dismantle one to create a beautiful pathway in your garden. It is an easy and inexpensive way to add details outside. Pin credit: Signature Furniture Rental.

3. This is such a creative way to show off your potted plants. It takes the traditional terra cotta plants, but makes them unique and creates an eye catching piece for your yard. Pin credit: Krysanthe

4. We thought this was a great way to feed your vegetables without having to buy plant food! Simply adding the egg to the planter adds a good amount of nutrients for the plant. Pin Credit: Redbook

5. The kids will love this idea! It is something that is easy to do and the kids can find enjoyment out of it for a long time. They can see how the birds use the yarn to add to their nests. Wouldn’t it be beautiful to see the pops of color in the trees? Pin credit: Think Crafts

6. How frustrating is it to grow beautiful fruit, but squirrels eat them before you get a chance to enjoy? We think this is a great idea for keeping the pesky squirrels away and recycling those used fruit containers. Pin credit: Root Simple

7. We love that the warm summer sun warms the rocks for you! This is a great and unique way to clean off your feet after working in the garden. Pin credit: NatureB4

8. This is such a great idea for continuing to enjoy those beautiful bouquets you have at home. We love that you buy the bouquet once, but the flowers do not go to waste after a week. Pin credit: Alternative Gardening

9. What an easy way to save on electricity! Not only do these planters provide light, they are a great statement piece in the yard. Pin credit: Sweet and Simple Living
