Not everyone understands the importance of garden therapy, mostly because they have never tried it with an open mind.
Our arms are open!
That’s why we understand how soothing and even tranquilizing it can be to let nature do its thing with our help.
Be it flowers, be it vegetables, or both, gardening can be a sort of therapy for you if you really give it a chance.
And if it is vegetables you are growing, you can even make yummy dishes with them and get to say that you made everything from scratch, even the vegetables.
So I’m about to share with you garden therapy DIY garden projects, yummy recipes crafty goodness.
Garden Therapy DIY Garden Projects
First up are some of the DIY garden projects you can try out yourself to give your garden a unique look with a personal touch.
I find this one a very interesting idea because people tend to think horizontal gardens are the normal way to garden.
But it’s not!
If you have a limited space to work with, this is the best DIY project for your garden. All you need is a wall or a fence to attach some planters to.
You can put up a lattice or a trellis on your fence or wall and put your plants on the hanging planters. And you can even do this on a balcony!
This one is for newbie gardeners who don’t know much about growing plants. And growing herbs is the easiest!
Plant some easy-to-nurture herbs, like basil, rosemary, or thyme, on your balcony or your yard, either directly in the soil or in different pots.
Make sure they get enough sun and water. Then, you can use these herbs for teas, cooking, or you can even make DIY beauty products from them.
Now if you actually have a lot of space to work with but don’t know what to do, you can make a garden bed, which is raised.
Easier on the back!
All you have to do is pick out a sunny spot where you would mark out your garden bed’s dimensions first.
Then, surround it with a trench and fill your channel using gravel for drainage. Use good soil and compost before planting your seeds.
Fairy Garden Project
This is the most fun one! All you need to do is pick out a theme for your fairy garden and implant miniature accessories, furniture, fairy figures, and some decorative elements in your garden.
Now you can choose some miniature plants as well, like mosses, roses, or succulents, to fully set up.
