Sprucing Up this Spring with Outdoor Projects

Spring is in the air!  We actually hit 50 degrees today and will hopefully again tomorrow!  There's just something about seeing all the buds on the trees, the Easter flowers blooming, and the anticipation of the Easter Bunny himself, that gets me a-flutter with Spring time activities like fun outdoor projects.

Last week I shared with you a couple of choices of our around the house projects that we plan to tackle this year {and have in years past}, but I didn't even mention the many, fun outdoor projects that we'll do.  Some are re-dos, some are things we do every year, and some will be new because Sophia is older now and is constantly wanting to do "school time projects"!

I know, we'll be adding to the list {we always do}, but right now we have a fun Spring Outdoor Project To-Do List that we'll be tackling as soon as the frost melts off the ground!

1.  Sprucing Up the Landscaping.

Outdoor Projects - Landscaping

When we designed and installed our new landscaping, we didn't pick already matured plants and trees, except for the few evergreen trees.  We bought smaller plants to help on cost and also not overwhelm the look of the landscaping… but a few aren't fairing so well, after a couple of years, so I've decided to replace them. 

I joined the Home Depot Garden Club the first Spring we bought our house to get ideas on outdoor projects, landscaping, and gardening and re-visit every Spring to see their ideas because hubby and I are both excited to do projects.  You know, you have to hit when the husband is excited too since he has to do all the heavy lifting!

2.  Plant our Garden

In early April we always get so excited about our garden.  We don't have the most conventional garden, though.  We tried to till up some land in our backyard, but found it was just too rocky and too much of a project for our neighborhood home.  So, Rob went to work on his woodworking skills and I went to work researching which plants do the best beside others and we created our container gardening, also known as raised gardening beds.

We have 2 square beds {that house tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, spinach, beans, and more!} and one long rectangular bed for our strawberries in early Spring.  We're thinking of adding another square box just to contain the large amounts of zucchini and squash that we go through in the Summer months!

If you're interested in starting your own raised garden beds, check out the tutorial from the Home Depot Garden Club.  With step by step instructions and pictures, you'll breeze through it and have fresh veggies in your own backyard in no time!

3.  Kid Friendly Outdoor Projects

I have found a ton of different fun projects to do with the girls and a few right off the Home Depot Garden Club itself – like the Bee Box and the Window Birdfeeder!

Sophia's old enough now to really get hands on with a project and planting our garden, instead of just observing like she did when she was little!

  2. My outdoor project is to get rid of my wild flower patch and get the weeds out of my rock border. I am going to lay down cardboard to smother out the plants as soon as the snow melts. I do not want to use chemicals or pull everything out by hand.

    I don’t have a yard since I like in a high-rise. I’ve been thinking about building a small garden box for my balcony though! Maybe I’ll have to go check out what Home Depot has to offer :)
