Handmade Garden Projects takes gardeners beyond the raised bed with crafty garden projects, from eco-friendly foundations, stylish support systems, and fun features to clever containers and finishing touches. The easy-to-make, DIY projects convert basic materials and found objects into distinctive garden furnishings imbued with a modern sensibility and resourceful spirit. Projects include a quilt-inspired gravel pathway made with bluestone pavers, black bamboo poles lashed together to create a gorgeous, vertical space for climbing plants, and a quirky pergola made of galvanized piping. Handmade Garden Projects offers a fresh take on life outdoors for gardeners with acres of land, simple city-sized plots, or even just a windowsill. It "s never been this easy to transform a patch of land into an oasis filled with handcrafted flair and inventive, made-from-scratch ingenuity.
