Project: Patio sprucing
I love projects like this one. After a couple hours of picking up/gathering supplies and planting, the patio looks awesome.
I picked up two new large planters ($12 a piece at Ocean State Job Lots! They have a good selection of garden stuff right now.) and cleaned up a couple more that were gathering dust in the garage.
I bought a bunch of plants, again from Honest Weight (great prices right now- I spent less than $20 on enough plants for four planters plus the border of the garden.) I ended up with four new planters brimming with flowers and plants, plus a newly-planted border along the garden side. Quite a bit of impact for under $50 and a couple hours time.
I love looking out the back door and seeing the colorful planters and welcoming patio.
