This is a blog for all garden lovers who have a hard time
storing all their garden tools. I struggle to untangle the
rake from everything else that is piled in the
corner of my shed every time I go to use it. After browsing through
Pintrest looking for great new garden ideas I discovered that
I don't need to fight with my garden tools any longer!
I need to separate my garden tools and
display them in a creative order
on the outside of my shed. This way I no longer need to fight
for my rake and I now have a creative display of garden art
on the side of my shed.
I'm however going to give my tools a face lift
prior to displaying them. I have not decided what color to use yet, but I
am going to spray paint all the handles first. I'm thinking bright and bold
to match the flowers. If you decide to join me in this creative garden tool
art project please feel free to share you are on our Facebook page Mister
To get you started I am going to pin some of the creative ways
our Pintrest friends have displayed their Garden Tools.
The beautiful, dark, rich colors of Mums blooming
all around us is mother natures way of saying fall is upon us.
Mums are a great way to decorate for the up coming holidays.
They are very hearty and offer a lot of bloom for the buck. If you
are like me you wait and buy them from your local market or
farmers market once fall arrives. You can't help but pick them
up and take them home.
They are perfect for the fall season.
If you are looking for some great ideas on how to decorate with
mums this season go to Mister Landscaper Pintrest page and
look under gardens and flowers.

piece to make sure it fits just right.

work some of the areas out that have trapped air. Let the glue dry before

The fall season is among us. It's time to start
planning for your next planting season. I don't know
about you but I have a hard time deciding what to plant for the
up coming season. I like to search on-line to get
good ideas. I also thing about the holidays. "what
will I need for the up coming holidays?"
I have found that making a plan and creating a list works great for me.
If you google images of fall gardens in your state you will see many neat ideas.
There are many beautiful gardens to visit all around the United States.

Adding a garden pond to your yard can benefit you
in more ways than one. In our yard we have a lot of
low lying water that has no where to go. This is when I decided, "lets
dig a pond."
A pond would also be neat for fishing in the summer
and ice skating in the winter if you live in the northern states.
After looking on Pintrest I realized there are many different ways to
make a pond! We have a lot of creative people in this world.
There are many benefits to having a pond in your yard.
Below I have attached a few images of ponds that I found on
Pintrest and wanted to share.
Looking at all the DIY creative garden paths on our Facebook
page has inspired me to give it a try.
I have seen many beautiful DIY walk ways made out of
a collection of rocks, broken concrete, marbles, and
more! My first step is to start collecting my creative materials.
With a little searching I have found directions on how to put
in my own garden path. I also watch a lot of DIY network.
They are always tearing up back yards and laying walk ways.
I have been on Craigs List a lot! If you go under the free
section you might get lucky. I see a lot of free broken up concrete.
The trick to this is you want one side to be flat so that it is easy to lay.
I have also thought about using the following:
golf balls, river rocks, glass bottle
bottoms (bottoms facing up and tops cemented down
(be very careful not to cut yourself!)), sliced treated tree stumps, or old plates.
The list is just my thoughts as well as some of the ideas I came across on Facebook and Pintrest.
Making your own DIY garden path can be really fun!
Get your kids involved and have them help you.
The idea is to get creative and make it personal.
