Amazing DIY Projects with Shrubs

If you’re looking for a way to spruce up your backyard or outdoor area, you might want to think about doing some DIY projects! Not only are DIY projects fun to do, but its also a cool way for you to make interesting and unique pieces for your backyard that no one else will have! Making DIY projects with shrubs can not only make your backyard look amazing but can also save you a lot of money. The money that it would take to make a great DIY project is probably a fraction of what it would cost you to buy a decoration already made.

Here are some wonderful DIY ideas with shrubs that you can use to spruce up your backyard!

1. Make a magical fairy light display

If you already have shrubs in your backyard, an inexpensive way to make them look magical is to string fairy lights throughout them. You can choose from warm white lights to colorful lights that glow in beautiful different colors! You can buy fairy lights from the dollar store or the craft store and string them around (it only takes a few minutes!) or you can also do a magical holiday light display when it is the holiday time.

2. Make a shrub pathway

You can plant shrubs along a pathway (like a driveway or a stepping stone path in the backyard leading to a pond or other part of your garden). You can plant different colored shrubs and have them brighten up your path, or choose a single color and continue along the path. What’s wonderful about shrubs is that they are low-maintenance, unlike some fruit trees and flowering plants. Some annuals and perennials can also be hard to take care of depending on where you live, the soul that you can in your backyard, and how much sun you get. A beautiful shrub pathway can really brighten up the outside of your home and possibly even attract some butterflies!

3. Make a zen garden

Shrubs are great to put near a rock garden, pond, or stone pathway that gives off a very “zen” feeling. The shrubs are easily maintained throughout the year and mixed with a fountain, a nice bench, and some other small accents (solar lights etc.), you can really create a beautiful place where you can sit and meditate, have a cup of coffee, or read a book. You would be surprised to see just how much you can do with shrubs and what is even better is that it doesn’t have to cost you a lot of money!

Shrubs are pretty inexpensive and are easy to maintain. If you don’t think you have a green thumb, have no worries! Shrubs can be your way to spruce up your backyard without having to have extensive knowledge of how to care for certain plants and trees. Look for shrubs for sale near your home, which can usually be found in the same place that sells landscape supplies.
