Do It Yourself Project Ideas

Now that spring has finally arrived in rural Vermont, I can start to get working on some of the do it yourself project ideas I’ve been thinking about all winter.  We have two acres of land so there are a lot of things that need to be done.  We have a few repairs to our duck and chicken coop that need to be done.  Our herb garden desperately needs some attention.  I need to mulch all the flower gardens and around the trees.  I have to prune our fruit trees and our berry bushes. The list just goes on and on.

Do It Yourself Project Ideas

Even though we have quite a few repair and upkeep projects that need to be taken care of this year, there are some new do it yourself project ideas I want tackle this year too.  I really want to put in a raised garden bed.  We used to grow our vegetables in the ground which required a lot of hoeing and weeding.   Marty is disabled and my back is protesting more and  more each year about the physical labor involved in hoeing our rocky garden soil.  A raised garden bed would let us continue to put in a vegetable garden but would cut down on the physical labor involved in the upkeep.

We need to take care of these do it yourself project ideas without spending tons of money.  We have a budget that we need to stick to if we are going to get everything done that needs to be done and still have a bit left over for a few extras. I’m always looking for new ideas to improve our yard and gardens. If you love being inspired by new ideas too, you’ll want to visit the Garden Club on The Home Depot website and check out all of the resources. When you join, you will get over $300 in email exclusive savings each year.  You’ll also get sneak peeks on new products, monthly lawn & garden ideas for your region and access to gardening experts.

A few of the cool things you get when you sign up are:

  • Save $5 your next garden purchase of $50
  • Learn about 8 new projects to help you #DigIn to spring

Just like I struggle with organization inside my home, I struggle with it outside too.  The Garden Club has to-do lists that focus on specific regions to help you stay ahead of seasonal changes specific to your part of the country. I know that the reminders that I will get from the Garden Club are appropriate to my Vermont location.  I can add a note to my planner and then try to take care of those tasks as soon as possible.

  1. i HIGHLY recommend the raised beds! I have them scattered all over my yard and they are much easier to care for than traditional in ground beds.
  2. Sounds like you will be as busy as my husband and I will this year. It never ends when you are trying to feed yourself from your land, does it?I like your duck peeking out of the cage. I love using duck eggs to bake; a neighbor gives me some now and then
  3. I really want to try a raised bed garden this year. That is on my to do list! ;)
  4. Going to join the garden club now! Thank yo for the tip.  We are going to try a raised bed garden this year too!
  5. Your photos and your plans create a beautiful image in my mind as to the finished product -- and it is absolutely color-laden! Reds. Golds. Greens. Blues. Purples. Yellows. ...and the list goes on. Good luck with your project and I look forward to seeing the result.
  6. My plan to have another bed built here soon.  I can't wait to have my garden all pretty and fresh :).Thanks for the tips.
  7. Lovely to see a bit of your property. I've never done much gardening, as I have mostly lived in apartments, but I like your plans for raised beds.

    It feels good to be getting outdoors and working on the yard. Our yard needs a lot of help. Thank you for the heads up on the Garden Club.
  9. My husband was really hoping to do some raised beds this year, but with our remodel going on, I question whether or not we'll have the time to focus on gardening this spring and summer. Seems like it's always something else taking up our time!
  10. I love having a raised bed. It didn't need to be high, but without a tiller and having buried power and cable lines it works. What do you grow? This is year two for me..lettuce again and adding onions and spaghetti squash
  11. Raised beds are amazing! So much easier to maintain and you don't have to worry about what you might dig up!
