This Online Gardening Community Has People Sharing Their Creative Gardening Projects And Here Are 80 Of The Best Ones

If you’ve ever been into gardening, or know someone who is, you’ve probably noticed how similar it is to pet keeping. Just like having a dog or a cat, there’s attention, love and care you have to give the plants so that they will thrive.

But in increasingly populated cities and our hectic lives, plants become soul-soothing companions who calm down our longing for that inner calmness. No wonder gardening and plant keeping have had a renaissance in times of pandemic. Today, there are thousands of online groups for plant and gardening enthusiasts where they share everything from how to make that soil more fertile to making sure the plants get the right combo of sunlight, to anything in between.

Listen beautiful relax classics on our Youtube channel.

The Facebook group “Creative Gardening” is one such destination, boasting a whopping 1.1M members who happily share their own gardening projects and ideas. We handpicked some of the most interesting and unique ones below, so enjoy!

Our pondless waterfall

Wow! I’m overwhelmed by the responses! We had this professionally done a couple of years ago. We had leftover water coloring from our hot tub (don’t remember the brand), and tossed it in to see what happened. The waterfall is in direct sunlight, so we do have problems with string algae. The rocks were power washed this spring, and I skim out algae as necessary.

Thank you so much for the compliments!

I’m super lucky that my guy not only loves to garden but is an amazing DIY person! I have the eye for design and color.
He did the pond himself (weeks of you tube videos lol).
When we bought this house ten years ago it was mostly gravel and there was a deck falling apart which we removed

My mums old wooden ladder was no longer safe in my opinion, painted and turned into a stand for plants and garden treasures. Matches my house doors, pots and patio chairs, it’s not all full yet, but you get idea. Had to add a shim on each support bar as they don’t match the height of the steps. Its not level, as the ground isn’t level, and I can’t be bothered to adjust it, good enough for me!

Hello ! Here are a couple other snaps of areas of my gardens. I designed everything including the She Shed. As well, did most of the work including but not limited to, flagstone, marble and tile. The house and garden was a repo and a mess. I drug in rocks from the rivers of Montana, the beach and many other places. Most of my hard scapes are estate sale finds. I do most of my own baskets and pots. I live in zone 7. W. Oregon. Basically a rain forest. I’m a 3x can survivor. I had a bone marrow transplant 24 years ago and survived it. Therefore, I’m not afraid of much. Especially color. My neighbors love it and bring their guests over. I make my own compost. Baskets and window baskets. Lots of fertilizer. Slow release granules when I plant and water soluble by Proven Winners twice a week when everything is in full bloom. I hope that this encourages others. Happy Gardening!

Having retired and down sizing I was longing for my gardens I had worked to establish for over 20 years When I saw what I was given to work with I was pretty discouraged, but I recited the old saying, “Grow where you are planted” and walla

I’ve been working on these gardens ever since I moved here in 2001. I move things around, change things and add things every year. This year we’ve had lots of rain so it’s pretty green, healthy and filled out. I hope you approve

My little flower bed I’ve been working on. I’m 72 and have back surgery and hip replacement in past year and half. Takes me a while to get stuff done. My daughter bought me the big red flower for mother’s day. We also live in rockland as you can see. Hope you like it.

I wanted to share something that makes people smile when seeing my garden.
My husband and I made this scarecrow for our close friend who’s been sitting bedside her fiancee for the past 3weeks. He had a horrific motorcycle accident.
My scarecrow aka Miss Margaret Marygold and her new friend Miss Tulip, named after the Netherlands home flower for our friend who’s still healing in the hospital.
Hoping that when they get to finally come home from the hospital, Miss Tulip will bring them many smiles as ours has brought us in our garden.

Today I am pleased to announced it has been raining here for a couple of days, and thanks to my wonderful Grandchildren I no longer encounters a muddy yard. They are still working on a few areas in the yard.
But, the happiest thing was to see my Grandson the one who engineered the project had a Seniors Prom this weekend walked out into the yard with such confidence, while wearing white. He was so proud of his participation, and the outcome, it was evident in his stance. He even chose some of the white Peonies from the garden.
Thank you again my amazing group members for the tremendous amount of blessings and encouragement granted to them. It really empowered them.
