The sound and visual of water are always going to be a source of peace. If you have never heard of water gardens, you might be missing out. They can truly elevate your garden in a stunning way. They give your garden a relaxing atmosphere and are not as difficult to create as one would think. Your guests will surely be in awe when they learn that you created this DIY with your own hands. Yes, this project will take a bit more effort than some of the other ones mentioned on this list, but the effort is worth it. This stunning aquatic element in your garden also allows you to have some interesting plants in your garden such as floating and submerged plants— which aren’t something to be found in every garden and can be an interesting addition.


3. Herb Markers

These are very easy and quick-to-do DIY projects. You could use wood or a brick or a stone as your label— these are all fun materials that blend nicely in your garden, just choose what you prefer. The only limit is to keep in mind that you probably want to use weatherproof material. If you have good handwriting you are good to go! Just grab a marker or paint, and write away. However, if your handwriting leaves something to be desired, you can always use stencils. Stencils are easy to find and print out. With stencils having a flat base—like a brick—is the easiest option when creating this DIY.
