garden ideas, Dolphin Pool

Summer is an excellent time to work in your Dallas Backyard Garden. If you are looking for new ideas to spruce up your garden, read our ideas below.

1. Plant Bug Repelling Plants

Summer is a great time to be outdoors with family, but nobody likes pesky bugs getting in the way. There are certain plants that smell great but also repel insects. Plant citronella and catnip in your garden and in the planters on your patio. This is a safe and natural way to keep the pests away.

2. Make a Bird Feeder

This can be a fun, simple activity to do with your family. Visit our Pinterest page to see a variety of bird feeder ideas! We think your little ones will love this activity and enjoy spending time studying the birds!

3. Start a Compost Trench

This is a great way to be resourceful. Dig a trench, approximately three feet deep, in the corner of your garden. Fill with your garden and table scraps. Once this trench is full, leave to compost for two to three months, and then later spread it right into your vegetable garden!

4. Wine Barrel Planter

Old wine barrels make excellent planters. This is an easy way to add elevation to your garden and separate any plants in which you may want to draw extra attention. Flowing plants work very well in a barrel as they can drape over the edges.

5. Start an Herb Garden

Having your own herb garden is a great way to save money and enjoy flavorful dishes! Buying herbs individually can become costly, and they do not last nearly as long. Consider herbs such as rosemary, basil, and thyme. These plants are easy to maintain and grow quickly.
