I love concrete in the garden. It’s such an organic material that blends well with nature, yet it holds up over time, and only improves it’s looks with age. It’s inexpensive, and can be bought in ready made forms, or created by mixing with water and other organic elements. Grow a little moss on it, and you will have me swooning… So given a choice, if I can’t have a natural element such as stone or wood…give me concrete! Here are our fav DIY concrete garden projects gathered from around the web. Our featured project, above – Give you garden structure with this DIY concrete edging project.
And of course, we have our very own DIY concrete globes project from last season… Anyone tried this yet?
