Box with gardening tools

Satori Design For Living

Store small tools (garden hoes, Hand Trowel, etc.) in a special box. This will make it easier for you to find the equipment you need. And if you take care of the appearance of the box, it will become a real decorative element.

Anyone can make a cascading fountain from an old clay pot. It will add a special charm to the garden. In addition, the sound of flowing water has a calming effect.

Clay labels with imprinted inscription

Clay tablets for the garden

There’s something about labeling crops in your garden beds or pots. This can be done not only using ordinary board signs with labels but also in a more original way. For example, using clay labels with an imprinted inscription. Yes, you will have to tinker with their production, but such a garden (flower bed, box with seedlings) will look much more interesting.

Garden trellises

Garden Ideas inspiration

Help climbing plants by building garden trellises for them. You can place them on the outer walls of the house, allowing the bindweeds to do vertical gardening on their own. It won’t take long before you have a lush green living wall.

Garden bench-flower bed

Garden bench

Garden benches are not only a place to relax. Any bench can also be adapted for growing ornamental plants. You can cut special holes in it for containers or install the flower pots directly on the surface of the structure. However, in the second case, it is worth remembering that strong gusts of wind can knock over the pots.

Flowerbed with hose storage

It’s not so easy to come up with a place to store a hose without it spoiling the landscape design or dangling under your feet. Why not create a special niche for it directly in a wooden garden flowerpot?

Hanging flowerbed made from drainpipes

Hanging flower beds

If the garden is very small, but you want to grow as many ornamental plants as possible, make hanging flower beds from a drainage profile. In addition, this will be a great solution if you want to grow some herbs out of your pet’s reach.

Flowerbed in cowboy boots

Paint garden tools

Garden tools

Update your gardening tools so that all your tools look like they come from the same set. This is not at all difficult to do, for example, by painting all the handles in the same style. Or you can paint the metal parts of the equipment in bright colors. However, to do this, be careful when choosing paint so that it does not burst or peel off after several weeks of work in the garden.

Garden apron

Stay neat while gardening. An apron will help with this. There is another reason to buy or sew this accessory. You can keep the tools and seeds you need tucked into your belt or pockets. 

Flowerbeds made from painted building blocks

Wooden outdoor flowerpots

Decorate your porch or backyard with one or more outdoor planters made from wood. Low-growing plants and flowers look good in oblong ones, but in classic square ones, you can plant low shrubs and trees, for example, thuja.

Seed balls

Roll the plant seeds into one large ball. Instead of making tiny holes and placing miniature seeds in there when planting, you have to make just one hole and drop that ball in there. What will this do besides speed up the landing process? You will have many plants growing in one small space.

Pots with gradient
