Want to DIY your garden? It’s easier than you think.

Redoing your garden space is not only a job for professional landscapers. Using bits and pieces you probably already have taking up space at home, you can use our DIY tips to transform your outdoor space into something to be proud of!
HERE ARE OUR UNIQUE DIY GARDEN SUGGESTIONS
1. TURN AN OLD BIKE INTO A PLANTER
Fill the front basket with fresh soil and plant beautiful flowers inside. Lean it against a tree or suspend it from your patio or garden wall with hooks and watch the blooming happen, simple as that!
2. REPURPOSE OLD BUCKETS
Have you got a corner of your garden that’s desperate for a pop of colour? Give your old buckets purpose again by using them as planters, filled with different herbs or bright flowers. Take it up a notch by matching the bucket colour to the flower colour that you plant. A colour-coordinated heaven!
3. MAKE A SPACE DEDICATED TO BRAAI UTENSILS
Put up hooks next to your braai and invest in some good quality, durable braai utensils that can be hung on these hooks all year round. Saves you space in the kitchen drawers, and makes braaing even easier than before!
4. CREATE A HOPSCOTCH PATHWAY FOR THE KIDS
Using garden pebbles, create a hopscotch pattern in the soil or grass that the kids can play with all year round. It adds a bit of creativity to your plain grass or soil too!
5. MAKE YOUR OWN GARDEN LANTERNS
Using jars, drill a hole into the lid of the jar and attach a strong, clear fishing gut. Place a tea light candle into the jar and hang the jars from various branches around the garden. Light the tea lights one evening when you have guests to create a magical atmosphere.
6. PUT A TOWEL RACK TO USE
Instead of having kids drop their wet towels on the ground to get muddy and wet, install some hooks against a wall that isn’t in use, and create your own towel hanging station to keep them clean and out of the way!
7. USE WOODEN BASKETS FOR A RUSTIC FEEL
Reuse wooden baskets that you may lying around the house, as a décor items in the garden. Fill them with soil and herbs to create a country-inspired herb garden that you can make use of for cooking and baking!
It’s as simple as that to create something special in your garden! If you don’t have all these items at home, get great value for money at Household Plastics – just stop by our store to stock up for your DIY day!
