If you have a large backyard and want to landscape it but are unsure about how to begin, a DIY project may be ideal for you. You can build a wood frame structure, called a deck, to support the growing plants. Using wood as a material is both durable and easy to maintain. A good DIY guide will give you ideas for constructing a wood DIY garden bed. Once your backyard is fully accoutred with a DIY deck or other structure, you can then add borders, planters, hanging plants, lighting, and so on.
Another popular DIY idea is to create a wooden frame structure known as a compost shed, which can be made out of wood or metal. A standard DIY shed contains shelving for tools and boards for planters. This type of bed is better suited for larger backyards, where the bed may grow taller than surrounding shrubs or plants. Some people choose DIY raised beds to replace rooms in their existing homes, because the bed fits better into the room, which requires less landscaping.
A DIY raised bed allows people to create an attractive garden, because it requires less work. It is also easier to care for and is more environmentally friendly. Beds made from wood are easy to clean, because you do not have to remove the boards periodically, as you do with planter boxes. Instead, you just have to wipe away leaves, dirt, and fallen fruit or vegetable pieces on a regular basis. However, it is a good idea to use protective covers for compost bins and wood boxes if you plan to let soil in between the boards.
