I love stone! Just do. So many of you loved our post “Got Stones?” that we are doing a follow up with more great ideas for easy projects with stones and rocks. All of these are beginner projects, are simple, inexpensive, and creative…and best of all, you may have the stones right in your back yard!
Stick and Stones
Use bundles of branches or sticks to create a garden post, then top with decorative rocks from your garden. Love this!
A gabion is a box or container made of wire mesh or fencing, and filled with a material for stability. In this case, wire mesh is used to create a tall box, filled with rock, then used as a decorative column. You can create tables, benches, even retaining walls with this method. Its a trendy and modern way to re-purpose in the garden, and its so creative!
Use rocks and your fav plants to create a spiral garden.
Create a Mural
Got an ugly fence or wall that could use an artistic touch? Use rocks and stones and a construction adhesive from the home improvement store to create simple murals. This community garden has it right!
And just because it’s fun, here are some more inspirational photos with stone and rock!
