Weird And Wacky Gardening Hacks To Make Neighbors Green With Envy

Gardening may be a good way to get your yard in order and your creative juices flowing, but it can also be a chore. And if you’ve battled against pesky slugs and plant-destroying frosts, you’ll know just what we mean. There are ways to make gardening a whole lot easier, though – especially if you try any of these hacks. So, pour vinegar on your soil and see what happens. You may just like the results...

41. DIY compost bin

If you don’t have a compost bin in your garden, it’s actually pretty simple to build one yourself – and with just a few materials, too. To start with, you need some 2x2, 2x4 and 2x6 wooden planks. Then, after getting hold of some hinges and chicken wire, you can finally put the box together, creating a cover at the top and a hatch at the base.

40. Nestled plant pots

Don’t worry if you think you may eventually need to relocate flowers in your yard. All you need to do is to first place your plant in a pot that can fit inside another container. Then, once you’ve inserted your greenery into the soil, you have the option to alter its position by digging the first receptacle out.

39. Citrus peel seedling starters

If you’re looking for an effective way to kick-start your seeds’ growth, citrus peel could be just what you need. After making a small opening in your peel, add some dirt and the seed itself. The fruit skin will also provide your plant with nutrients once it rots beneath the earth.

38. Lawn edging

While edging your lawn isn’t the most enjoyable job in the garden, there’s a way to make it easier. Take a 2x6 wooden plank and place it in your desired position. That way, you can use it as a guide to cut into the grass. And when you’re done, you should have a perfect line across the perimeter of your yard.
