Even more than that,
Whether you go all-in with these DIY garden project plans or if you choose just one, they can easily be weekend garden projects you can work on to relax and let go of all the stress you had during the week. After all, there’s nothing more soothing for the soul than getting in touch with nature!

Miniature Succulent Garden
Yes, succulents are still a huge hit when it comes to garden design ideas. There’s no doubt that they help add style to your landscape, and you can create a lot of different tableaus with succulents - which also adds character to your garden. While there’s no wrong way to work with this idea, here are a couple of mix-and-match ideas:
- Use an old watering can as a container
- Make a mermaid garden with succulents
- Rose succulents will be really unique
Any outdoor fountain will catch the eye’s attention, and the best part about these is that there are many ideas to DIY. One of my favorites is this simple and tiny bamboo fountain. That’s because it’s so easy to place it anywhere you’d like and it’s the perfect small garden project.
Are you a bird watcher? Because you can also choose a lovely DIY bird bath that will both add beauty and attract birds to your garden.
Rain barrels are the project that will save you both water and money. This environmentally friendly project collects rainwater that can be used to water your garden! You can make a DIY one from a trash can and paint it to match your house color.
Repair the Lawn
If the heat of the summer has damaged your lawn - or if the damage happened because of some other reason- this is the time to get your lawn repaired! Here’s the easy way:
- Fill in gaps by forking over the soil and sowing grass seed
- Water, water, water
- Cover those parts with netting propped up on twigs (so birds can’t eat your seeds)
If you have some wall space that you can use, it’ll be a lot simpler to put your station together. You’ll only need to install some shelves, a counter, and some hooks on the wall. Otherwise, you can make a simple DIY gardening station like this one!
Paint Your Fence
How long has it been since you last gave your fence some attention? This easy DIY garden project can make a huge difference in your whole house exterior look. Make sure to pick a color that will match the style you have going on in your garden, but that will also stand out a bit.

Install a Window Planter Box
Having trouble landscaping your small garden? A window box can solve your problems! These add curb appeal and can be combined with your garden plants to create a gorgeous view. The taller the bedding, the better it will be - that way you’ll be able to see them from inside the house as well.
