Make It a DIY Weekend! Bozeman Life

Project Idea I: Go Vertical

Montana is an area of vast landscape and fields, but if you live here and don’t have that much space to work with, there is still hope! Creative ideas have sprung up all over Bozeman including one of my favorites, vertical gardening. Using materials that are already in place like fences, building sides, or lattices and combining them with planters, old coffee containers, or aluminum cans and you can form a mosaic of naturally vibrant art! Rotate herbs, flowers, and in the winter, evergreen dwarfed trees to always keep your yard—no matter how big—fresh and alive!

Project Idea II: Where the Sidewalk Ends

I feel a person should never out grow the sheer bliss one feels on a swing. This is not to say that swings cannot mature as a person does. Planting a rustic swing off the branch of a sturdy tree has the ability to transform the ambiance of your curb appeal. This is a simple project that will be there at the end of the day to kick back on and let the stresses of life swing by!
