A creative way to use that ladder lying around your house can be to use the steps as a surface for your summer garden. Just layer your pots of flowers, veggies, and plants to keep your backyard organized.
Wood Rake Rack
Another way to recycle backyard tools that aren’t being occupied is by turning your wood rake into a rack for anything you use outside! Hang your gardening tools, your dog’s leash, a hat, or even decorative items to make use of everything in your home.
Make a treat for your neighborhood chickadees and create a wreath shaped bird feeder. It makes for a nice DIY and natural decoration and keeps the birds from eating leftovers from yesterday’s barbeque.
Mason Jar Lanterns
Hanging mason jars with candles or even battery powered lights can make for a very dainty vintage looking decoration. You can scatter them across your yard as a path for light or just hang them on an alter.
Have a spacious backyard? Choose a flattering tile pattern that matches with your backyard’s theme, renovate and create a small decorative patio area. This can serve for summer parties, get-togethers, family bonding days, and seasons to come!
The days get hot and a resting area in the open air is luxurious in the summer. Add a hammock to your backyard for a serene reading, hanging, or even napping place. Pair it up with some pillows or a blanket to wrap up the look.
Have an empty garden fence around your yard or a few empty tree branches? Decorate them with store bought or even DIY birdhouses to add some color and have a designated spot for the birds to get their daily snack!
