Garden Ideas

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This gazebo was created by a clever soul… he made it out of an outdated satellite dish!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.

Regards, Carla

  1. This is strange but…I really like the satellite gazabo! iI could actually see my little hot tub sitting underneath it! I think I know just where I could find on of those…where’s my tape measure???

  2. I agree, Gina! You could personalize it to suit your personality and likes! I could also see one cut in various levels of cool quilting designs, then painted for contrast!
