Top 10 Things To Make With Cinder Blocks
While most people will think about making a cinder block planter (Like those in my post: Top 10 Cinder Block Planters) there are many other things you can make with them. So I thought I would bring you ten of the very best ideas…
Top 10 Unusual and Amazing Garden Paths
My own garden path is something that I need to fix. You see I once tried to put down a patio with rather a disastrous effect. So now I have a lumpy, bumpy, miss-match of a path that I need to start from scratch again. But while looking for ideas I come across some rather amazing paths as well…
Top 10 Things to do With Pine Cones
While out walking the dog in the woods I often see┬áConifer cones all over the floor, just about everywhere. But the other day I saw someone collecting them (hundreds of them) and wondered what on earth they could make or indeed do with all that make pine cones. Well, it seems there are quite a lot of options, but I thought I would bring you just 10…
Top 10 Amazing Things to do With Tree Stumps
Recently I have decided to cut down an old tree in the back garden due to it being dangerous to my little one who plays in the garden. But now the main bulk of work has been done cutting it down, the tree stump still remains. But should I get rid of it? Or should I use it to make one of these amazing ideas…
Top 10 Best Volkswagen Beetles in Gardens
The first ever film I went to see in the Cinema was “Herbie Goes Bananas” way back in 1980 (yes, I really am that old and I was 5 when I watched that!) Anyway my point is that I understand some people’s fondness over their VW Beetles. Some people still drive them, some still race them and there are even people who see them as a perfect garden ornament. I intend to find out whether placing a Volkswagen beetle in the garden is madness or something that is in fact rather beautiful, as I bring you…
Top 10 Creative and Unusual Bird Feeders
I have always wondered if birds really do like mouldy bread or if they are just grateful for what they get?!? Well, maybe it doesn’t matter what they eat, but more where they eat it! After all, a feeder ball hanging in a tree is a much safer and better place to eat than bread just thrown on the garden! Would you eat if the chief just comes out and threw it over the carpet of the restaurant?!? No, I didn’t think so. So maybe the birds of this world would like somewhere a little more upper class to eat from. And so, with that in mind, I have decided I would bring you…
Top 10 Best Images of Shoe Planters
This might just be me, but as a kid I hated just one single thing more than the dentist, and that was shopping for school shoes! Boring shops, full of boring shoes, with boring people fitting them, and boring conversions about why that shoe I was trying on isn’t “quite right for him” boring, boring, boring. And to be honest, I still hate shoe shopping! But I do have to wonder what ever happened to my old school shoes. The truth is they had become worn out and had to be thrown away, but maybe, just maybe someone picked them up from the top of the dustbin and did something very special with them indeed…
Top 10 Amazing and Unusual Cinder Block Planters
I am going to admit to something here that not a lot of people know: “I HATE GARDENING!” I love the look of a nice garden, but hate doing it. For several years now I have paid my elderly neighbour in beer to cut the grass every few weeks because I hate doing that much! But something I do love looking at and making myself is what is known as a cinder block planter. Simple to make, the plants are carefree succulents and they look simply stunning. And with that in mind I bring you…
