5 DIY Garden Projects

Are you ready to get outside and work in your garden?
Me too.
So for fun I have decided to round up 5 Garden projects for you that I have had a hand in building around here.
One favorite I have had in my garden a couple of years and plan on building more of is my garden obelisks.  We devised this plan as so many obelisk plans I found online had complicated cuts and for the newbie to wood working and tools it just made it too complicated so these are all straight cuts and easy assembly, plus we used inexpensive wood.  Our obelisks run about $20 each instead of $150 (a real price I had seen for a DIY obelisk).  Mine have been out in all sorts of weather and are still going strong.

zucchetta on obelisk, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comThe first one was so useful we came up with another design, a little different and I think I may like it even better…Easy Garden Obelisk 2. I have this one supporting a Tess D’Ubervilles English rose.

DIy Fence Board Potting Bench, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comPosting my painting lessons and patterns has been so much fun and I am so glad that many are enjoying them immensely.  I get wonderful notes from viewers expressing their appreciation and pleasure for sharing how to paint.  I have tried to break down the categories in my toolbar like Learn to Paint and DIY Patterns and Plans so everyone can find things easier.
Garden signs are so popular, I sell quite a few of these.
Nana's Garden sign, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comI love garden benches, so building this Farmhouse or Victorian Garden bench was so rewarding.  It is another easy for beginner project..

  1. Thank you! I have a larger toolbox I was about to trash. Now I will be painting it and filling it with flowers!

  2. One thing about the obelisk – you don’t even need power tools! Just a hand saw, screwdriver and screws (I never use nails for outdoor projects – the wind is too high here, the nails work loose) How fun!!

  3. Thank you, Linda! How exciting. I will, of course, be visiting to link up again. I really appreciate the feature!

  4. Pamela,
    Thank you for sharing all these neat garden projects at my Show and Share Party…they will be featured at the party on Monday.


  5. Would love to have one of those obelisks to grow cucumbers on. And one of these days I am going to build myself a potting bench, I just got to find the time )-:

  6. thank you so much Leiah! I hope you find the time and energy to build one. Please, so share, if you do. Happy Gardening and Building!

  7. You are welcome, I know, straight, uncomplicated cuts are the only way to go.

  8. These obelisks are great with the straight cuts! Thanks for posting them.
