#DigIn to SPRING With The Home Depot!

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!

    Wow, a gardening club at Home Depot! I never knew they had this. I’m going to check it out to learn more…if it’s half as good as their other classes and kids workshops, I’m there! :)

  2. Tarah says

    Excited to see what you do! I also don’t have a green thumb for plants and gardens. I can work magic with cut flowers.

  3. says

    Oooooh, I can’t wait to see what you do! Especially a butterfly garden! We love planting a veggie garden every year as well as flowers, and I can’t wait for it to warm up enough to get started!!

    It’s so funny how different things are across the country. I live in West Texas, and spring for me means periodic intense wind/dust storms that can affect visibility (“brown outs”) and coat everything with dirt. It’s the last time I would want to be outside working on projects. I think that’s why a lot of people here don’t have gardens–also the summer sun kills a lot of plants. Anyway, it doesn’t keep most people from working on stuff. I’m just not from around here and a wimp. :) I’m a little jealous of your plans for the season! Keep us posted how they come along.

    I can’t wait to start checking out the garden stores in my nearby area. Unfortunately, it won’t be anytime soon as we have still a lot of snow on the ground and it is still cold up north.

  6. says

    I have been out working in the yard the last couple of weeks. It is so nice to be out again. I can’t wait to see how all your plans turn out! I love the flower tower, so pretty!

  7. says

    I can’t wait until I can sit out and do nothing except watch the butterflies. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    I am so excited about planting as well! We live on the 2nd floor in an apartment, but have a porch that gets the perfect amount of sunlight, so container gardening, here I come! Home Depot is where I always go for my gardening needs!

  9. says

    Arg! So jealous! Our last date for frost isn’t until at least Mother’s Day. I can’t wait to see your reveal! I love Home Depot’s garden club! The coupons they send are awesome!

    I noticed the stock outside Home Depot yesterday and have been cleaning up my garden to make space. I was not aware there is a garden club open to everyone, good to know. to Tara, I grew up in West Texas and my mom still lives out there. It’s true those strong winds and heat make it hard to have a lush wetlnd garden, but we manged to use native plants mums and hardy roses on the east side of our house quite successfully along with some cool ornamental non plant items. I bet the garden club there could give you some great advice on low maintenance gardening.

    Really excited to see what you do in your mom’s garden and on your patio! I love the Home Depot – it’s a regular date night spot for me and the hubs ;)

    This is our first spring in our house, so I’m dying to get my front yard and porch all dressed up with flowers and stuff. :) Thanks for the link to the Garden Club – I’ll definitely be checking it out for inspiration!

    I’m itching to start planting for Spring and to put our garden together! Hoping to get to do that in the next few weeks and we are definitely shopping at Home Depot to do just that!
