Put your green thumb and creative skills to the test with these fun ideas


Many homeowners who have always dreamed of having a small garden at home have tried to incorporate a green pocket in different ways. Some have started herb gardens, others made use of windowsills, and a lot have chosen to take care of succulents. If you're still unsure as to how you can get started in your own space, you may want to give vertical gardening a try.

Pocket Shoe Organizer Planter

Want to start your very own vegetable patch, but all the space you have is a tiny balcony? This technique might be the answer you're looking for.

After a few hours and a couple of weeks, you'll have your own garden that not only saves space but saves you trips to the grocery store should you need herbs and garnishes, too. No need to worry about maintenance as this project keeps your space clean and is very easy to care for.
