Everyone loves a nice garden! Container gardening is easy and it allows you to bring a splash of color into your yard! The best thing about growing in pots is that anything can be a pot! Use old food containers, rain boots, tires, bedroom furniture, or anything you can find that will hold dirt and water. Be sure to drill a draining hole in each of your pots to allow for proper drainage, this will prevent root rot and other illnesses.
A popular theme for your patio or backyard is to bring the luxury and comfortability of an inside living room outside! Taking the inside out is actually not as difficult as it seems. Use waterproof furniture outside to avoid mildew and fungi growth. Set up a living room outside using a large waterproof rug and a coffee table.

Water fountains are peaceful, relaxing, and beautiful. They can however, get expensive depending on where you buy them. Instead of purchasing your water fountain from a store, consider building on yourself. Building a fountain yourself is the best way to get it right! Here’s how to get started:
