Colorful Garden Fence
In Colorado, user TinasGarden’s family built a colorful fence to frame and protect her beautiful garden.
After receiving a $6,000 landscaping bid for their home in Wimauma, Florida, a husband-and-wife team went back to the drawing board to create their own landscaping plan. Thirty days, a few trips to Lowe’s, and $600 later, they had new beautiful landscaping around the front of their house. Next year they plan on tackling the backyard.
Customized Herb Garden
Kqualey from New Hampshire wanted a large container garden, but she couldn’t find one in her price range. She went to Lowe’s and then built this artistic herb planter, complete with lights. “This is a nice area for plantings of any kind,” she says, “and it’s a nice addition to my ever-evolving gardens!”
Tiled Terra Cotta Pots
User jaylisa0628 gave a little color and sparkle to plain terra-cotta pots. “They were made using ceramic tile, grout adhesive, grout, and sealer — all from Lowe’s.”
This beautiful and handy garden cart comes to us from user Captj68. The crafty gardener used a combination of oak and pine for contrasting wood tones for this awesome lawn tool.
