I like to think of our whole lifestyle as one of building a garden. Tending our family, our children (or our plants), watching them grow, providing them what they need.
Literally, though, it’s the season for actually building a garden! Getting excited about that after a Loooooong winter filled with snow! We have been shopping seed catalogues, raking out beds, considering the slant of the sunlight.
My usually laid back husband waxes poetic in the springtime. Speaking of the sun, the air, the smells of summer gardens. And even the cold, frozen dirt breathes that small breath. Spring is here!
This year, we are excited to be part of the Home Depot Spring DIY program! (as a compensated blogger)
As we quell our cabin fever with preparations, I signed us up for the Home Depot Garden Club where I found several projects we are quite interested to take on!
The difficulty in building a garden in New England is that it looks rather dismal in winter and spring. Right now, ours is a rectangular, fenced in plot just outside our walk-out basement door. I’ve wanted a “prettier” garden spot to grow our vegetables.
I’m envisioning a few raised garden beds, with vertical gardening walls behind to hide the exposed cement foundation. Hubby’s always wanted to move on up with the gardens, this time literally!
I spied a nifty project on the Home Depot Garden Club website for creating easy paths using pavers. I think our revamped garden will look inviting wrapped with a stone paver path. So I will sweet talk my husband into creating this for me! What? You thought I was lifting those stones?? HA ha ha ha ha!! I’ll be over there playing in my herb garden!
If you’re building a garden too this spring, the Home Depot Garden Club gives you exclusive savings, sneak peeks of products (so you don’t miss out!) and regional gardening ideas. Plus, access to how-to videos, project tutorials, and monthly to-do lists. Information is tailored to the member’s region and growing zone. I need this, as I’m always forgetting to start my seeds with enough time for them to mature and fruit!
So! We’re building a garden this spring! What projects are on your spring gardening list?
