Remember I talked my youngest son into going on a garden tour with me? We had a fun time- even if there was a heat wave going on.
I picked up some good ideas from this tour. Some ideas were very cool… and also very much in a recycling frame of mind. Here’s an example:
This gazebo was created by a clever soul… he made it out of an outdated satellite dish! Don’t throw them away… turn them into a garden feature!! LOL
Another good idea is in this next picture:
This gardener used clay and PVC pipes to protect his pop-up sprinklers. Good idea! This particular garden also use concrete edges where they have embedded natural stone and pebbles to give it a nice uniform texture. Again, this is a great DIY project.
Here are a few artsy touches I stumbled across:
a fishy rain chain, and every artist needs a:
totum and art studio! The totum was carved by a woman artist.
The “BEST View Award From a Hot Tub” goes to this garden:
That covered round thing is the hot tub and check out that spectacular view!! This structure also had a shower, and 2 recliners. Bring me a Painkiller drink and I’d be happy!
Here’s a nice row of houses:
The sign behind it says, “Cheep Houses for Rent with a Pool View.” LOL
All the gardens had a nice place to sit, like the serene place above.
Hope you enjoyed seeing pictures from my day.
