Before & After: Salvaged Backyard Renovation

In Ireland Spring has been with us for a couple of months right now, but we all know the weather in this country is never very helpful if you want to work in your garden. So now that the weather seems like it’s going to be more “helpful” (let’s all pray for some sunny skies) maybe you want to start thinking about renovating your yard.

This article is that a yard renovation but it’s an alternative way of renovating your yard. In this case the owners decided to go for salvaged materials and in doing so they not only saved money, but help the environment recycling and reusing materials and end up having a very unique and vintage looking garden.

In my opinion once everything starts growing nicely it’s going to look fabulous. Jump to the article to read more about the renovation and see all the photos.

And from a salvaged backyard renovation to a front one with upcycled materials: driftwood. This is a garden in San Francisco and the owners decided to use driftwood for their house. It’s already a couple of years old but as you can see has aged wonderfully well. And in this case you should definitely go to the original article as one photo doesn’t do justice to this garden.

It’s a very original garden that is going to age very, very well and the owners or designer have shown to be very original not only in the planning but in the materials used. It’s perfect for lovers of seaside scenery or rustic looking gardens.

We love it and think it’s incredible and a great source of inspiration for your gardening and landscaping projects.

It’s an old use in the garden that is coming back: growing your own vegetables in your garden. Or at least some of them. It’s a great hobby, if you have children it can teach them where the food comes from and it can help lower your grocery bill.

Whatever the reasons you might have to consider something like this, you might want to have a good layout plan for your vegetable garden and your normal one. And this article will give you ideas about how to share your gardening space with both types of plants without any clashes. Raised beds, mixing flowering plants with vegetable ones, creating separated areas are some of the ideas from the article.

And we finish today’s list of articles with a problem most homeowners have: the trash bin and how absolutely awful it always looks. Most people are going to hide it in their backyards, but that isn’t going to hide it from your eyes. And let’s face it’s not an attractive sight.

So in order to help you with that issue this article brings you lots of inspiration and photos to help you with it. Creating an enclosed area to hide the bins, put it behind some trellis with growing plants, using a screen to strategically hide it from sight are some of the ideas in the article. But there are many more and if this is something you think every now and then you might want to read the article.
