Spring is slowly arriving here in Michigan. We finally had some warm days last week to help melt away the huge snow piles (although it snowed again yesterday, boo!) but now you can see almost the whole yard! I’m getting so excited to get outside and dig in the dirt. How about you? I’ve been combing for new ideas this year trying to get ready, and I’m excited to share that I’ve teamed up with The Home Depot to show you some awesome spring DIY projects this season!
We have a LOT of work to do in the yard every spring. Anyone who winters in an area with snow knows exactly what I mean: the grass is seeing the sun for the first time since Halloween, and everything starts out brown and smushed by the weight of the winter.
Gardening is something I enjoy with my mom. I do NOT have a natural green thumb, but she definitely does! Learning from her has been a wonderful way for us to spend time together, getting our hands dirty and decorating with Mother Nature’s beautiful elements – flowers, plants, and trees. But every year, this is what we start with in my mom’s garden:
I’m limited for space in our condo, so I generally stick to smaller projects like patio planters – which this winter patio is nearly ready for! We’re just about past the risk of frost (we still had some over the Easter weekend) and I’m SO ready to put out something beautiful!
I can’t wait to show you the “after” shots, once we shake the last of this freezing weather and dig in! There are some beautiful projects on the Home Depot Garden Club website, and projects for yards of all types, whether your space is large or small, whether you love flowers or vegetables, and there are even cool wildlife observation stations. I’ve got my eye on this beautiful flower tower for the patio:
And my mom and I have been talking about building a butterfly garden for years now. This year, Raya is at the perfect age to enjoy it! There are also projects for other garden friends, like bee boxes and bird feeders!
Joining the Garden Club at Home Depot has its own benefits, too, like $300 in email-exclusive savings each year, and $5 off your first purchase of $50 to get your garden started. Emails include sneak peeks of new products, advice from Home Depot’s gardening experts, and lots of ideas to make your yard beautiful as you #DigIn to spring with the world’s largest garden community!
We are really excited to get started outdoors – it has been a LONG winter this year.
