Display your favorite flowers on your front porch. This planter wall display makes use of the following: treated lattice, S hooks, wax, planters, and planter pots — all of which you can get from your local hardware store.
Easy Water Garden

Did you know a tree ring can turn into additional seats if you add more bricklayers on top? Why not try DIYing one on a weekend and see the difference it brings to a front yard?
