DIY Garden Fire Pit
One of life’s little pleasures can be sitting out in the garden on a summer evening, but instead of having to go inside when the temperature drops, fire pits can provide you with warmth well into the night. Simple to build, a fire pit can do a few other things too, such as being an additional light source, and of course, a marshmallow toaster!
Wall blocks are suitable and easy to get hold of material to make a DIY fire pit. You can find these items in most hardware stores. Simply stack them, allowing the lawn to be the base of the pit, and have some blocks to be cut in half as to increase airflow to the fire!

DIY Garden Raised Beds
Raised beds are the perfect addition to any garden.

Anything can be grown in raised beds as long as there is enough depth and space, making it a very versatile garden supplement. Not to forget, they are much easier to spot-weed!
Easy to make, all that is needed is some rot-resistant wood cut into planks and some native soil!
